Quick Details


Looking to take a private charter around Southern Maine? New England Eco Adventures has several options that can be flexible for your needs. Check out our popular options below and contact us to schedule.

  • Chevron down Custom Private Tours
  • Spend Some Time on the Ocean with Friends and Family

    Imagine turning one of our incredible ocean adventures into a private occasion—just for you and your special group! Come celebrate your family vacation, birthday, wedding party, or any kind of event that you want to create. We guarantee to make it exciting and memorable for you and your guests, just as we do for all of our adventure tours. But, in this case, you will have the captain and boat all to yourselves.

    Every tour we offer can be customized just for you.  You are the boss and get to decide if you will go whale watching, picnicking, bar hopping or on a lighthouse excursion.  Or maybe you just want to captivate your senses with a fast, easy riding boat with the sun, ocean mist and sea breeze at your back.  It’s all up to you—we’ll make it happen!

    Portland and Portsmouth Lighthouse

    With a customized trip, you don’t have to limit which lighthouses you see. We can visit any and all lighthouse from Portland to Portsmouth or even take a trip out to the Isle of Shoals.

    Full Moon Tours of the Gulf of Maine

    Few things are more spectacular than the full moon rising behind the gorgeous backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. This is one of our favorite charters, and we highly recommend it.

    Old Orchard Beach Fireworks

    If you’re a fireworks lover and enjoy being out on the ocean under the tranquil night sky, this is your kind of charter trip.

  • Chevron down Research and Education
  • Let us bring you to the Gulf of Maine. We’d love to take your school, library, club, or another group to conduct an interactive program about marine life, and teach your students or members about the Gulf of Maine!

    New England EcoAdventures is happy to be offering all of their adventures for schools and colleges during weekdays in spring and autumn, at discounted rates.

  • Chevron down Corporate Outings and Team Building
  • Looking for something a little more unique to do with the team this year? Get out of those office chairs and corporate meetings and enjoy an amazing time out on the ocean! Our tours will leave everyone refreshed, and put a smile on each face.

    Whale Watching Excursions (Most Popular)

    Have an intimate whale watching experience with our naturalist/captain—all year round!  The R.I.B.’s low profile and high-speed potential allow more time for passengers to get up-close and personal to marine life.  Imagine sea life so close you can reach out and touch it.


    Nautical Theme Treasure Hunt Game

    This is the chance to test your problem-solving abilities, observational prowess, and hands-on seamanship skills as you and your group follow a series of clues.  These clues will take you to the most interesting sites around the harbor.  We can design a custom game where your captain takes you to the destination of your choice throughout San Diego Bay.

    Eco-Challenge Game

    Questions and challenges revolve around the natural world and the coastal eco-system.  Teams will compete offshore and in San Diego Bay and will be tested on their observational prowess and problem-solving abilities as they answer the call of nature.

    Adventure Picnics

    Adventure on the high seas has a way of working up the appetite, so enjoy a picnic lunch on a secluded beach off Cape Porpoise. Arrangements can also be made to drop you off, pick you up, or wait while you have a delicious meal at one number of the area’s fabulous dining spots.
