In all the years I’ve been around I cannot think of a better month for cruising the big lake, Winnipesaukee, than September after Labor Day. You can enjoy the best of weather as summer is still in bloom and it’s never quite as busy on or around the lake as it is in July or August (especially mid-week) as kids are back in school.
The Mount Washington continues it cruising season offering two daily cruises from Weirs Beach with service to Wolfeboro six days a week (Mon-Sat) and Alton Bay one day (Sundays). I recommend the morning trip out of Weirs at 10:00 am and plan a day by getting off in Wolfeboro at 11:15 am to walk around and explore for a couple of hours. The Mount will return to Wolfeboro at 1:45 pm to pick you up and return you to the Weirs by 3:15 pm. Wolfeboro is a quaint little New England hamlet with many offerings for dining and shopping. Again, mid-week is ideal for this option as you will find it quite comfortable and easy to navigate with less tourist congestion.
We also continue our popular Sunday Champagne Brunch cruises as well, departing Weirs Beach at 10:00 am & 12:30 pm from Weirs and 11:15 am from Alton Bay.
Lastly, our dinner dance cruises continue to be offered on the weekends and you can get the information on this website.
As we get to the end of the month you will start to notice the onset of Autumn as the leaves begin to change color and the air has a crisper feel. This brings a whole other aspect to a cruising experience for you to enjoy.
