Saturday, November 28, 2009: Jay Piscopo and the Capt'n Eli crew took to the high seas to welcome Santa to Portland, Maine.

On this blustery Saturday, kids of all ages boarded a Casco Bay Lines ferry for a scenic tour of Portland harbor while reading The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli comic books and enjoying refreshing Maine-made Capt'n Eli's Soda and snacks from The Inn on Peaks Island.

Capt'n Eli author/illustrator Jay Piscopo led the kids in welcoming Santa aboard the ferry and kicking of the start of a peaceful holiday season.
