Cruise by surrounding lighthouses, yachts, windjammers and islands while watching for seals and other wildlife. Help the Captain haul a lobster trap and check for critters. Touch tank on board with an array of sea life. A wonderful, safe way to see the harbor, relax and learn about Maine's beloved lobster. We offer One-Hour lobstering and lighthouse cruises, 1.5-Hour Eco-Tours and a special 3-Hour Sunday Morning Lighthouse Cruise. Beer, Wine and soft drinks available on board. Owned and operated by Captain Dominic and Liz Gioia, Native Mainers and Camden locals.

My husband and I did the Eco cruise for an hour and a half, and it was beautiful! The staff members were very knowledgeable, and the boat was wonderful to sail on. Definitely worth the time!

We had such a wonderful time on this cruise and an added bonus of watching the seals. We were on the one hour tour and it was excellent. We saw beautiful lighthouses and learned about lobstering. It was a wonderful, exciting, informative cruise.

We took the 1.5 hour Eco Tour. We learned about baiting and catching lobsters, saw seals, and bald eagles. The tour was well organized. The guide and boat captain were very knowledgeable of the Camden area. I highly recommend it.

Best to check their web site. I think the lighthouse cruise is only Sunday. We saw many lighthouses and it was a nice trip. We went in late Sept. and dressed in layers. Probably the same in early June.
