Published DateWOLFEBORO — The vintage Hacker Craft Millie B is beginning its third year of plying Lake Winnipesaukee under the ownership of the New Hampshire Boat Museum.
The third season of narrated tours began Memorial Day weekend and continues through Columbus Day. On weekends during the shoulder seasons and every day in July and August, the Millie B and its dedicated and experienced crew of captains and dock
attendants will offer 45-minute narrated tours along the eastern shore of the lake. No advance reservations are needed for day-time tours that start hourly.
This season, under the guidance of co-managers Dan Williams and Margaret Wood, the Millie B is offering a number of new features. The Museum has recently invested in a blue tooth headset speaker system to ensure everyone can clearly hear the Captain's narration. Sunset Cruises will be added this year. These 90- minute cruises will offer an intimate, and entertaining opportunity for friends and family to gather together to enjoy the lake, light hors d'oeuvres, and byob beverages. Although reservations are necessary for Sunset Cruises, they can be made up to noon of the day of the tour. A minimum of four people are required.
The Millie B also offers private charters, which can provide unique memories to help celebrate major events such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. Many brides choose to arrive in style at their lake wedding on the Millie B.
Also new this season will be discount prices for riding the Millie B for seniors, teens, active military personnel, museum members, and families. To learn more about the Millie B, tour times, and ticket prices, visit www.nhbm.org. Or to book a charter call Margaret Wood at 603-491-9950.
