Board a private boat for a cruise through Casco Bay to a private Island for a delicious "Downeast" lobster bake and a tour of a Civil War Fort.
We took the House Island excursion in Portland, ME. They ferried us over to the island on the island owner's boat. There was not enough inside seating and the temperature was only in the 50's when we left port so it was an extremely cold ride. A brother and sister own the island and the brother is the person who gives you a tour of the Civil War era fort. The fort itself was interesting but he had a tendency to go off onto subjects that really had nothing to do with what we were viewing and was at times very boring. Part of the $99 price included a lobster dinner which was pretty good.
