Start Your Next Adventure with Captain Joe's Cruises
Take a family friendly cruise of the lower Saco River
Captain Joe will take you on a private two hour cruise of the Saco River. Passengers can look for seals, bald eagles, and leaping fish, or simply enjoy the serenity of the river as we cruise the river up to the Saco Dam, back down to Camp Ellis, and out into Saco Bay.
Our boat, the Ruby Belle, is designed so children can safely peer over the side into the water and she has an easy “step-down” into the boat from dockside. The river speeds are limited by law so cruisers can expect a quiet, stable, and safe experience.

About the Ruby Belle
Ranger Tugs are manufactured in Kent, Washington, and were designed for cruising the Pacific Northwest. Only recently have the Tugs come to Maine, and their unique look draws attention wherever they go.
Often referred to as Pocket Trawlers or Pocket Cruisers, every Ranger Tug is designed to be trailerable. Owners have been known to take their Tugs from lake to ocean and back, and you might even see one in a campground.
Ruby Belle is a 21' Ranger Tug with an inboard 30hp diesel engine. She won't go anywhere fast with a cruising speed of 3-5 knots, but she sips fuel making her one of the most environmentally friendly boats on the water. Her hull sits low in the water for a very stable and quiet ride.
Why the name Ruby Belle? Be sure to ask Captain Joe.
