Rocky Bottom Tours is located on Portland Pier on the working waterfront. They provide experience for guests from around the world onboard their former commercial fishing vessel Wild Duck.
The Wild Duck was built in 1998 and was used previously as a fully functioning 40-foot offshore lobster boat. This vessel is completely approved by the Coast Guard for commercial passenger use, and all permits and licenses are up to date.
Please feel free to buy and bring some local Maine beers to enjoy during the 90-minute tour if desired.
After we tie back up on the dock, you are in a perfect position to grab a lobster dinner at the adjacent Luke’s Lobster waterfront location or at any of the great restaurants that Portland is so well known for.
Please note that timing may change without advance notice due to weather events and the availability of boat staff.
