If you are ever in Maine this is a must do!!! We wanted an intimate excursion that would cater to our adventurous side but could accommodate not just me and my husband but my mother, preteen, and our 5 month old baby. Philip and his wife went above and beyond for us and we had so much fun. They were professional, accommodating, fun, and just great people! We got to go swimming in the ocean, paddle boarding, all while listening to great tunes and having great conversation. We will definitely be doing this excursion every year when we are in Maine.
Our sunset cruise was truly beautiful. The weather was perfect… Had an amazing time with the caption, Phil. His boat is clean and beautiful. He is accommodating. I already recommend him to all our friends and will book his cruise again.
I told Phil we were looking for a sunset cruise and boy did he deliver. We cruised through the pass between Great Diamond Island and Cow Island, grabbed a ball and ate fresh oysters shucked by the captain himself as the sun set on the mainland. Beautiful moment!! Thank you Phil and Kayleigh for an unforgettable experience!! 10 starts if I could give them!!
We had an awesome trip with Maine Coast Cruising. The boat was amazing - very comfortable with all necessities. We moored off the Gosslings for a night of camping on the island - taking the paddle boards out for sunset and sunrise. Captain Phil and Kayleigh were great hosts and made our trip a blast!!
We went out with Phil about a week ago for an evening cruise around Casco Bay and absolutely loved it. Phil and Kayleigh are super professional yet incredibly fun to hang out with - it feels like you are just cruising around with old friends! They are attentive to all of your needs. The boat was incredible. We had so much fun, I will be recommending Maine Coast Cruising to everyone!
My parents and I had an amazing time cruising! Dave and Phil took great care of us! Dave was amazing and customized the experience for an awesome time! We loved that he listened to our requests and made sure we had an excellent experience. We will definitely be going again!
If you want a unique Maine experience, Maine Coast Cruising is a must for your bucket list. It was such a fun and relaxing trip cruising Casco Bay, its small coves and seeing its amazing secret beaches. Anchoring for a refreshing swim was the icing on the cake. Thank you Captain Phil and crew!
I took my Daughter and Grandchildren on a 3 hour cruise around Casco bay . The youngest is 8. She was entertained for 2 hours and 45 minutes. That is a real testament to how beautiful and interesting this trip is.
Phil and Kayleigh were wonderful , knowledgeable hosts. I would love to go again . We will remember the trip fondly.
We had a fantastic time with Phil out on his boat in Casco Bay! We explored a beautiful area next to Long Island where we were able to paddle board, walk along a white sandy beach (with not a soul around), jump into the water, and enjoy the beauty of the Maine coast. Ice cold drinks and an excellent playlist made it feel like a truly relaxing escape. What an amazing day. Thank you Captain Phil!
Phil at MCC took me and a group of friends out for an awesome cruise and then dropped us at a gorgeous island in Casco Bay for a night to do some tent camping. There are so many charter options out there--use MCC if you want to put a truly adventurous trip together! Phil is kind, professional, experienced, and an all around awesome guy. We've already booked another trip.
An experience tailored to your personal preferences; top notch, talented, warm and friendly crew with unsurpassed customer service. A must for anyone wanting a unique experience and an amazing opportunity to enjoy the coast of Maine.
We took a private, customized cruise with Captain Phil on Friday, June 4th 2021 - It was an amazing experience and beautiful scenery/tour. He was able to anchor in a cove area for about an hour while we enjoyed each others company, our cocktails and appetizers. Between the old forts, beautiful islands and seal you can't get much better. We will be booking again soon!
Stop searching right now and book with Captain Phil. It will be worth it! Phil is a top notch captain and guide- fun, safe, knowledgeable, experienced, and overall fun guy! His boat is phenominal - clean, comfortable, modern, and ready with Phil to provide a great time. Phil and crew seemed truly committed to making our trip fun and memorable. I will definitely book again and will be recommending often! Enjoy your cruise!
I had the best time exploring Casco Bay with Maine Coast Cruising! It was such a fun way to kick off summer in Maine. Captain Phil and Kayleigh were so awesome, we will definitely be coming back. They also have the comfiest sweatshirts!
I cannot recommend an experience with the team at Maine Coast Cruising highly enough. Kayleigh and Phil run the boat with an enthusiasm for Portland, Casco Bay and its surrounds that is so informative, interesting and fun! They were so willing to find a plan that worked for us and showed us little coves and islands that were real hidden gems away from the ferries and crowds. The amenities on board were excellent - so much space aboard for a relaxed trip with our friends watching Casco Bay go by. We already can't wait until our next trip later this summer!
We just had an amazing time out on the water with Captain Phil! What a way to see Portland! We had never been to most of the places he took us - past gorgeous islands and into little hidden coves. The boat had everything we needed - (even a super clean and quite fancy little bathroom.) It was super easy to get over to the marina from Portland and get out on the water. We’re already planning another trip for later in the summer - can’t recommend this company highly enough! Best summer activity when visiting Portland.
I purchased an evening cocktail cruise for my girlfriend's birthday. We had such an amazing time. A beautiful sunset bathed in ocean island scenery, experienced from the comforts of a luxury cabin cruiser. Captain Phil is a friendly host. I highly recommend Maine Coast Cruising.
Along with our 7-month-old daughter, my wife and I enjoyed our unforgettable time with Maine Coast Cruising. As new parents and with safety on our minds, we felt totally at ease with Phil's two decades of hands-on, invaluable experience running boats combined with his like-new Cutwater 30 Command Bridge boat, the latter of which must be seen in-person to be truly appreciated. We also felt totally at home with Phil’s warm, welcoming, fun, unassuming personality and demeanor. He and his crew provided us with a truly one-of-a-kind Maine experience. We cruised the waters and explored the islands off of Portland, including Peaks, Great Diamond, and Little Diamond—all while enjoying the comforts of his well-equipped, spacious, safe boat. We give Phil and his crew our highest recommendation, and we look forward to booking again soon!
We had an amazing Mother’s Day brunch cruise with Phil in casco bay. It was so easy and so enjoyable! Phil made the whole experience a complete joy. I highly recommend maine coast cruising for some beautiful views and a smooth ride. We also had our 8 month old infant with us and that worked out well!
