Sheepscot River Cruises

Sheepscot River Cruises will inspire you on the river waterways cruising aboard the first and only fully electric U.S. Coast Guard certified vessel in Maine. With a licensed, local captain as your guide, you will see what our beautiful area has to offer.

A One Hour Cruise

Join us as we depart from the Landing at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and glide through the water aboard the Beagle, a seven passenger fully electric vessel. You'll see picturesque coastlines with seagulls on outcroppings and cruise past iconic Maine images - lobstermen hauling their catch, bridges to small islands, osprey and their young in nests. You'll have a relaxing and delightful time in the comfort of your canopy-covered Beagle while you enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

To help make your experience more enjoyable, please bring a windbreaker. Please also make sure to bring your camera because you will have plenty of photo opportunities.


Please reserve online. You can also reserve online at the kiosk at the Landing where the Beagle departs from and at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens Visitor Center. For general questions, please call 207-633-6598.
