Nice little cruise on the Kennebec River. Got to see light houses, Bald eagles, a couple of seals. The Bath Iron Works was impressive to see from the level of the river. There is a bar on the cruise and they serve some food (Hotdogs...More

We loved the River Cruise because we saw everything we were expecting to see and it was a fantastic narration. The Whale and Puffin Cruise produced neither whale, nor puffin, so this was disappointing as it was a four hour tour and extremely foggy. This,...More

The cruise boat was comfortable, the commentary both informative and entertaining, the light houses and other buildings picturesque, and the number of boats out on the bay was outstanding. I wished it had been longer, and maybe that we'd seen more seals (out of their...More

We just finished our 3rd annual Maine vacation which has included a Cap'n Fish's boat ride each time. We stayed late on our departure date to do our favorite, the Kennebec River Cruise. The boat is clean, comfy and the staff are great! LOVE this...More

We came to Boothbay to see puffins and we were not disappointed. Mother Nature offered a perfect summer day and Captain Fish’s supplied the tour. We saw loads of puffins, terns, gulls, seals, porpoises and a Minke whale. The Audubon guides and the boat captain...More

We were very excited to see the whales. The puffin sighting was not as exciting. The boat can't get close enough to really see the birds as they are depicted in the literature. We went 20 miles out after the puffin island and the whales...More

First the prize is outrageous if you want to see Puffin and whales. Of course information about whales was given but you had to look out for whales yourself and inform the crew. The staff did not know the whales like the ones in Cape...More

We took the Kennebec River scenic cruise and had a great time. Just sit back and enjoy the views. Ospreys, ducks, geese,and seals were plentiful. Bath Iron works, lighthouses , "Hellsgate", we learned about them all. Not to mention all the islands. Narrator was very...More

Luckily had the most perfect day. Prime time for Puffin viewing, as the chicks had not left their burrows yet!! Apparently August is when they start to migrate. Take binoculars, a wind breaker and a sweatshirt, plus sunscreen and a hat. I sat up top...More
