We took the ferry to Peaks Island and rented a golf cart. I recommend a two hour rental, even though an hour can get you around. The sights are amazing and had adventure stops for my teens. We absolutely loved it! Well worth the money!

We were in Portland on Memorial Day weekend and could not have asked for a better day to take a cruise in Casco bay. Very informative and relaxing, we thoroughly enjoyed it, and the shopping and restaurants are fabulous. What a great town to visit.

While I was working my boyfriend when adventuring in Casco Bay and it fulfilled his inner explorer in everyway. From landmasses to botanical anomalies; it was eye candy for those who've seen it all.

Took a 90 min trip around roughly 6 of the 135 islands off the coast. Guide was very knowledgable & friendly. Well worth $24

Casco Bay is awesome - I don't see how you can't give it five stars. I highly recommend taking a ferry around to the islands. It's so peaceful and beautiful.

Whether you look at the views from a boat, a walking trail, Old Port, or a restaurant, the views of Casco Bay are magnificent. Except in the fog, when it's all a blur, but it's still nice.

Leave from Portland and visit all of the islands in the bay, take a picnic and spend the whole day adventuring

if you're interested in Maritime history, Portland Harbor Museum is a small charming spot to visit. Check out Schooner Fare's Portland Town on youtube for local music.
