Portland Sea Taxi offers service to islands


Sea Tow Portland/Midcoast in Maine launched a new service for its area called the Portland Sea Taxi.

Bruce White and Matt Wilder, who own the local Sea Tow franchise, are the owners and operators of Portland Sea Taxi, which is formally known as Presumpscot Water Taxi.

The men say they launched the business so that individuals, families and workers would have a new choice when they want to get to and from the islands of Casco Bay and Portland Harbor.

Portland Sea Taxi has two dedicated boats in use and provides year-round water taxi service. The Sea Taxi crew also performs ship launch services and short sightseeing trips, and provides support vessels for ships on sea trials.

Tourists who want to visit Peaks Island, play a round of golf on Chebeague Island or explore Fort Gorges can travel to these destinations on their own schedule by Sea Taxi.

“Taking a water taxi ride along the inlets and shores is a new experience for many people, and we are happy to be a part of that experience,” White said in a statement.
