Overview

A unique sightseeing trip of Casco Bay aboard a 6.5 meter Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RIB). We carry a maximum of six passengers, allowing us to provide a more personalized and flexible tour of the bay. If you're looking for a tour without big crowds - join us on Ribbit One! This tour will take you on a fun and up close ride through Casco Bay in Portland, Maine. Captain Randy will stop the boat at lighthouses, forts, the working waterfront, and other sights along the route and give you the opportunity to take photos. As a small group tour, we have the ability to be flexible on the length of time at the various sights and to customize the tour for our guests. We'll meet you at the gate to the Portland Yacht Service Marina, directly across from the Maine Narrow Gauge Railway Museum. All passengers will be provided an auto-inflate life jacket to wear and need to sign a release of liability form. Children are welcome on the tour and must be at least three (3) feet tall to safely ride the jockey seats.
