Casco Bay Ferry routes

I've read on this forum that it can be a little cheaper to take once of the ferry's routinely scheduled runs vs. their scenic tours, and that they are essentially the same thing. I was curious if I was understanding this correctly since I was comparing the Long Island run (routine) to the Diamond Pass run (scenic). DP is 14.50 compared to LI at 10.40. How would they differ from one another? Thanks for everyone's help !

Sorry, I can't help you with that one. In lieu of the "mailboat" tour, we usually take the Cliff Island run. Seems like it's around $4 less.

Thanks for your reply, we are going to try it that way to Long Island, using the regular no-name ferry run vs. the scenic tour...going tonight =)

Be careful with Long Island - if the ferry is continuing on, you are expected to get off or pay the difference (I've heard the discussions between the crew and passengers in that situation - not sure how the crew knew who had only paid as far as Long).

Hi, I never followed up on this. Our Long Island route somehow turned into the "Sunset" cruise, which worked out fine and we paid Long Island fare and not the brand name fare for the "Sunset". It was a beautiful evening and a gorgeous soft pinky/purple sunset =) Highly recommend!
