Moose watching tour and/or lake tour

We'll be in Greenville for a couple of days at the end of September/very beginning of October. We're planning to take the Moosehead Lake boat ride and are thinking of also doing a moose tour. I see both early morning and late afternoon moose tours, and both seem to be available by canoe or on land. Any experience with these moose tours and any recommendations you may have? (I'm night certain my wife would be up for a canoe tour, but let me know what you think in any event.)

I'm reluctant to make reservations too far in advance given the vagaries of the weather. For both the boat tour and the moose tour we'd be looking to do these on a weekday, if that matters.

Northeast White Water runs moose tours in the area. I have not taken a tour with them but did talk to the owner when he also operated the Indian Hill Motel. They used to have a daily count of moose sighted, but I don’t see it on their website now. Plenty of reviews

If you get a good-weather day, the Katahdin steamboat cruise is a truly memorable experience. As far as a moose tour by land or water goes, having done neither but having spent considerable time in the Maine woods, I would offer the observation that if the weather is "iffy" the land tour is more likely to go anyway, whereas the water tour is more likely to cancel, especially if it is by canoe.
