The Lubec area is blessed with a wealth of lighthouses, best seen and appreciated by sea. Whales spend their summer feeding just off shore, seals swim in the channel known as the Narrows between Lubec and Campobello Island, and eagles soar majestically overhead in the clear, salt-tinged air -- a photographer's and painter's paradise.

Marvel at the massive tides of twenty to twenty-five feet rush through the Narrows and surrounding bays.
Join Capt. Ralph & the Lorna Doone on a cruise by the OLD SOW -- the largest natural whirlpool in the western hempisphere -- one of five signiciant whirlpools worldwide. Situated just west of Deer Island, New Brunswick, Canada and northeast of Eastport, Maine, in the Western Passage of Passamaquoddy Bay, the OLD SOW forms in a huge area of facinating tidal turbulance. The OLD SOW and her 'piglets' wander around a bit when active, veiwed best on flood tide, just west and north of the southern tip of Deer Island, NB, Canada. During ebb tide, or outgoing tide, the OLD SOW can be seen further south and is less active. During high spring tides with strong winds, a larger funnel can be seen.
Indulge your passion for the unexpected! Tour the unmatched beauty of our craggy, rockbound coastline and sea teaming with wildlife as diverse as eagles, osprey, whales (finback, minke, humpback and Northern Right), seals, and porpoise.
Don't forget -- bring sunscreen, hat, warm clothing (even on a warm day, the sea air can be cooler), binoculars... Pack a camera, sunscreen, binoculars and video equipment. All weather decisions will be made the morning or afternoon of your scheduled charter. If the captain feels the weather conditions are unsafe, then we will gladly reschedule your trip.
