Evan and Ronnie gave us an amazing individual tour of Casco Bay and the lighthouses on the Ruth. We saw about 15 seals and cormorants on the cruise. Evan was very knowledgeable about all the islands and shared colorful local stories with us. We really enjoyed this boat cruise. Highly recommend this boat cruise.
