We chartered a private stargazing tour. Captain Ben and his astronomer co-pilot were great. Timely and convenient pickup, comfortable boat, great educational activity for the children (ours were ages 5 to 12). Great for families, groups, friends, even dates.

This 90 minute boat cruise to look at the night sky away from Portland's light pollution was most enjoyable. The astronomer accompanying the trip was knowledgeable and fun, and the crew were helpful and very pleasant. A nice and unusual evening.

Having never taken the water taxi from Portland before, it was a little difficult to find the dock. That being said, a call to company was all it took to get directions to the location. From there, the two crew (I forget their names, sorry)...More

Great cruise with attentive crew and a great astronomer to point out the constellations for us. Can't wait for the Perseid Meteor Shower cruise. Should be amazing.

We went to all 5 or 6 stops on a round trip ride and they were all docks - no beaches to be seen. However, the stop by Bug Light Park is relatively close to Willard Beach, near Fort Preble and the Southern Maine Community... More
