What you'll do

You will find your Captain down at the Belfast City Harbor Dock aboard the Back and Forth, a traditional 28ft wooden lobster boat, the perfect iconic vessel to take a Fall Leaf peeping cruise in Mid-Coast Maine.

You can relax in one of the captains chairs as we take a short tour around Belfast harbor where we can chat about Belfast and it's activities.

We will cruise over to Young's lobster pound, tie up and the captain will take you into one of Maine's most iconic Lobster pounds. It gets extremely busy, so an order of lobster rolls will be waiting for us. But there is no rush, take time to check out the lobster tanks, take some pictures and just soak up the energy of the place.

Back down on the boat, we will cruise out into the bay. You can bask in the serenity, take photos of the autumnal foliage & we can chat about everything or nothing.

The Captains have endless stories about Belfast, from great whites to the gigantic sunfish spotted last season and even stories of hidden treasure out on one of the 200 islands of Penobscot Bay. Your Captain will get you out to a perfect spot where you can drift gently and take it all in.
Other things to note
All safety equipment and instructions will be provided. Our vessel is fully insured and our Captains are all qualified. Toilet breaks are recommended before heading out.

Where you'll be

You get the pleasure of seeing Belfast from the water and get time to view all the unique vessels in the harbor we will cruise out to the iconic Youngs lobster pound where we will call in to grab our cruise feast. Once we are prepared we will head onward to the Belfast monument and out into Penobscot Bay. Maine really is best seen from the water & it is most incredible foliage.

My wife and I had a great experience touring the water and peeping the leaves around Belfast. The hosts and the boat Captain made the experience easy and enjoyable. The lobster pound was also really cool to see. We learned how to put lobsters to sleep while we waited for our food, which was so cool. I would definitely recommend this experience, but bring some warm drinks or hot coco. It can get chilly.

Captain John was a delight. We had a terrific time with him on the water- he is very knowledgeable and gregarious. Thank you for arranging a special meal option for me! Super fantastic day!!!

Our guide, John, was absolutely wonderful. He quickly identified with us and was super flexible. We felt safe and comfortable during the entire experience. The lobster rolls were beyond our expectations at Young’s Lobster Pound! Again, the best part of the experience was the special attention we received from John. A host of knowledge and experience. You can’t go wrong with this trip.
