While passing through Portland Harbor, you will see what makes it one of the most historic areas in the country. From its beginning in 1633 to modern day, the area has been molded by storms, fires and wars. We will see marine life including seals and osprey in there natural environment. See upfront the yachts and mansions of the Foreside as we work our way east to the Royal River estuary. You will have a chance to enter Harraseeket Harbor through the Pound of Tea channel. Continuing to the eastern edge of Casco Bay, we come to Potts Harbor at the end of Harpswell. For centuries fisherman have journeyed to sea and today it provide some of the best scenery and dining.

We had a blast!!! Captain Joe was professional and his knowledge of local history was amazing. My husband's family has been in the area for generations, but I learned many interesting historical tidbits on this tour. The hovercraft is able to access very shallow areas, unlike other boats, and so we were able to get closer to seals, birds, etc. on shallow islands in Casco Bay, which was fantastic. Highly recommend!
