Saco River Cruise

2022 Season

We are pleased to announce the schedule for our Historic Cruises presented by the Biddeford Historical Society for the summer of 2022.

Last year’s cruises were met with smiling faces and great support by the passengers who took part. Once again Captain Mike Massey will employ his noble vessel the Marion B., a beautiful 28 foot vessel.

The cruises will begin at the Maine State launch on the Pool Rd. (Rt. 9) in Biddeford. This site was identified on our earliest maps as Church Pt. as it is today on all navigational charts.

We will proceed up river to the urban area of Biddeford-Saco and then downstream and out to the open ocean at the mouth of the Saco River.

You will have the opportunity to take in the vibrant beauty of nature as we round the outer islands of Biddeford Pool. Wood Island Lighthouse will surely capture your interest in all her majesty.
