Cap'n Fish's Cruises

Cap’n Fish’s Cruises is dedicated to providing you and your family with a fun, educational, and memorable experience. We have been providing high quality cruises in Mid Coast Maine since 1935! We offer a variety of daily sightseeing and nature cruises May through October. All of our trips offer views of Maine’s unique coastline, lighthouses, and wildlife along the way. It’s truly a “Seafari” for nature lovers to keep your eyes open for seals, porpoises, dolphins, seabirds, sunfish, or even sharks!

Cap’n Fish’s Cruises offers premier Whale Watch Cruises, which have been operating for longer than anyone in the region. Our Captains have the most knowledge of the whale feeding grounds and movements, and our expert Marine Biologists and Naturalists provide an entertaining and informative narration on the sights and wildlife in the Gulf of Maine. Every trip is different so be sure to join us for an unforgettable whale watching experience!

Cap’n Fish’s Cruises also partners with the National Audubon Society to offer Puffin Cruises narrated by researchers from Project Puffin. See the Puffin Colony on Eastern Egg Rock and other beautiful coastal features along the way!

Our sightseeing cruises commenced with our Original Harbor Tour, a sure hit with the kids! You’ll see Burnt Island Light and Ram Island Lighthouse; visit some seals swimming in the surf or sleeping on the rocks; and even get to see how lobsters are caught while you watch a real trap get hauled onboard! At only 1 hour and 15 minutes long, it’s the perfect length to squeeze in on your trip to Boothbay Harbor! Other sightseeing cruises range from 2-3 hours and cover regions from Pemaquid Point Lighthouse to a 44 mile journey of the Kennebec River!

We also offer Reggae Music Cruises, Specialty Cruises, and Private Charters - perfect for a family reunion, wedding, or corporate event!

Our ships are efficient, modern, and comfortable. Offering plenty of room, there’s 360-degree views from two decks. Enjoy the sun and open air on the top deck, or seek weather protection inside on the lower deck to make your trip the most enjoyable in Maine. Relax in our galley while enjoying a large selection of snacks and beverages, including beer and liquor options!
