In the two-hour sightseeing cruise, passengers gently glide up and down the river, with highlights called out thanks to the captain’s narration. Guests may hear curious trivia about Ross Island or learn more about Portland's bridges and unique riverside homes.
From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., guests embark on an aquatic jaunt around downtown Portland during the Friday Early Escape cruise as live bands perform signature tunes. During the performances, participants can swill sips from three full bars or snack from a barbecue plate for an additional cost.
