With Coastal Cruises, you may never need your camera's zoom!
For 22 summers now, hundreds of local folks and visitors have boarded our 23-ft. Penn Yan cruiser, the Aaron Thomas, for a three-hour tour of Moosabec Reach and the beautiful islands in the Eastern Bay.
With a maximum of six passengers on a boat designed to slip close inshore, Coastal Cruises offers you a uniquely intimate opportunity to observe seabirds, seals, and other marine life in a part of Maine that you just can't imagine from the shore!
