Ekal is a new service being offered in the Meredith area for the first time in the 2009 boating season. Scott Crowder of Bear Island, Meredith NH, is the founder and owner of the company. Scott has over 15 years of boating experience on Lake Winnipesaukee and is a licensed commercial captain. When asked where the name comes from, he informed me that Ekal is Lake spelled backwards. “I was looking for something different to name my business,” says Scott.
Whether you’re looking for a tour of the lake or an action-packed day of water sports, including tubing, water skiing or wake boarding, Ekal will do it all. Scott operates a world class performance ski boat, Tige RZ4, that is capable of seating 17 people, although Scott prefers to take groups no larger than 8 to 10 people at a time.
No matter what the activity is or how many people will be going along, the cost starts at $150.00 per hour and trips can be anywhere from one hour to several depending on your interests. The hourly cost goes down as the number of hours go up. Often you can schedule your trip on the same day, but Scott recommends making your reservations in advance to ensure availability. You can learn more about Ekal at their website: www.ekalexcursions.com or by calling 603-493-8517.

“Ekal is passionate about one thing and one thing only – the Lake. The individuals who live a lifestyle around lakes know what we’re talking about. Countless hours spent out on the water, livin’ and laughin’ with friends and family until the sun sets and the campfire is lit. We live a lifestyle that many only dream of and we understand this – which makes us appreciate it even more. Join us and Live Our Lifestyle!”
