This boat ride was phenomenal! Randy and Jennifer are super friendly and very knowledgable people. Their boat is almost brand new (2015) and it can really move!!! It's also small (seats six), so if you're looking to avoid tourist traps, this boat is the way to go. We had a group of three and we had the trip all to ourselves. As a result, they gave us the option to customize the trip. It's very rare to come across that sort of flexibility. The waves were very choppy in some parts, so they were super careful not to put us in any danger. However, they made sure we had a lot of fun with the swells, and they made sure to show off the boat's speed and handling whenever possible. We were beyond satisfied with the experience!!! Would recommend to anyone looking to get out on Casco Bay!
My wife and I loved our tour of the bay with Ribbit Adventures. First, they are beyond professional. We had booked the tour as we were going to be stopping in Portland on a cruise. Not being fans of what cruise ships offer for excursions, we researched and picked this tour. And we could not have been happier. Due to Tropical Storm Hermine, our cruise itinerary changed and we came into Portland a day earlier than expected. Before we were even able to contact them, Jennifer had already texted and called to get us set up on a tour that day.
The trip around the bay was great, Jennifer and Randy know their stuff. So, bottom line, skip the tourist traps and go on this tour of Casco Bay with Randy and Jennifer.
Randy and Jenn are great! They are extremely friendly and make the tour a lot of fun. This is a great and beautiful way to see some of the history of Portland. If you are in this area you need to book a tour with Ribbit Adventures...you'll really enjoy it!
We were pleasantly surprised with the comfortable seating and overall experience. We have been on several boat tours before and found this one to be a more intimate experience. It was fun being so close to the water. There was absolutely no water spray. Captain Randy and Jennifer have a great knowledge of the history of the area and gave an overall genuine feeling of love for Maine. A must do experience for anyone wanting to see the light houses.
Ribbit Adventures offers such a unique way to experience Casco Bay and its many coastal sites. The entire experience was first rate which began with donning the most unobtrusive and comfortable life preserver (auto-inflating) I have ever worn.
Over the years I have viewed the harbor from many ferries and tour boats, but Ribbit Adventures offers an impressive perspective as the riders are far closer to the water’s surface and regularly to the coastline. We were forewarned of the potential of occasional water spray, but on our picture perfect day, no one appeared to have gotten even a drop of unplanned moisture. The layout of the seating provides excellent unobstructed viewing for all passengers.
I highly recommend this unique way to experience Casco Bay. It is a memory that will stay with me for years to come.
