WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT TIME

Please, everyone, be smart, stay safe, and use common sense. This will eventually pass and we can return to our lives. I will be on the water as soon as it is safe. I hope to see you there.


Virus Update:  4/28/2020

The State of Maine has decided to remain in quarantine until at least May 31. They have also stated that they probably won't approve of boating with passengers until July 1, 2020. This is devastating news for my business, as it is for many, many small businesses here in Maine. I will shut the calendar down through May 31 and if nothing changes, shut down June some time in May. Please call me if you have any questions about tour availability at 207 406-2124 or email me at cascobaysightsnlights@gmail.com 

Virus Update:  5/4/20

We are currently planning to be open full time on July 1. Let’s hope things continue to improve. Bring any PPE you may wish to use and I will have my face mask with me to use if it makes you feel more secure. It’s going to feel good to get back to touring.

2020 PARKING GUIDELINES

image641

 As the popularity of our tours increase and as the popularity of Morse's Cribstone Grill continues to grow, parking has become a problem. In order to continue to use Morse's docks, I have had to make arrangements for parking away from the restaurant. As you come across the bridge and  pass the restaurant, a couple of hundred feet up the road on the right is the Rob Williams Real Estate Office. He has granted me the right to have you park on the street in front of his office for $5 a car. If you look at the picture to your left you will see my car in the appropriate spot. I appreciate his allowing us to do this, and I thank you in advance for adhering to this solution to the parking issue.
