Tour Information for Cruise Ship Passengers

Portland Maine Cruise Ship Passenger Information on Tours

About Our Fire Truck Tours

Our Portland Maine tours are perfect for cruise ship passengers who want to see the most of Portland Maine in a short amount of time. All of our tours are narrated by our talented and very knowledgeable Portland Maine tour guides.

We do have a limited capacity on our Vintage Fire Truck tours so make sure that you book your tour early enough in advance because we do sell out quickly.

We also make sure that all cruise ship passengers who take our tours will make it back to their cruise ship at the end of the day. Please make sure you let our tour guide know in advance that you are a cruise ship passenger. Our fire engine is covered and it’s only 4 easy steps to get onto the truck. Please visit the home page to see a quick video of how to get on and off the truck safely.

You can book your tour tickets online.

How to Find Us from the Terminal

We love cruise ship passengers here at Portland Fire Engine Co. Tours!

It is a beautiful 5-10 minute walk down the waterfront from the Portland Ocean Terminal and a 10-15 minute walk from the Ocean Gateway Terminal.

Tours begin at 180 Commercial St.  It is easy to find us just look for the blue wave fence and we will pull in directly in front here at this tour bus loading zone.  Sometimes traffic can hold us up for a few minutes so please be patient.

Cruise ship passengers should be aware that there are two locations where ships dock in Portland Maine. One is the Portland Ocean Terminal, located at the Maine State Pier, where the ferrys dock. The other location is the Ocean Gateway Terminal, located near the Visitors Center.

It can be a little confusing to distinguish between the two different terminals so please ask someone as you disembark to tell you which one you are at.
