Owner description: Ship traffic here runs the gamut from lobster boats to oil tankers and cruise lines; also look for the many photogenic lighthouses.

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.

Take the 3 hour mail boat tour. Great value and variety of islands. We sat on deck and had great conversations with some of the other passengers. I do wish the volume on the narration was louder is was impossible to hear unless you sat right under the captain.

So many views, so little time. Whether looking at Casco Bay from the shore, one of the islands, ferry or boat - it is one of the most beautiful views in the world.

Don't miss a tour of the islands...just hop aboard the Casco Bay Lines Ferr from the Portland waterfront for the best value boat tour around.

I highly suggest using the Casco Bay Lines system to visit Peaks Island it's a great little island to walk to and it's the site of an old World War I military battery. It was definitely worth the visit to
