Took a 2 1/2 hour adventure on a beautiful day along the coast from Ogunguit to York and back. Crew and tour knowledgeable and informative. Was able to see some familiar sights from a different perspective. Length of cruise long enough to be relaxing yet short enough to allow for other activities the same day.

While visiting Ogunquit, we were able to pick a gorgeous day to take the cruise to Nubble lighthouse! The narration was terrific, the boat was very nice....bathrooms on board....and the scenery was beautiful! Definitely recommend!

My husband and I have been coming to Maine for years, but hadn't taken this boat ride for about 15 years. The trip was to the nubble light house but along the way, Pat gave us great history of the area as seen off shore as well as making an awesome rum punch. When we got around the lighthouse, she...

We decided to take the lighthouse cruise to Cape Neddick last minute. When we went to pay the lady she advised us we would go if there were at least 8 people. It turns out there was only 3 couples total but they still took us out. It was truly perfect! The weather was not too hot and it was... More

It was a nice boat ride on a beautiful day but somehow, we expected more history. Thought there would be info on lobstering and possibly who lives in some of the beautiful homes. We went around the lighthouse which can also be done from land. For all the great reviews, it was a disappointment. Not that informative.

Sorry the trip didn't meet your expectations - regarding history, we do give a fair amount of information on the coastline, and discuss all points of interest along the way - but we also feel that not every minute of the trip needs to be filled with talk and most folks appreciate some "quiet time" when they can just relax...

We took the cruise to see the Nebble Lighthouse! My son is 8 and it was also his first time on a boat. He loved it! It rides along the coastline and they tell you all about the history! We even got to see a Sunfish even though it looked alot like a shark! Lol

My wife and I went on the lobster cruise, very interesting to see how they trap them. Great boat, crew, very good trip.

We took the 90 minute cruise to the Nubble Light on a beautiful September day. Kathy, the tour guide, did a great job and I learned a lot about the area and about lobstering in Maine. However, I cannot give the cruise an excellent review because they throw bread to the seagulls right over the paying customers' heads! Not a... More
