We’re looking forward to the new season and our prices will remain the same as they were in 2019. We have returned to full operation as of May 21. We have booked many charters already this year so consider booking yours soon. Our hearts go out to all who suffered loss during this pandemic, and we hope that all our lives can return to a somewhat normal flow this year and we can enjoy ourselves outside and in.
We have many beautiful and historic lighthouses in our area: Halfway Rock, Twin Lights, Portland Head Light, Ram Island Ledges, Spring Point, Portland Breakwater Light, Sequin Island, Pond Island, Squirrel Point, Phippsburg, Kennebec Range Lights, and Doubling Point. You could design your own trip to see these historic sites.
Book your 2021 tour as soon as you can through the Book Now tab on our website. If you know when you're coming to the Islands, seriously consider booking early so you don't miss out on these wonderful tours. Remember there is no payment due until the end of your trip. Each year we fill up quicker and quicker.
We added a new bow cover last Spring to increase your safety and comfort, it’s pictured above.
Eagle Island trips are planned to depart at 9:30 am and 1:00 pm daily, unless a 2,3,or 4 hour tour books first on that day. If you find you can't book a time on a specific date for Eagle Island online, call me to check on seat availability. Contact info is at the bottom of this section.
Eagle Island update. The Island will open on June 15 as planned. But the house and the library will remain closed for most of the summer due to the mold issue and it’s remediation. The Friends of Eagle Island will provide a docent in the Welcome Center every day to show the video about Eagle Island and answer any questions. The Island hiking trails will be closed until mid July to protect nesting birds as usual. It’s not great news but it could be worse. My tours will remain available to passengers but under the guidelines of the museum/house and library being closed and the trails not opening until after mid-July. If any more information becomes available I will be sure to post it. Any questions, contact me through my website, www.cascobaysightsnlights.com
Thanks to all of you who cruised with us in the past. I hope to see you again. To those of you who haven't, give us a try, I know you'll have a good time. See you on the water.

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.
We're open 7 days a week from May 15, 2021 through October 5, 2021. Book your trip soon! We accept cash, check, or credit card payment.
