Things to Do While Island Hopping Casco Bay Islands in Portland, Maine
This goes without saying but Maine is a remarkable place. We have a little bit of everything, from our mountain peaks to our rocky shores. There are so many nooks and crannies to explore in this state and the more I see, the more I fall in love.
Islands are sprinkled across our southern coast and create postcard-worthy getaways and day trips. According to Explore Maine, there are more than 4,600 islands off the coast of Maine!! That is an absolutely insane number.
Among those islands are those accessible by Casco Bay Ferry Lines, which one ticket purchased will grant you a roundtrip experience around Casco Bay that you can use at your leisure. You buy the ticket, get to the island, and you can take whatever ferry ride back you want to hop on! That gives you complete liberty to spend as much time on the islands as you please, even for overnight visits or week stays.
Whether you’re going to Peaks Island to eat a lobster roll on the shore for a day trip filled with history or you’re spending a week on Long Island basking in the sun at South Beach, our islands scattered through the bay have so much to offer.
Beautiful walks along the coast, scenic waters to kayak through, fresh seafood right on the water, and a relaxing and picturesque boat ride to make it even better.
