We took a kayak tour in Casco Bay. Unfortunately, weather was terrible and we only checked the harbor area. And the views over the islands. This was my fave place in Portland.

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.
