Evenings on Casco Bay are always a special sight to behold, whether it’s a clear “golden hour” of sunlight low in the sky or an ephemeral but spectacular light show as the clouds bend the setting sun’s rays into streaks of orange, red, and purple.

We are always looking for ways to provide Maine’s best tour experience. When we happened upon the idea of combining some of Portland’s best coastal sights with a curated selection of locally brewed beer, spiked seltzers, and fine wines, we knew we had a winner, and our “all-inclusive” tour concept was born. There’s no better way to enjoy a boat tour of Portland’s lighthouses, historic stone forts, and the scenic islands of Casco Bay!
As with all of our private charters, these 2-hour sightseeing tours will host only your group aboard our beautifully restored wooden passenger cruiser, MARIE L, along with your captain and deckhand. Your deckhand serves as your personal charter host, serving up drinks, pointing out wildlife and interesting sights, answering your questions, and bringing Casco Bay to life with stories and anecdotes.
Weather permitting, we will cruise out of Portland Harbor and past four of Maine’s lighthouses, including Bug Light, Spring Point Light, Portland Head Light, and Ram Island Light. Along the way, you’ll see the beautiful coastline of Cape Elizabeth and the Casco Bay Islands, working lobster boats hauling traps, seals, seabirds, and other wildlife.
As an all-inclusive charter, our guests are treated to unlimited locally brewed beers and spiked seltzers, fine imported red, white, rose, and bubbly wines, plus non-alcoholic selections. In addition, we offer premium upgrades to include locally crafted canned cocktails, small-batch natural wines from single estate sources, and fine French Champagnes.
For those wishing to enjoy a meal or some light bites during their cruise, we offer onboard catering provided by Pepperell Provisions and Charcutemarie. See our Food & Drink menu for more details. You can order at the time of booking, or any time up to 72 hours prior to your departure.
This private lighthouse viewing charter is perfect for all kinds of special occasions, especailly bachelor and bachelorette parties, groom’s dinners, family reunions, corporate events, and team-building events. The combination of an elevated cruise experience with delightful cuisine and spectacular views from the sea creates an experience no one can forget.
Not sure if your event is right for this cruise? Here are some of the types of events that we’ve helped make a success in the past.
Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties
As one of the most common groups we host aboard our lighthouse and sightseeing charters, we know this is a fantastic way to celebrate either the bride or groom (or both for a “Jack and Jill party”) with an authentic Maine experience. This tour is often the start of a perfect night in the Old Port. We can pick up and drop off your party at Custom House Wharf, in the heart of the Old Port.
Enjoy a relaxing cruise of Portland Harbor with some of your favorite people the night before your big day. We’ll be happy to serve up food if ordered and included locally brewed drinks while you take in the beautiful Maine coastline.
Bring your entire family together for a unique experience with up to 16 guests aboard your sightseeing charter. Our Sightseeing tour offers a bounty of quality time, shared laughter, and great drinks as you explore Casco Bay’s rugged and beautiful landscapes.
Corporate Outings and Client Appreciation Events
