About your host

Captain Joe, a Coast Guard licensed 50 Gross-Registered Ton (GRT) Captain, will take you on a quiet, two hour cruise of the Saco River aboard the Ruby Belle. Captain Joe has spent his life in Maine on, near, or around the water. Showing off the Saco River and its natural beauty is a dream come true.

What we’ll do

Starting at Marston’s Marina, we will cruise up-river to the dam in downtown Saco, then back down to the mouth of the Saco River in Camp Ellis. Weather and time permitting, we can venture down the length of the jetty at Camp Ellis and out into Saco Bay. Cruisers will need to keep an eye out for seals, bald eagles, blue heron, and leaping sturgeon fish in the river. If you wish, a few light tackle…
