Booked a sunset tour and will be back next year. First we went up river to discover bald eagles, osprey, great blue herons, snowy egrets, and belted king fishers while striped bass and sturgeon would jump. Heading downstream we passed many fishing from shore and jetties. Passed by UNE and visited Wood Island and its unique lighthouse. Ask Captain Joe about it. Once we turned around we had a grand dinner while watching a most incredible sunset. Don’t be wishful, book a sunset or coffee cruise for the most wildlife and color. Other cruises would be fun too. As a Master Maine Guide, I am very particular about recommending cruises. This Captain know how to do a great tour!

I’ve wanted to cruise the Saco River for years and I’m so glad we finally did it with Captain Joe. He’s not only a great guy, but he’s also very well-informed and an excellent navigator. Despite our age range- my husband is 79 and our grandson is 6- we all really enjoyed it. It’s both beautiful and interesting- and we actually got to see a bald eagle!


We embarked on a 2 hour cruise with Captain Joe. If you’re looking for a tranquil boat cruise along the Saco River, then Captain Joe is your guy! Captain Joe is personable and knowledgeable about the area. We saw a bald eagle and various other wildlife. Thank you!
