Since 1872, the M/S Mount Washington and her sister ships have invited passengers to experience the beauty of Lake Winnipesaukee. We’ve been here through some of our country’s greatest challenges, including world wars, cold wars, depressions, recessions, the Spanish flu and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Although the COVID-19 crisis is unlike anything we’ve seen before, we remain confident that our country will come through this situation stronger than ever. Mount Washington Cruises has always held the safety of our passengers and crew as our top priority. We recognize that in the short term, changes are needed to keep everyone safe.
We are committed to following all guidance from public health officials regarding the hosting of public events. Though the current mandate expires on May 4, 2020, we are delaying the start of our operating season until June. As we get more information regarding the success of our community efforts to combat COVID-19, we will continue to evaluate what additional delays — if any — may be required.
In the meantime, we are reinventing our cleaning procedures, reevaluating our on board services and implementing new systems to maintain social distance on board. This crisis will pass and when it does, we want you to know that we’re doing everything we can to keep everyone healthy. We look forward to seeing you on the big lake, but until then — stay safe!
