Pleasant cruise on the lake with two friendly, knowledgeable guides.
Living on the Hebron/Groton line, I was very interested learning a bit more about the lake. Learning there were eagles nested, and seeing the loons was nice. It was interesting, my grandaughter liked the loons, and it was nice to be out on the lake again since its been a while since I canoed. The history of that marion sunken fire boat and pictures was cool.
Enjoyed the tour very much!
While the information provided was wonderful, I was frustrated that our two guides often talked over each other making it difficult to pay attention. Their enthusiasm and volume could be overwhelming. It was a perfect day on the lake, and the boat is well suited to the tour. I was very glad to join this tour!
I’ve been playing on Newfound Lake for 30 years. I learned a lot and have a better appreciation for one of my favorite places. Our captain was very knowledgeable and fun. Thank you for a great experience!
I'm a member and we try to do this every year. Tour and info guide s we got were first rate.
The pontoon boat was much nicer than we expected and so comfortable. The captain and his volunteer were so knowledgeable and obviously love the lake. It was a great experience. One of NH's best kept secrets.
