2-Hour Lighthouse Viewing & Sightseeing Charters

Experience SCENIC Maine and join us for a personalized, private tour!

Everyone knows some of Maine’s historic lighthouses.  They are featured on Red Lobster ads and plastered on U-Hauls and RVs.  But how many get to see some of these iconic beacons from the water on a private charter???


This 2-hour cruise is the perfect way to see the lighthouses, historic stone forts, and rocky islands that make Casco Bay a world-renown destination.   Bring along some food or drinks to enjoy, don't forget your camera, relax in our deck chairs, and experience authentic Maine aboard our classic wooden lobster boat! 


This charter is private, meaning only your group will be on board, along with our captain and your guide.  Casco Bay Custom Charters is the only private charter company in Portland to include a guide on every trip.  Your guide will point out historic sights, wildlife, and other points of interest.  You are welcome to bring aboard any food or drinks you would like. Your guide is also happy to assist in serving any food or beverages you wish to bring aboard.



  • THIS IS A PRIVATE CHARTER.  When you book this charter, you are booking the entire boat for ONLY your group (up to 6 passengers, including children).
