My name is Beth Poitras, I am the event director here Casablanca Cruises. Over the past 20 years as an event director I have helped plan, organize and hosted over 1000 events and take great pride in delivering a great experience to my guests. I look forward to meeting and planning a unique and special occasion with you.
As of spring 2013, we will open The Porthole Restaurant & Pub. Newly renovated this 1929 Portland landmark restuarant will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. We will be fully equipped to host company parties, fundraisers, reunions, holiday parties, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, meetings and lobster bakes to name a few events. Our new facility opens up to our deck on Custom House Wharf and overlooks beautiful Casco Bay.
Along with our new facility, we have The Casablanca cruise vessel, which can host up to 149 people. This 85-foot, two-deck harbor cruiser, outfitted with a full galley and well-stocked bar, is perfect to host ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, receptions, concert cruises, reunions, company outings as well as sunset cruises. Alternatively, you might opt for a daytime narrative cruise. Our Captain will narrate the cruise and point out the many beautiful islands and lighthouses of Casco Bay.
With access to all three venues, we can offer a unique occasion, one your guests will not soon forget. Imagine a beautiful three-hour sunset cruise and once docked a traditional New England lobster bake to be followed with a night of live, local entertainment.
I thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon!

We did not have a wedding at Harbour's Edge but a rehearsal dinner which was like a wedding. We had 90 people with everyone coming from all over the country. They loved it. It is so Maine. I can not say enough about what a great time we all had. The bride and groom were overjoyed with how the evening turned out. It gave everyone a relaxed atmosphere to talk and gather. The food was excellent. Beth Poitras and her staff could not have been better to deal with for such an important venue. She was always there for me. She answered every e-mail I sent promptly. She was right there the night of the event taking care of everything that we needed. She paid special attention to Bride and Groom and to us. Anything we asked for she provided. I didn't even have to bring any decorations. The room looked great. I am looking forward to having Harbour's Edge do other occasions for us in the future. Portland is such a great place for a wedding. Nancy and Tom Danylik

I love this venue. This venue is on a working waterfront and you see all the action. It has a raw kind of feel to it. Laid back and New charm all day long..
