The silence and darkness that envelopes Casco Bay at night can be incredibly peaceful. But there’s also plenty to look at: The stars overhead, the sparkling waters below and the lights of the Portland skyline and lighthouses in the distance. This tour offers a chance to see an entirely different side of Portland harbor when a full moon lights up the bay.

Your guide will start your tour off with a brief paddling lesson and safety talk before leading you past rocky Fish Point and towards Portland harbor. Then you’ll glide through the darkening waters looking out for seals and bioluminescence as you make your way back to the mainland. The group will stick close together, keeping track of each other with the help of flashlights. The SUPs we use for our tours are suitable for paddlers weighing up to 250 pounds.
