We took this cruise with some out of town guests & it was definitely a hit. Casco Bay is beautiful, so this cruise is well worth it just for the view. However, Captain Tom & the crew set this apart from other Casco Bay experiences....More

We went twice, first time was really good for the kids , they were involved. Second was different , the kids were not allowed to do anything. So the trip is nice and instructive, but all the fun depends on the staff.

My wife has a very queasy stomach. She is very nervous about riding in a small boat that may cause sea sickness. Does your boat stay in a harbor, or does it go out into open water?

We stay in the calmer waters of the bay. Sea sickeness is something our passenger hardly ever experience.
