RRT’s MISSION: Private Luxury Adventure for up to 6 Passengers
RIVER RUN TOURS is for people that are looking for something the “Scheduled Tour Boats” do not offer. Many vacation destinations offer boat tours that are similar to riding on a bus with a tour guide on a microphone. That is fine for some but most would like alternatives. If you would prefer the premium value of a Private Charter then River Run Tours is for you.
What began in 2005 under the inspiration of Captain Ed Rice, continues today under new ownership of River Run Tours, Captain Gary Smith. “I am honored and privileged to continue Captain Ed’s Mission. He has set a new standard in the tour boat business that I have every intent of upholding.” Gary is a New Englander having resided along the coastline of New Hampshire, the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, and Nubble Point in York Beach, Maine. He is an avid outdoors-man with experience not only in power boating but also in sailing, kayaking, SCUBA, surfing, fishing, hunting, and hiking. “I’m a nutcase for the outdoors.”
Gary’s introduction to River Run Tours was discovered over the internet. “Prior to our tour, I was really excited to learn that River Run Tours incorporated the scenic landscape, natural wildlife, and history of the area. I am a history buff and great supporter of protecting and preserving our natural resources. During our tour, I asked Captain Ed dozens of questions. He was an exceptional host.” After experiencing a River Run Tour, Gary knew what he wanted to do as his career with the Department of Defense was coming to an end. “I was going to see if Captain Ed would consider expanding and allow to me to Captain under River Run Tours. The opportunity came sooner when I learned the boat and business were for sale.”
Gary is very much looking forward to continue to serve the many guests Captain Ed acquired over the years and those to come, making new friends, and continue the mission of offering a most memorable and enjoyable experience on a River Run Tour.
River Run Tours is a non-scheduled, appointment only custom service having affiliations with many other hospitality based services in Midcoast Maine. “If I don’t offer what you’re looking for, I promise to help you find it. I have connections to several Fishing Charter Operators, and many fine and unique restaurants and services.” River Run Tours is a member of Maine Association of Charterboat Captains (MACC), National Association of Charter Operators (NACO), Main Street Bath and many other local organizations.
