Cruise the waters of Ogunquit and southern Maine on these chartered boats.
Oscar Hubbard, a sixth generation native, along with his wife Eleanor; started Finestkind Scenic Cruises in the summer of 1956 to share their love of the unrivaled beauty of the Maine coastline. What started as a one boat operation running from the town dock has grown into a fleet of three well-maintained motor vessels with a busy summer schedule of over fifteen trips a day. Responding to the ever increasing demand, the Hubbards added more trips and expanded the operating season to meet the needs of their customers. Finestkind Scenic Cruises currently operates May 1 through mid-October and has a variety of different trips and departure times to make it easy for everyone to include a trip along the Maine coast in their vacation plans.
Come aboard Nick’s Chance, for a 4 1/2 hour Whale Watch adventure. Cruise 20 miles in to the Atlantic Ocean to view Whales, Dolphins, and the marine life of The Gulf of Maine. Or join us for a 1 1/2 hour Scenic Lobster Tour on Kylie’s Chance down the Kennebunk River and along the Kennebunkport coastline. You will see Seals, former President Bush’s home, and how “world famous” Maine Lobster is harvested. Both cruises will make your vacation unforgettable.
Our sailing trips are scheduled daily depending on weather and tides. A typical course will take us along the scenic coastline from Cape Arundel to Cape Porpoise. Although the Eleanor is equipped with a motor, a comfortable sail is the primary purpose of our trip. The distance traveled is always subject to the wind’s will.
Sail aboard the 34′ Gift departing from charming Perkins Cove, Ogunquit, Maine. Captain Steven Perkins and crew will take up to six passengers for a two-hour, half day or full day’s sailing off the rugged coast of Maine. Whales, dolphins, seals, cormorants and lobstermen hauling their traps are among the possible sights you may see.
The Silverlining is a six passenger vessel, making your sail a more private experience. While there may be several other people on your trip there is plenty of room to lounge about or you can sit with the crew and help them sail!
