Casco bay is a place of great beauty and you can spend some quiet moments here simply watching the ships docking at the bay, the calm and peaceful waters and the sea gull hovering high above them. The cruise off the bay is an amazing way to relax and take in the beautiful natural scenery around you and explore some of the little islands that dot the ocean. Each island has restaurants that serve great food and every island is a different experience in itself. The cruise offers an amazing view of the city of Portland. The air is clean and clears your head. You cannot miss the beautiful whale murals. Enjoy the view of the busy Portland harbor as you relax on Casco bay.

The Casco Bay is everything coastal Maine should be. Luckily for me, my nephew lives right on it so the dog and I enjoy its virtues year-round. If you're into sailing, it's a slice of heaven

Casco Bay is just beautiful. Over 200 islands, some inhabited and some not. Take the 90 minute harbor cruise at the wharf and find out all about it. So tranquil and serene. For a larger view, go to the Observatory and climb to the top. You will be able to get great photos of 7 or more islands at one time.

Took the 9:30AM ferry to Peaks Island which only takes 15-20 minutes. Great ride and views along the way. We rented bikes on Peaks (little bike shop - take a left at the top of the hill after leaving the ferry) for 2 hours and enjoyed the perimeter road and all the views. It was so great and such a short ride, we went around the perimeter of the island twice. Had a couple of beers and appetizers on the deck of the Cockeyed Gull and still made the 12:45 return ferry to Portland. Peaks is well worth the visit.
