We offer private hourly trips for up to 6 passengers to several destinations along the southern Maine coast.
As a guest, you get to choose how long we go for, and where you'd like to spend the day - it is your trip and we can go to just one destination or multiple locations. Please see the Gallery/Destinations page for ideas on where we can take you..
We have several popular destinations as suggestions for you to choose from. Whether it be a trip to Boon Island to see the seals, lunch in York Harbor, Kennebunkport or Wentworth-by-the-Sea, anchoring up near the beach to enjoy the sun or taking a ride to walk around Kennebunkport or the Isle of Shoals, you decide where we'll go!
One favorite option many couples enjoy is a 1- or 2-hour sunset cruise around the Ogunquit area before dinner.
What to bring/how to prepare for the trip
Note: due to the governor's COVID rules, you must wear a mask when boarding the boat, the head (toilet) is closed to passengers, and we are not allowed to serve any food/beverage. You may bring along anything you'd like to eat/drink (BYOB).
The boat is equipped with a cooler, a fresh-water sink and blankets. We recommend that every passenger bring a sweatshirt as it is often a lot cooler on the water than it is on the shore.
Passengers above the age of 21 are also allowed to bring your own adult beverages and any food or snacks to enjoy.
The boat also has an audio system with JBL speakers, plus Bluetooth if you would like to play music during the trip with a compatible device (e.g. iPhone).
We have Coast Guard approved life jackets for all passengers (including for 3 children). Although you are not required to wear one while you are on boat, we provide them so you do not need to bring one. Note that all children under the age of 13 are required to wear a life jacket at all times.
Getting to us/Parking
There are a few parking lots in Perkins Cove, primarily the one right in the middle of the cove and one across from Barnacle Billy's etc. They can get very busy during the summer months, so other options as you exit the cove are the lot across from Barnacle Billy's etc (just beyond the original Billy's) or the Perkins Parking Lot, which is on the left just beyond the fork at Shore Road (and across from That Place). When it is in service, the Trolley is another option - information on schedules and stops is available at www.ogunquittrolley.com. (Note - the trolley is not operating at this time due to COVID-19 regulations).
It is the Captain's responsibility and final decision on whether it's safe or not to take a trip. You may cancel up to 48 hours before the scheduled trip and receive a full refund, and if the trip is cancelled by the Captain you will also receive a full refund.
Any cancellations by the customer after 48 hours will forfeit the full cost of the trip.
