Rent a bike at Brad's Bike Repair and Rental on Peak's Island and ask him to choose the best bike for you. The ride around the island was beautiful!
Riding in the Casco Bay ferry lines has become a pleasant summer event for my family and me. There is regular ferry service for commuters to the majority of the bigger islands, as well as scenic cruises that run during the warmer months until mid-fall. (The nice weather in Maine begins in early May and lasts until the beginning of... More
This review is for the mailboat run only. This was the only tour that our hotel had information about, so we thought it might be interesting. Wrong. There may have been commentary during the very long run (3 hours or so), but because the weather was so cold we stayed inside where the seats were hard and the windows dirty... More
The mailboat goes twice a day (in winter at least) at 10am and at 2.45pm from the Casco Bay Ferry Terminal to a number of islands, stopping to deliver the mail, unload freight and let passengers on and off.

In less than two hours you get a great overview of Casio bay's lands and a glimpse into the history and island lifestyle. Weather was perfect, birds were flying, lobster men were hauling. Just a great day in Maine.

We just wanted a water experience and it was wonderful to see Portland from the water, to see a big cruise ship that was docked... More
My cruise ship docked in Portland so I took the 10.00 am mailboat run. $15.50 for the three hour trip. Excellent commentary provided by the Captain. They also provide a nice map so you can see where you are going. Great way to see all the comings and goings of local people. We saw a bald eagle as well. Andrew
To be fair I think this probably is a decent attraction at a decent price however my husband and I decided on our anniversary to take one of the cruises since it was such beautiful weather. I went to the counter to purchase tickets and the women there pointed me towards the peaks island cruise. She said there was lots... More
