To kick off our Provisioning Spotlight series, our Guest Experience Manager, Katherine Meservier, took an afternoon to visit one of our favorite provisioners, Harmon’s Floral Company. She interviewed Elaura about working with yacht clients - and learned they even put together a few arrangements for others that were inspired by past marina client orders. They love working closely with our clients, and even outfit the marina office with bouquets to brighten our day and showcase their skills.

Portland is Maine’s largest city and is a bustling commercial hub for shipping, ferry service, and convenient air travel. Located at the beginning of Casco Bay, which stretches east with many beautiful islands and protected coves, Portland is often considered the perfect base to start a cruise in Maine. Portland harbor was once protected by 19th century forts that remain today, and the historic Old Port has been converted into a first-class shopping, dining and residential district, all the while preserving the impeccably maintained Federal-style architecture and working waterfront. Just steps from the water, one can walk down cobblestone streets and experience the historic charm of this district. One will also find the area is filled with galleries, funky boutiques, stylish shops, a large variety of restaurants and lots of pubs and live entertainment that provide a vibrant night life. Portland is also home to several full service marinas, shipyards and many other marine related services.
For any vessels at 80'+ book in with us for 6 or more nights in the month of June, they will receive a rate of $6/ft. We haven't had a rate like this in June before and are so excited to pass it along!

Unfortuntaley we decided not to proceed with publishing the guide book this year due to COVID19. Normally we go to print with the book mid-May and COVID was in full force by then. We continue to work on our website to keep it updated and we look forward to a better 2021!
