I recently had the pleasure of embarking on the Best Of Maine Lighthouse Scenic Cruise, and I can confidently say it was an unforgettable experience! From the moment we stepped aboard, we were greeted with warm smiles and infectious enthusiasm from the entire crew. What truly set this tour apart, though, was the guide’s extensive knowledge. It was evident that they were not only passionate about the area but also incredibly well-informed. As we cruised along, they shared fascinating historical tidbits, intriguing local legends, and even pointed out hidden gems that most tourists might miss. Their ability to blend humor with a wealth of information kept everyone engaged, making the tour both enjoyable and educational.

It was very informative and scenic. The tour guide, Erin, was friendly and funny. The captain was knowledgeable and skilled at the helm. It was worth every penny and more for all the beautiful pictures I got out of it.

The weather was great, the scenery beautiful the guide knowledgeable. Very informative. There were four of us and it was the highlight of our New England color tour! Staff were friendly and courteous. Restrooms clean.

It was awesome, very informative and great way to see things you can't see on land. Highly recommend them.

Erin was a wonderful andknowledgable guide. The boat was great & clean. It was so cold, lol. :)
