Our first year of full time operation was a tremendous success because of all of you who chose to experience Casco Bay and Eagle Island with us. The results for 2018 exceeded my highest expectations with people from all over the country cruising with us. We even had international guests. For me, it was one of the most enjoyable summers ever.
In an effort to make our tours even more enjoyable and comfortable, we have upgraded our boat to a 25' Robalo center console. The longer length and wider beam provide much more seating space and the hull design will provide a comfortable ride even in rough seas. We now have a door on the starboard side of the transom to make getting on and off the boat easier. The new boat and all it's features should make your time on the ocean with us even more memorable.
Book your 2019 Orrs Bailey Island 2 or 3 hour tour as soon as you can through the Book Now tab on our website. Our trip to Eagle Island was very popular this past summer. We had to turn away over a hundred people. In an effort to allow us to get more people to this historic site, we may combine your group with another, up to a maximum of 6 total passengers. The new boat allows us to do this while maintaining your safety and comfort. To visit Eagle Island this year you need to call or email us to book a trip for you and your group. Contact info is at the bottom of this section. Trips will be available at 9:30 am and 1:00 pm as needed.
Again, thanks to all of you who cruised with us in 2018. I hope to see you again. To those of you who haven't, give us a try, I certainly know you'll have a good time. See you all on the water.
