Visiting a new town can be very exciting. There are so many things to do and see! Here in Boothbay Harbor, we are fortunate enough to not only have places to visit by land but by sea as well. We at Topside Inn always recommend seeing Boothbay Harbor by water for any traveler, whether it’s your first time or fiftieth. One way to explore our area is with these fantastic Boothbay Harbor cruises. Each of them can offer something a little different, so let’s have a look at how each can be wonderful.
Boothbay Harbor Cruises
Balmy Days Cruises– Balmy Day Cruises have a little bit of something for everyone. They are one of the ways to get to Monhegan Island, which is a fantastic day trip. They also offer harbor tours, sailing, and fishing trips. Another interesting tour is their lighthouse tour, a top attraction here.
Schooner Eastwind– Like lighthouses, Maine is also known for tall ships. These stunning ships are fun to sail on as well as learn about. Schooner Eastwind is being crewed by Herb and Doris Smith who have sailed all around the world together. They offer a two-hour voyage showing you some of the beautiful sites of Boothbay Harbor.
Schooner Lazy Jack– Join the crew on this beautiful tall ship for a fun Boothbay Harbor cruise. You can choose their popular 2-hour trip or schedule a private charter for a romantic afternoon. Some of the places you will see are Burnt Island, Squirrel Island, Ram Island, and much more.
Maine Music and Dinner Cruises– Hosted by Cap’n Fish’s Boat Trips, you can get the best of Maine on these lively Boothbay Harbor cruises. Every Sunday they offer a reggae cruise with live music and delicious drinks.
Boothbay Harbor Marine Life Tours
Cap’n Fish’s Whale Watch– There is nothing better than seeing the coast as well as the marine life. You can choose between their whale watch tours or their puffin tours. Both are a lot of fun and very educational. All of their boats put your comfort and safety as their top priority. Indoor and outdoor seating gives guests a choice on how to experience their 3-hour trip.
Sail Muscongus– Captain Nate takes guests on an interesting and informational tour of local lobster traps. On their 2-hour trip, they have so many activities. You will first get to see lighthouses and the Maine coast. After that, you will get a chance to be a lobster hauler. Help the crew pull up the traps and see what is inside. They offer 4 tours a day, morning, mid-day, afternoon, and evening.
