An incredible, long stretch of the Atlantic to walk along. We have been here for 7 years and have found the ferry schedule convenient and the summer and fall absolutely beautiful.

We have been here few times. We've done one island and few islands altogether. It's very relaxing. Pack your wine/beer/drink & food and ENJOY! Rent a bicycle or a golf cart.. or you can just jog/walk. It's nice to take a car to the island as well, but I had more fun when I had a bicycle instead.

Take the ferry out to one or all of the islands. We chose to hang out on one of the islands for the afternoon. Lovely walks and peaceful beaches.

Before traveling to Portland, I had never thought of the coast as a series of small islands in a bay with lighthouses! So many lighthouses, I have discovered a new building to enjoy. The architecture and it's evolution were seen throughout the bay.

This is one of the best things we did here on vacation. Absolutely do a Casco Bay cruise and visit the most islands you can. Beautiful!

A walk around Peaks Island makes for a quiet, peaceful day. Great for young kids. Stop at any number of coves and pebble beaches for some fun splashing around in the summer.

We had a very nice cruise to Bailey Island. It takes most of the day, but it is a gorgeous way to see Casco Bay. Go ahead and have lunch at Cook's too, it is a very nice restaurant with a great view.
