From Kennebunkport I would allow about 1.5 hours, depending on traffic.

Hate to disagree with socfan, but on a Saturday, I'd give it closer to 2:00 hours -- especially if you have to be there by a specific time.... Hard to know how long it may take to get through the traditional bottkeneck at Wiscasset.... Would definitely take I-95 instead of Rt 1.... then pick up I-295 to Exit 31 in Topsham, then follow signs for Coastal Connector to get to Rt 1... much quicker than staying on Rt 1 all the way from Kennebunkport or working your way through traffic in Brunswick....

Thanks guys.

MOTG would you advise this route for the Friday 9th too ?

We are attending a Wedding on Squirrel Island [on the Sat.] so trying to guess which ferry we will be on.

I appreciate your help.

Hi Soxfan,

Sorry but am not sure which route to use after reading reply by MOTG ,[ but that was for a Sat. and we are travelling a Fri].

Thank you both for your guidance, much appreciated.

MOTG's route would be fine either on Fri. or Sat. I honestly don't think you'll have many traffic problems. I consider that it is a Friday in the morning after Labor Day and before foliage season, so the traffic shouldn't be bad.

Personally, the route I would take would be I-95 to I-295 to Brunswick and then Rt. 1. I never run into too much traffic in Brunswick. But for distance and ease of travel it's really 6 of one and half dozen of the other with MOTG's recommendation.
