What people are saying about Portland, Maine

The Harbor Cruise was the highlight of our visit to Portland. The views from the seaside of Casco Bay, the history & points of interest helped us plan the rest of our stay. The great crew and the sunset made the experience memorable! We highly recommend Harbor Sunset Cruise to anyone visiting Portland, Maine!

The Captain and first mate were great. The only thing I would recommend is they invest in a PA system to make it more interactive. Overall great experience.

Don and Mike were excellent guides. Well worth the money!!
