Private Sunset Charter on a Vintage Lobster Boat

Low Price GuaranteeNo Booking Fees
Looking for a romantic way to watch the sunset while in Maine? How about chartering a vintage lobster boat and heading out to Casco Bay, where you'll take in great views of the sea and coastline. Your captain and guide will be on board to point out lighthouses and natural feature, and you're welcome to bring food and beverages, even the adult kind, on board.
    What to Expect
    Each charter includes a captain as well as a deckhand who will serve as your guide.  You will meet your guide at Bell Buoy Park, 72 Commercial Street, Portland ME.  This is adjacent to the Casco Bay Lines Ferry Terminal.  Your guide will escort you down the ramp to the water taxi dock and assist you with boarding MONHEGAN, our vintage lobster boat.

    We will depart Portland Harbor and pass by Bug Light, Fort Gorges, Spring Point Ledge Light, and Fort Scammel as we make our way toward Portland Head Light. Your guide will point out these and other interesting sights as well as any wildlife we encounter.  If you wish, you can bring aboard food or beverages, and your guide will be happy to assist in serving.  MONHEGAN is stocked with glassware, plates, and utensils.  We provide a cooler with ice and bottled water on all charters.  Alcohol may be responsibly consumed by our guests of legal age. 

    From Portland Head Light, your captain will navigate through some of the islands of Casco Bay.  You will watch Maine's rocky, tree-lined coast slip by as you relax on our deck chairs.  MONHEGAN is a very stable vessel, and she is outfitted with a retractable weather cover so your comfort aboard is assured.  

    As the sun gets low and bathes Casco Bay in golden light, your captain will round Great Diamond Island and turn into the setting sun for the final leg of your cruise.  You will be treated to views of Portland's skyline silhouetted by the setting sun.  Throughout the cruise, guests will find ample opportunities for photos.  Can you imagine a more perfect finish to your day in Maine?
