We celebrated our friends' 50th anniversary with the Sunset cruise and enjoyed the ride, the commentary, the seals and porpoise sightings, while we visited with a fun picnic and great wine. Our captain and guide were both great!!!

Really peaceful boat ride with a lot of knowledge about the history of Portland. Brought our own drinks and saw many stunning lighthouses and even some seals on this cute old lobster boat. Definitely recommend taking this boat ride.
