“Get out on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

The best way to see Casco Bay is out on the water. And with regular ferries to the islands as well as other tourist boats, it is easy and not too pricey.

Casco Bay lines offer several ways to take in the bay. Stop by an island and really learn about island living.

“Taking the Mail Boat Run on Casco Bay is a Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

It takes two and half hours and leaves about 2 PM. You will hear about a civil war fort, WWII fortifications, famous writers and actors who visited the area and you will have spectacular views of the Maine coastline!
