My husband and I have visited Boothbay many times and were looking for an outdoor activity we had not done before. We decided on the Burnt Island Lighthouse Tour experience provided by Balmy Days Cruises. It was a gorgeous day (July 21st), the weather was just perfect. The boat ride over to the lighthouse included a harbor tour of the... More

Balmy Days runs a variety of day trips from Pier 8 in Boothbay. Everything from trips to Monhegan Island, whale watching and fishing excursions to the 1 hr harbor tour that stops at Squirrel Island. Service has always been great and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Certainly bring a coat since it is generally much cooler on the... More

What a fun cruise around the harbor and islands off Boothbay Harbor. Took out grandson and he had a blast, wanted to go again. The captain does a great job of explaining the sights we were seeing. Also did package delivery and mail pick up. Pretty cool trip!

My husband and I, along with another couple decided to take the one hour harbor cruise on one of the Balmy Days boats. It turned out to be more of a ferry than a cruise for tourists. The ship was used to deliver flowers, groceries, etc. The locals and those renting housing for the summer were gathering on the ship... More

Be sure to dress for the cool to cold breezes even in the summer daytime. We go out on one of their cruises every time we visit the harbor.

We expected to go around the harbor but we were basically just along for a ferry trip.The boat went to squirrel Island and unloaded cargo and picked up workers.I was trying to escape work for 3 days.The trip was rushed and we got off asap.

We took the 1-hour bay tour and it was really lovely. The boat was quite nice, well kept and the crew was very helpful and nice. The tour was very interesting and it gave us plenty of information about Boothbay and its surroundings. The price is OK as well. I definitely recommend it!

Nice day trip. Couple hours ride out and back, 2 1/2 hours on the island. Nice, relaxing trip. A real getaway from it all.

Excellent tour. Trip out to Burnt Island was nice but tour on island, with reenactment actors for Lighthouse family was very very good. Beautiful views, beautiful island. Wish I had a boat so I could visit on our own just to hang out, picnic on island and go in water along the small beach or off the dock. Great experience... More
