Welcome to Portland, Maine and thank you for choosing to spend your day with Lighthouse Bikes! Here are some tips to make sure that you are ready to have as much fun as possible on two-hour Lighthouse Bicycle Tour Along the Coast. When you arrive at the shop, we will size you with a bike and a helmet. There is water available. a clean restroom and a comfortable sitting area that you can use as you await your experience. Our ride will be around 5 miles on a combination of bike paths and quiet roads that will take us along the coast to area lighthouses, forts, ship memorials and some beautiful parks.

We enjoyed the sightseeing cruise very much! Very well organized! The staff was very pleasant, and the tour guide gave us lots of information about the area and the lighthouses we saw. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day and smooth waters. We would not hesitate to book a cruise with this company in the future.

Fantastic cruise full of interesting history of Casco Bay and the lighthouses. It was chilly on the water so bring a light jacket! Really gorgeous day and the boat had great amenities. Thanks Captain Cam!

What a wonderful boat ride to the lighthouse and back. Glad I decided to take this particular tour. It was sooo worth it. Tour guide had so much information kudos to her!

Everyone was very helpful & informative. Learned a lot about Portland & the surrounding islands.

Very enjoyable and a good escape from the heat of the day
