We finally took a ferry out to Peaks Island and it was a spectacular ride, and only 15 minutes to get there. It was wonderful to finally see the city from the ocean. We explored Peaks for two hours, walking around and having a small picnic on the beach with some snacks that we purchased. Although there were three restaurants right off the dock, our food allergies prevent us from eating fried food, pasta and sandwiches, which seemed to be the only options.
It was worth the visit and we will definitely be back to take another ferry, next time hopefully for a tour of the Bay.
