My daughter and I did both the mailboat run and the sunset tours. She was a little disappointed that it was the same route but I loved them both equally. The islands looked different from day to evening. We got off and ventured on one island, otherwise we stayed on the boat. Nice way to see the fisherman catching lobster and get a glimpse of island life. We were lucky to have a spectacular sunset and don't forget your wine and cheese!

We took a ride on the ferry to discover the islands of Casco Bay. No sun, a lot of fog and some rain but we kept smiling! We took full of pictures of the beautiful islands and of the bay. It was worth the small fee we paid for the trip!

The trip we took out to Peaks Island was fabulous! Easy 15 minute trip out and an enjoyable bike ride around the island. Definite must do. It was fun to celebrate the 4th out there!

5 3/4 hour tour back and forth to Bailey Island. Well worth the $25. You have 2 hours on the Island (which will give you time to eat at Cook's Lobster - other than that there is NOTHING to do on Island)

Enjoyable to see island life and how they get their supplies, if you take the mail boat. Beautiful scenery, friendly people.
