We took the 10:30am boat from Port Clyde. After a leisurely boat ride we were there in one hour. We hiked the #1 trail on the north end of the island. Beautiful views of the coast. We cam back to Port on the #18 trail....More

I blew out my flip flop and was trying to figure out how my heal was going to continue cruising until I arrived home, but the kindness and determination of strangers helped me. Love Monhegan, the water was great.

This charming small island is a working artists' colony as well as a good place for hikes. In one day you can visit all the sights and take a hike or two. Better yet, stay over and view the sunrise and sunset. Three ferry services...More

We took the ferry from Boothbay Harbor to Monhegan Island. The ferry ride is 1 1/2 hours long each way. They give you about 3 1/2 hours there. It is a very laid back island. No paved streets it reminds me of what Block Island...More

Decided to take a quick trip over to Monhegan Island for a couple hrs. Got off boat and there were 3 trucks ready to take people up to their place to stay for the weekend. It was a fun trip with the family hiking trails....More

Monhegan retains the charm and remoteness of the way a small fishing village use to be. However, what was disturbing was allowing very loud music and partying at the Monhegan House well into the night. This was not the Monhegan experience most visitors ( and...More

How many ferries a day are there from Port Clyde to Monhegan and what are the times?
September 7, 2016|
Response from Lindsay G |
There are three ferries a day from Port Clyde during tourist season. 7, 10:30, and 3pm. After that it drops to only the 10:30 boat and then to once a week I think.
