You will find your Captain down at the Belfast City Harbor Dock aboard the Back and Forth, a traditional 28ft wooden lobster boat, the perfect iconic vessel to take a Sunset cruise in Mid-Coast Maine. Bring along your beverage of choice and relax in one of the captains chairs as we take a short tour around Belfast harbor where we can chat about Belfast and it's activities. We will cruise over to Young's lobster pound, tie up and the captain will take you into one of Maine's most iconic Lobster pounds. It gets extremely busy, so an order of lobster rolls will be waiting for us. But there is no rush, take time to check out the lobster tanks, take some pictures and just soak up the energy of the place. Back down on the boat, we will cruise out into the bay. You can bask in the serenity, take photos, drink, eat and we can chat about everything or nothing. The Captains have endless stories about Belfast, from great whites to the gigantic sunfish spotted last season and even stories of hidden treasure out on one of the 200 islands of Penobscot Bay. Your Captain will get you out to a perfect spot where you can drift gently and take it all in. The whole trip will take about 2 hours and will get you back just after sunset.

*Don't worry about bad weather, Airbnb offers penalty-free cancellations if we can't go due to weather. Best to make a booking now to avoid disappointment. Lisa and I have created this experience with our three wonderful Captains, Mark, Tap and John. Our Captains will be the guides taking you out and you couldn't be in better hands. They all have local experience, they are passionate about Belfast and are qualified captains who grew up in and around New England. Each captain has their own unique stories and they are looking forward to hosting you on this laid back, Maine experience.
