See the historic Old Port area and Portland’s working waterfront.  Step aboard the Monhegan, a vintage lobster boat, and set sail on a two-hour cruise into Casco Bay.  

You’ll get stunning views of the Maine coastline as you cruise by four different lighthouses.  Your knowledgeable captain will tell you about local nautical history and the history of Portland and Casco Bay.

Sail by the famous Portland Head Light, Maine’s oldest lighthouse.  You’ll have ample photo opportunities that you can share on social media.

See Fort Gorges, a mid-19th-century granite fort, one of Casco Bay’s most fascinating spots.  It’s accessible only by boat. 

As you cruise, keep your eyes peeled for seals, guillemots, eagles, eider ducks, osprey and all sorts of seabirds.  You’ll also see Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse and Bug Light Park.

If you’d like, bring a picnic.  Utensils, plates, and glasses are provided as well as bottled water and a cooler with ice.  The Monhegan has a retractable weather cover to ensure your comfort during the cruise.

Enjoy the incredible views, marine life on display and the interesting tales of Portland.  This will be an afternoon you’ll never forget.
