What you'll do

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.
Other things to note
I am a qualified US captain and I have comprehensive insurance. The boat carries life jackets and complies with all US coast guard requirements. You are in safe hands. Dress in layers!

Where you'll be

You get the pleasure of seeing Belfast from the water and get time to view all the unique vessels in the harbor. We will cruise out to the iconic Youngs lobster pound where we will call in to grab our sunset cruise feast. Once we are prepared we will head onward to the Belfast monument and out into Penobscot Bay. Maine really is best seen from the water & it is most beautiful at sunset.

Lisa was very communicative in the days before our boat cruise regarding the weather forecast. She offered us a refund the day of as it was cloudy and we weren’t going to be able to see the sunset, but we chose to go anyway. We enjoyed the experience, however it was hard to hear the captain as he spoke very quietly. The lobster roll from the lobster pound was delicious!

It was a bit chilly this time of year but there were blankets & scarves that made it more comfortable. It was a beautiful harbor cruise & a delicious dinner. They even taught us about the lobsters at the lobster pound & showed us how to make them sleep. We had a great time & recommend it to others looking to experience Belfast Harbor.

It was a fun experience. Somewhat because we were with people we knew. The captain was very hard to hear - he spoke very quietly. He also didn't really seem to know what was going on when we got there which was a bit annoying. We had to tell him what we had read on the experience.

It was a lovely evening on the water! Tap made us all feel very comfortable on the boat and shared interesting information about the area.

This was a total blast. With any tour where we didn't know anyone else in our party, it's partially the experience and partially the group. Our group was a ton of fun, and it was only made more fun by Mark, who was an excellent guide. This was worth the drive and worth the cost, for sure!!

This is a wonderful experience for my girlfriend’s 30th. Captain Mark knows the area, history and fun tidbits of boats, harbor life, world experience, sustainability and lobster. The sunset was breathtaking and the lobster rolls were unmatched on our first ever Maine adventure. They were great communicators and accommodators - we had a little trouble finding the location and they made everything right and special. Worth every penny. Thanks everyone!
