Saturday June 2 Perfect Day for Mainers to Spend a Day on the Bay

On Saturday June 2 Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber member day trip excursion boats from Port Clyde, Rockland, Rockport, and Camden invite you to get out an experience the beauty of Penobscot Bay, the expertise and stories of local captains, and the comfortable pleasures of gadding about in boats with the first annual “Spend a Day on The Bay” celebration.

Participating vessels will be offering either discounts ranging from 20-50% on the cost of a regular ticket or exciting premiums and gifts on this one day only. The aim is to encourage locals and visitors to get out on the water in order to have more people understand what a wonderful gem our bay is, and what a great time can be had with our local day trip captains.

The largest bay on the east coast after the Chesapeake, Penobscot Bay offers stunning scenery, mysterious islands, snug harbors, abundant wildlife such as bald eagles, ospreys, porpoises, seals, sea birds, and more, amazing views of the Maine coast, and some of the best sailing and boating grounds on the east coast, if not in the entire United States.

It’s simplicity itself to take advantage of these great offers. Either reserve in advance (click through below for contact information) or book dockside on June 2.
