“Our tour of Casco Bay was simply amazing. Everything from the views, to the wildlife, to the history and conversations, and to the boat was fantastic. Captain Joe was so accommodating in every respect, as well as kind, funny, informative, and professional in giving my girlfriend and I a date we’ll always remember. He truly strives to provide patrons with a personal, personable, and private experience that other Portland charter businesses simply cannot. We’ll definitely be back (and maybe will have to take a trip down to Florida)”.

“Captain Joe was awesome! We loved his humor and knowledge. He was so much fun and extremely down to earth We had a blast! The dolphins, the sunset, the food…. Best honeymoon! Thanks Joe’
– Ellen H., Quebec City, Canada
Captain Joe was awesome, and he lets you bring your own food and beverage. He is a very safe captain with a new boat, and he has a great personality. It is clear Captain Joe loves what he does. He was able to take us to small coves in the areas that are a treat as they are often not able to be visited on traditional sunset cruises. This is a great tour!!’
-Tammy F., Santa Fe, NM

“If you are looking for something personable this is it! Not only was Joe accommodating, friendly, and just awesome, he told us we were the good luck charm for the incredible dolphin show we got to see! And it was most incredible. Worth every penny.”

-Erica M., Nashville, TN

“Captain Joe was a great tour guide!  Down to earth, professional, knowledgeable & really did care for my children.  He had life jackets & sunscreen in case you forget it.  Tierra Verde & Pass-a-Grille are beautiful from the water, too.  My family would certainly tour again with Captain Joe!”

-Loren L., Jacksonville, FL


“We couldn’t have asked for a better boat tour around Casco Bay than the one we had with Captain Joe! It was a very personal tour, he was very knowledgeable and accommodating. His tours give you the individualized attentions the larger boats can’t provide. Customer service is outstanding; was very outgoing and conscientious of passengers’ comfort. This tour shows you islands, forts, and lighthouses you may not be able to see otherwise! Overall, salt and mist tours made our trip to Portland and we will definitely be going back when we visit again!”

-Carolyn B., Winston-Salem, NC

-Nicole J., Chicago, IL


“Truly a highlight of our week long trip to Portland and Boston! Captain Joe took us on a very enjoyable sunset tour of Casco Bay, providing lots of interesting information, friendly conversation and laughter along the way. When I first read about the tour, I assumed we’d be on the boat with others, but nope — it was a personal tour with just my husband and me aboard. VERY worth the cost; I can’t imagine finding a better deal for a private tour of a beautiful bay. Thanks Captain Joe!”

-Darla C., Ellensburg, WA


“What an amazing way to spend a summer day on Casco Bay! Being a Mainer I’ve been on several boat tours around the bay but this one has been the best one yet. Captain Joe‘s knowledge, kindness and overall personality makes the whole experience. Whether you are from Maine or visiting, I highly recommend taking a couple hours to spend on the coast of Maine with Captain Joe!”

-Alanna H., Windham, ME

-Wanda R., Port Orange, FL

“What a great day! My family of 4 went out on the water with Capt. Joe.  The boat was amazing, clean and so seaworthy! We cruised along with the wind in our faces! We saw many attractions from the water and he let us take as many pictures as we liked, even positioning the boat so we could get the best shots! We loved watching the seals and of course the lighthouses were beautiful! He was such a warm, kind and knowledgeable captain! Going out in the water with him felt like we were spending the day with a good friend! He was so informative and fun yet also had an eye on our safety at all times! The weather that day was supposed to take a turn for the worse and he made sure we were back safe and sound before any threat. We have two teenagers in our family and they couldn’t quit talking about what an amazing time they had for the rest of the day! It was truly a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Capt. Joe and his tours!”
