Lobster Boat Tours

Departing daily in-season from the Nonantum Resort Marina (Memorial Day – Mid-October)

The Rugosa, named for the beautiful seaspray rose that lines our coast, is a fully restored, 1963 oak planked lobster-style boat that offers a 1 to 1 1/2 hour tour of the Kennebunk River and the beautiful Kennebunk coastline. During the trip your captain and sternman (or woman) will educate you on the regulations, techniques, lore and art of catching/trapping lobster. The Rugosa offers a hands on approach to lobstering. After a short trip up the coastline to see the beautiful homes of Ocean Avenue, and the highly photographed Bush family compound at Walker’s Point, the Rugosa turns out to sea to haul a few traps.

In addition to our daily scheduled lobster/coastal tours, the Rugosa is available for private charter. With hardwood, cushioned seating, a covered canopy, and plenty of room to mingle, the Rugosa makes for the perfect open boat for an evening cocktail cruise or sunset tour. The Rugosa can accommodate parties up to 24 guests, and we look forward to hosting your corporate party, family reunion, engagement party, tour group, class reunion, wedding shower, graduation party, or friendly escape. If you want to see the coast of Maine and learn about the area and lobstering, the Rugosa is the boat for you.

Private charters available by appointment. Please note that children 6 years old and younger are not permitted on the Rugosa.

Sailing Tours

Departing Daily In-Season from The Nonantum Marina – The Pineapple Ketch

The Pineapple Ketch offers a 90 minute sail along the Southern Maine Coast. Departing daily from the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, the tour can be as hands on or as laid back as you would like; haul lines, raise sail, take a turn at the helm or just sit back and take in the beautiful views and fresh ocean air.

Whether it’s a morning sail, an afternoon adventure, or a sunset excursion, the Pineapple Ketch has just the trip for you. A sail aboard the Pineapple is not your regular coastal tour with scripted dialogue that is repeated hundreds of times a summer. The crew is made up of local marine enthusiasts who are all more than eager to talk with you about anything from sailing, lobstering, and fishing, to boating history and pirate lore, navigation, the winds, Maine (New England for that matter) or just our favorite recommendations on where to eat and what not to miss while in the Kennebunks.
