Like the rest of the world, Maine businesses are navigating the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to check websites for your destinations before visiting for the latest health and safety guidelines in place, and please remember to be patient and kind while visiting.

Maine takes pride in offering unique sightseeing and tour options for visitors. But these are more than tourist attractions — they’re experiences you won’t forget.

On Maine tours, the freedom of Maine’s coast is yours to experience. Maine offers all varieties of boat tours, such as the Portland ferry service to the Islands of Casco Bay and sunset cruises aboard one of Camden’s majestic windjammer sailboats.

Experience Maine’s Iconic Lighthouses

Nothing is more emblematic of Maine than the more than 60 historic lighthouses scattered along its coast. Plan your whole trip around them, or just see a few by boat tour, but be sure to visit at least one while you’re here.
