The boat (Moynihan is a beautiful, renovated 60-ish year old vessel. Lucas was our deck hand and he was fantastic! Knowledgeable about the area, professional, and fun. We were a family of four adults (2 are college guys). Three of us are 6’ - 6’4”. Seating is a quite comfortable well-cushioned round bench seat around a table at the “front” of the boat. We saw several lighthouses, forts, and all the beauty along the coast. A lot of laughs. Sunset was breathtaking. All four of us absolutely loved the experience. This truly will be a standout memory of our visit to Portland. Highly recommend. PS We pre-ordered plenty of food - charcuterie, lobster rolls, whoopie pies (must order in Maine!), soups and more, and it was all delicious. Even enjoyed some local beer and spritzers!

We booked the private sunset dinner cruise and it was awesome! DON’T let the weather detour you as it was beautiful all day until cruise time.(It can be closed it ) The captain, Zach assured us we’d have a great time! We even had a double rainbow and a beautiful sunset despite the weather. The food was just as amazing ! Thank you Casco Bay Charters for making my 40th birthday so special!

Our captain Zach and first mate Lauren were extremely friendly and full of information. We had an absolute great time and would highly recommend doing this cruise with them.

This was the hit of our stay on Peaks Island! They picked us up and dropped us off which was so considerate. There were 6 of us so we had the boat to ourselves. The captain and "first mate" were great! On the ocean side of Peaks it started to rain - it got more and more intense. Our gal put down the vinyl "window coverings" and we were snug as bugs. The captain did a wonderful job of keeping the boat from bouncing around too much. The rain ended and we went on to see Portland Head Light. It was a fabulous trip, everyone was so excited that we were able to do this together. Thank you for making such a wonderful memory for our family!
