My family and I loved the tour. The boat is very different than the other tour boats that I saw, it is much lower to the water and faster. If you like excitement then it is perfect! It was also nice to see the different islands in Casco Bay and learn some history about the area. I would recommend the tour for anyone who would like a bit more speed than a normal boat tour offers.

Excellent trip! Very informative with a splash of adventure. Loved learning about Casco Bay at higher speeds.

THE BEST EXPERIENCE!!!! We saw the best of Portland-the lighthouses, the seals, the bald eagles and the bay!

muffi861

We absolutely loved this unique tour of Casco Bay. Our grandchildren (6, 7, 8) were thrilled by the speed as we moved across the water. The tour operator was very responsive to our questions pre-tour. Our captain and crew gave interesting commentary about the history of the bay. It’s at the top of list of everything we did on our trip!

This was the most fun and invigorating way to see Casco Bay, it’s islands and multiple lighthouses to include Portland Head. 100% recommend. It was the highlight of our time in Portland.

Stayed dry; saw a bald eagle, grey seals, Harbour seals, Harbour dolphins, and lots of beautiful scenery. A great way to see Portland and a few of the many surrounding islands. Plus lots of interesting information about the area.

What a fantastic way to see the spectacular islands and shoreline of Casco Bay. Our group of 4 adults had an excellent time. Stayed dry throughout, and the speed was exhilarating. We were able to see seals and porpoises during our trip. Our guides and captain were excellent!

This trip was OUTSTANDING. Our guide was on time, knowledgeable of the area and a good driver. We booked this as an alternative to the excursions offered by the cruise line because we don't like the huge groups and the price is usually inflated. We were not disappointed! The boat holds around a dozen people, but during our trip there were six of us. We were up close to several lighthouses and the ride between each was fast! Being out on the water is beautiful and I would recommend this trip HIGHLY to anyone who doesn't mind the bumpy ride during the fast parts. We had to hang on during those moments but my husband was thrilled!
