Open Sea and Close to Shore Cruising!
This fabulous 44-mile trip offers a variety of nature as well as historical and modern man-made structures!
From raptors to ducks or great blue herons to black guillemots, the list of bird sightings is long. You might see terns at their nesting site on Pond Island in the spring and loons in the fall. Look up at the colorful changing leaves in September to see other migrating birds, and don’t forget to look down for seals and porpoises!
With close to shore and open sea cruising you’ll even pass through Upper and Lower Hell Gates, see up to 7 lighthouses, and historic Fort Popham – dating back to the colonial days. Then let your captain bring you up to date on the latest modern day ship building projects at Bath Iron Works.
In the fall, this is one of best trips for leaf peepers to view the colorful fall foliage!
- Vessel Comfort: We have the largest and most comfortable main salon in the region with padded seats and tables. You can relax with food and a drink from our galley, which features a 360-degree view of the outside. Our large open upper deck lets you enjoy the sun and fresh Maine air! Speakers throughout the vessel allow you to hear the narration no matter where you choose to be.
