    The Motor Vehicle (M/V) Sophie C. is the oldest floating post office in the United States.  Each season she provides mail service on Lake Winnipesaukee, a tradition dating back to 1892.  Both of her daily mail runs take her to 5 islands (Camp Lawrence, Birch Island, Sandy Island, Cow Island and Jolly Island) where her staff delivers mail to the island residents and summer camps.  In addition to being a full-service post office where these residents may purchase postal supplies and stamps, Sophie also has a collection of ice cream novelty treats and snacks for sale.  A daily ice cream bar or popsicle has become quite a summer tradition for her island friends.  Passengers are invited to fill out Sophie C. postcards and mail them right on board.  Perhaps you can surprise a friend or relative with mail sent from a boat, complete with Sophie’s own unique, collectible cancellation stamp.  Join us for the two hour tour.  Ahoy!
