I grew up on Casco Bay and know the area intimately. I have traveled the world by water and feel this is a very special place. I find it very rewarding to share my knowledge and experience with those who have an interest in my hometown. My experience with all types of watercraft is extensive and my professional training is from one of the top Maritime Academies in the world. For the past 15 years I have owned and operated Downeast Duck Adventures in Portland Maine and other cities in the US. It is a tour based company that uses custom built USCG approved and inspected 49 passenger Amphibious Vessels to show the city to guests with a history based experience . Safety has always been the cornerstone of all operations with passenger comfort and safety paramount.
We start our experience by steaming straight through the middle of Portland Harbor where we will see the diversity that make it such an interesting location . Commercial fishing vessels adjacent to Mega Yachts . Bait shacks and 5 star restaurants in sight of one another. Structures that survived historic fires and new condominiums. Then off to Casco Bay where old forts, LIghthouses, Islands and marine life dominate the scenery .
