United States Mailboat Cruises

The oldest floating post office in the country

Catch a glimpse of lake life that can't be seen from the M/S Mount Washington.

The U.S. Mailboat navigates smaller channels and waterways to provide postal service to the island residents of Lake Winnipesaukee. On each of her two daily mail runs, she'll visit a number of different islands, and the Skipper will point out areas of interest along the way.

In addition to postal service, She also has a collection of ice cream treats for sale. A daily visit to the dock for a snack is a summer tradition for many of her island friends. Passengers aboard the Mailboat are invited to fill out postcards and mail them right on board, complete with a unique, collectible cancellation stamp!
