Welcome to Down East Maine! My name is Capt. Winston Shaw, and I am
the owner of Sea Venture Custom Boat Tours located here in Bar Harbor.
I would like to invite you to join me aboard my vessel Reflection for
a close-up look at world famous Acadia National Park and Mount Desert
Simply put, Sea Venture Custom Boat Tours represent a highly personalized
and totally private alternative to the oft-times crowded and impersonal
boat trips more commonly encountered along the Maine Seacoast. When
you sign up for a relaxing boat tour with Sea Venture, departure times,
destinations and the many other all-important details of your trip are
all "Custom Designed" around your own personal interests and
Founded by myself in 1995, Sea Venture Custom Boat Tours are especially
popular with visitors to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park who hunger
for an authentic Down East experience. In fact, over the past 7 years,
hundreds of guests from 38 states and 8 foreign countries have found
their Sea Venture Custom Boat Tour to be the highlight of their entire
vacation! Additionally, complimentary reviews of my tours have appeared
in Forecast Magazine, Down East Magazine, Out & About, and Better
Homes & Gardens.
In order to ensure that my guests experience a highly enjoyable and
painstakingly personalized custom boat tour, all trips are limited to
private parties of no more than 6 passengers. Sign up for a Sea Venture
Custom Boat Tour and your party consists entirely of family and friends.
You are not forced to share the precious hours of your vacation with
people you don't even know.
Plus, as I have more than 25 years and 50,000 miles of boating experience
in the MDI area alone, you can rest assured that your captain and guide
is extraordinarily well qualified to show you a side of the lovely Mt.
Desert Island area that few visitors ever experience!
All trips depart and return at your convenience and last from one hour
to all day long. And with more than 30 trips to select from Sea Venture
Custom Boat Tours has something for every taste and budget.
When booking your trip you may choose from a wide variety of tour themes:
- Wildlife Observation
- Acadia National Park Cruises
- Lighthouse Cruises
- Island Exploration
- Nature & Scenic Photography
- Estate Cruises
- Historical Cruises
- Island Picnics

Highly personalized service, extensive local knowledge, the widest variety
of trip options to be found anywhere in Maine, and "Custom Quality"
at an affordable price are what Sea Venture Custom Boat Tours are all
about. And all of this comes with my personal guarantee that whichever
trip you select on the day of your cruise the pace will be relaxed,
the tone informal and friendly, and the experience memorable!
Remember; you can't say you've seen Maine until you've seen spectacular
Mt. Desert Island and you can't say you've seen Mt. Desert Island until
you've experienced a relaxing, educational, and highly enjoyable Sea
Venture Custom Boat Tour!
Thanks for your interest in my company & I look forward to introducing
you to a side of the lovely Mt. Desert Island area that most area visitors
never even realize exits!
