Maine Boat Cruises & Boat Tours - Maine Coast

Boating opportunities abound along Maine's 5,500+ mile coastline. Board a sightseeing boat and take in the coast's rugged beauty and bountiful aquatic life, charter a sailboat or motor yacht and explore Maine's charming harbors and secluded coves, or tour the state's outlying islands on one of the local mail boats or ferries. Whale, seal, and puffin watching tours are quite popular among Maine's visitors and make great fun for the entire family.

For those with a more adventurous spirit, try a Windjammer sailing trip or sea kayaking tour. These adventures are available for half and full day trips to extended overnight tours! Over 3,000 islands dot the rugged coastline, giving sailors ample opportunities for exploring Maine's breathtaking seascapes.
