Fort Gorges, a Civil War-era granite fort surrounded by water, is one of the most fascinating spots in Casco Bay, and it's only accessible by small boat. This three-hour trip is the best way to combine the experience of sea kayaking on the Maine coast with exploring one of the region's most interesting historic landmarks.
During the early days of statehood, Portland operated as one of the primary ports for the East Coast. After being burned down multiple times, several forts were designed and implemented to protect our harbor. This tour gives people the chance to explore one of those forts in a unique and hands-on way.
