The first time Portland Trails tried to hold the Casco Bay Sunset Cruise portion of its Discovery Trek Series the weather failed to cooperate.

This time around the weather looks great for the rescheduled Thursday event. 

Cruisers can join guest presenter Brian Marcaurelle, program director of the Maine Island Trail Association aboard one of the Casco Bay Lines ferries from 5:45 to 8 p.m. The cost is just $18 for Portland Trails members and $25 for nonmembers. Sign up here.

During the cruise you'll see the gorgeous sites of Casco Bay (one of them will likely be Fort Gorgeous) and learn a little more about the islands off the coast of Portland. If you're lucky, you'll also see something like this:

You can show up at the ferry terminal behind Flatbread Company before the cruise to see if there is space available, but the folks at Portland Trails would rather you register ahead of time.

Don't forget to bring a camera.
