Join us for an unforgettable collaboration between Maine Brews Cruise and Portland boat tour company, SeaPortland.

The tour begins with a short voyage across the picturesque Portland harbor to House Island. Note that we won’t be exploring the fort itself – for that, be sure to book the historic fort tour. Our main event commences at the pier, offering breathtaking views of the Portland skyline and the harbor.

Here, we deep-dive into the riveting history of rum in Portland and enjoy a tasting session featuring the finest products from Three of Strong Spirits. Sip on their ready-to-drink cocktails and rum spirits as you unravel the secrets of their distillation process and immerse yourself in the history of rum.

Three of Strong Spirits is a renowned distillery nestled in East Bayside, Portland, Maine. Their journey started with a simple conversation between friends that has evolved into a community-focused brand, crafting world-class rums that reflect the spirit of Maine. They use 100% organic evaporated cane syrup and molasses, yeast, and pure water from Maine’s beautiful Sebago Lake to craft their delicious rums. Not just this, they have also launched a line of shelf-stable ready-to-drink canned craft cocktails that bring the bar right to you!

Ninety minutes later, we’ll have you safe and sound back in the Old Port. We love leaving our guests richer one great boat cruise of Portland. We know you’ll enjoy memories of a Portland, Maine boat tour and the vibrant flavors of local Maine rum for years.

As a centerpiece to our tour, we dock at House Island – a private gem in the heart of Casco Bay. Here lies the historic Fort Scammel, an 18th-century marvel with secrets of the past and breathtaking views of the Portland skyline and harbor.
