Zip Along Casco Bay a Foot Above the Water With a Hovercraft Tour
How would you like to zip along Casco Bay floating ABOVE the water?
Captain Joe, born and raised in Maine, owned DownEast Duck Adventures for 15 years. I have been on that duck boat at least a dozen times and Captain Joe is fantastic.
Captain Joe has been on or near the water his whole life and now he's got his hands on a hovercraft. More specifically the Explorer 24 hovercraft!
The best part about Captain Joe's coolest new toy is that YOU can do an hour-long hover boat tour and learn about the history and beauty of Maine with Hover Maine.
The Explorer 24 hovercraft can go up to 32 mph and flies over a foot off of any surface. That is SO cool! You would think it's super loud, but the large diameter propeller cuts the noise far below common hovercraft, comparable to a jet boat.
The brakes, controlled by the operator reduces the pressure of the forward two compartments. That lets you slow down, stop or turn smoothly!
The passenger cabin is completely enclosed with fresh air flow through the cabin. That means this is a rain or shine tour! And this year, there's been a lot in the rain. It can seat 10-12 people and what a crazy way to see Maine’s beautiful land and waterscapes.
This is SO COOL! Who's in?
