The Best Boothbay Harbor Boat Trips

Boothbay Harbor is a great place to experience all things nautical. The Maine Coast has a beautiful scenery that’s perfect for summer sailing days. Whether you’re looking to relax and watch the waves roll past the boat or try your hand at lobster fishing, here’s the best boat trips to take in Boothbay Harbor.

Sail Muscongus Lobster Boat Tours

The six passenger Sarah Mead is the last and only sailing lobster boat in Maine. The crew will take you to waters that other boats don’t typically sail for your two-hour trip. The unique part about Sail Muscongus is the trip is completely up to you! If you want to see lighthouses or focus more on lobster fishing, the crew will customize your trip for you.

Schooner Lazy Jack

Boothbay’s oldest Windjammer will take you out for two hours while you enjoy the sights and sounds of the harbor. Schooner Lazy Jack’s day cruises take you past the best lighthouses and scenic mountains on the Maine Coast. If you prefer a more private setting, you can also rent a private charter for 2-6 hours.

Cap’n Fish’s Boat Trips

Cap’n Fish is bound to have a tour that piques your interest. Their original cruise is their lobster trap hauling and seal watch trip. The goal of Cap’n Fish was to give visitors an inside look on how Maine lobster is caught while watching seals sunbathe on the rocks along the way. If wildlife interests you, take Cap’n Fish’s Puffin nature cruise or whale watching tour. There’s also a combo trip for those who are really adventurous. Other trips include a little bit of Maine, the Cap’s Special, Damariscove Harbor, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, and Kennebec River.

Maine Maritime Museum Cruises

The Maine Maritime Museum’s 75 passenger vessel takes visitors around Maine to show what the boating capital is all about. Their shipyard and lighthouse tour takes you through the best lighthouse spots and shipyards that have been in operation for hundreds of years. The Maritime Museum is most known for their lighthouse lovers and Kennebec River lighthouses tours. Their new Lighthouse Legends and Lore Cruise takes you back in time while the guide tells stories and legends tied to Boothbay lighthouses.

If you’re coming to Boothbay Harbor to cruise the waters and soak in the nautical history, consider staying at Russell House Bed & Breakfast for a great location close to the water.
