Captain Randy and Jennifer were nice and very professional. We appreciated that this was a small boat instead of one full of tourists. It actually ended up being only the two of us which was super fun. The boat is fast and can zip around the bay to the locations of interest. The seats can get a little uncomfortable (jockey style) so I recommend standing up occasionally where you are stopped checking out a lighthouse. Great little company and I hope that they make it!

Not your usual harbor trip. This boat is cool! The seats were very comfortable and we were surprised the boat stayed dry. Loved getting so close to the lighthouses and seeing the bald eagle! If you want a smaller group and not stuck with hundreds of others, book with Ribbit Adventures.

Capt. Randy and Jennifer were great. Our family of 6 had an awesome time on Saturday. We got upclose to beautiful lighthouses, forts and toured around the beautiful islands and coves of Casco Bay. Saw an American Eagle. Randy and Jen were very informative. This is the only way to see Casco Bay and the lighthouses.

This was by far so much more enjoyable than a big boat full of tourists. The boat only seats 6 and since the front two are occupied by the captain and tour guide (an awesome husband/wife team) there would really only be 4 paying passengers. We were the only ones on this tour. The owners are extremely knowledgable and amiable people. The bay was beautiful and the boat was a blast to ride in. I would highly recommend this tour!

Being a local, I thought I knew all the ways to get out on the water in the area but looking through TA , I saw Ribbit Adventures and thought why not try it on a beautiful day in Casco Bay! Only in their first year of operation, I think they have a real winner here as this is a fun way to tour the islands and get up close to the lighthouses. The RIB (Rigid Hull Inflatables Boat) holds up to 6 passengers. The couple operating the boat are very friendly and stop at several Casco Bay interest points and give you some history. I was able to take some fabulous pictures of Spring Point and Portland Headlight as we were able to go up much closer then the larger tourist boats. We also were able to see some harbor seals. Beyond the sights it is fun just to fly over the water and enjoy Portland at it's best! The $35 per person is reasonable for all the fun and views for 80 -90 minutes. PS we parked on the Eastern Prom and walked down to avoid parking fees. The entrance is across from the Narrow Gauge Railroad so it's a quick walk to the meet point from the hill.
