Request a Private Event

Why Book a Private Event?

Maine Day Ventures will help make your time in Maine a memorable one!  We offer private parties for couples seeking exclusive experiences, corporate events, family celebrations, reunions, wedding parties, and any sort of special occasion. We work to custom create an experience for 2 private guests or with groups of all sizes from 2 to 50+.

Experiences available include:

Delicious Maine oysters shucked and served on an authentic lobster boat (1-6 guests) or another size vessel for larger parties. These are generally 2-hours in beautiful Casco Bay, enjoying the scenery and marine life. We may be able to accommodate your request on a sailing vessel.

A culinary walking tour showcasing restaurants in the Old Port, similar to our public tours or with your special requests. These may be 1-4 hours working within your time frame.

An art, culture and history walk, similar to our “walk through time” public tour, which also includes visits to Portland galleries. Or, we can simply offer our private historical walks which are generally 2 hours.

A culinary shopping tour with nibbles of foods and sips of wine along the way, visiting shops, and stores, a most enjoyable experience for the home chefs.

All requests will be addressed within 24 hours and availability will be determined ASAP.  Many opportunities are booked well in advance and we do sell out, so please reach out right away.

You will have the exclusive attention of a knowledgeable, local guide,  leaving us with a stronger sense of what it means to be from Maine, and our foods, beverages, local history, points of interest and more!
