New England Boating TV: Portland, ME

In this special one-hour episode, co-hosts Parker Kelley and Tom Richardson visit the southern Maine city of Portland and the surrounding Casco Bay area. Along the way they check out Portland’s vibrant downtown area, with stops at the Shipyard Brewery, the Portland Observatory and the Portland Harbor Hotel.

But it’s Portland’s proximity to Casco Bay and its many islands that make this such a special destination, as Tom and Parker discover on side trips to the Dockside Grill in Falmouth and stunning Great Diamond Island, where they enjoy lunch at the Diamond’s Edge restaurant and take a tour of former Fort McKinley.

Later, the co-hosts spend some time on Peaks Island, where Parker takes a sea-kayak trip to Cushing Island’s White Head with Joe DuPont and a golf cart tour of the island. Also on tap is a striper fishing trip with local guide Harry Wright. It’s an action-packed, hour-long episode you don’t want to miss!
