The 74 ft. Motor Vessel (M/V) Sophie C., the oldest floating post office in the United States, is also the only U.S. Mail Boat on an inland waterway. Each season she provides mail service on the lake, a tradition dating back to 1892. Both of Sophie's daily mail runs takes her to 5 islands where her staff delivers mail to the island residents and summer camps.

The Doris E. also offers 2 hour cruises from Meredith.
