We used to visit these islands in our own boat, but now we use the ferry. We get a senior discount and can ride the boat to all of the islands for the same fee. Go to Peaks and take a walk or bike around to see how the summer people live. Have a lobster roll. Go to Diamond Island and "dine" on the lawn with a fine glass of wine and excellent menu choices at Diamond Edge. There is a public boat dock there as well.
You will travel by the Fort in the middle of the Casco Bay and catch a view of Portland Light. Watch for small dolphin and seals swimming around the boats.
There is no better value in Portland, Maine than taking a ferry to the islands where people are happy to see visitors.
