We really enjoyed our tour on the “Ribbit”, it was a great way to explore the bay, Randy and Jen are great, and very informative. So nice to be on a small tour, and the boat ride was great fun!

What a great way to see the bay and the various islands and light houses. You ride low on the water, zipping along from site to site. The guides are knowledgable and eager to share information. I do not have a boating background but thoroughly...More

Fantastic experience. Friendly and knowledgeable folks showing you many of the wonderful aspects of Portland Harbor from a small, intimate boat. It's just WAY more fun when the water is 3' away, and you can ask questions. Parking was convenient ($12, If I remember correctly)....More

Thanks for choosing Ribbit to see Casco Bay! It was pretty neat to see the eagle and her baby. We were lucky on the seals too - that's hit or miss for us. Jenn

The boat itself is very stable. However, it does bounce when there are waves in the bay and when we go over other boats wakes. The captain tries for as smooth a ride as possible but we can’t guarantee it.
