Casco Bay is filled with history and views. The islands and the old forts are so worth the visit. If you have a love of water, islands and history you have to visit Casco Bay.

Casco Bay had lots of boat including many sailboats. The vistas were great with the water, boats and pleasant weather.

One of the Great Bays of the Gulf of Maine. So many ways to explore! Ferries, bridges, kayak. Start at Portland in the south or at Bath in the North.

We had a great time sight seeing the landmarks and lighthouses as well as a sunset evening cruise. There are many places to eat, drink and take in the views. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Whether it is a cruise on the bay or having dinner at one of the many surrounding restaurants you will love the bay. Much nicer in the summer when it is warm

A boat tour of Casco Bay is a perfect way to experience the beauty and history of the Maine islands. Dress warmly. The breeze off the ocean is chilly.

Scenic Casco Bay is centered on Portland and is easily viewed via car, on foot at Portland's waterfront, or via one of several different tours.

The perfect low budget way to get a beautiful tour of Casco Bay and the Islands is to buy a ticket on the mailboat out of the ferry terminal right on Commercial Street. Sit outside if the weather is good near one of the speakers...More

if you're interested in Maritime history, Portland Harbor Museum is a small charming spot to visit. Check out Schooner Fare's Portland Town on youtube for local music.
