We were told about the mailboat ferry by someone who grew up in Maine. What a great day we had. The mailboat ferry brings supplies, mail, people, golf carts, washing machines and anything else needed on the islands of Casco Bay that have no bridge access. There are two trips each day.10:00 am or 2:45 pm. The adult fare was $13.50 for seniors, a little more for others. It did get cool on the water so a jacket is recommended. We needed one even when the temperature was almost 90* in Portland. You bring your own food, drinks, or snacks. The captain gave short stories about each of the five islands we stopped at. The 31/2 hour ride got us back in time for lunch at one of the restaurants nearby. The garage at the ferry charges $3 an hour CASH.
