Owner description: Ship traffic here runs the gamut from lobster boats to oil tankers and cruise lines; also look for the many photogenic lighthouses.

We took both the Sunset Lighthouse Cruse and the Mail Boat run during a 4 day stay. We particularly enjoyed the mailboat and seeing a real working boat serving the islanders.

Be sure to save a few hours for a ferry ride out into the bay. My favorite is the 5 am sunrise trip. It stops at several islands and the beauty and quiet of the early morning is very special. The coast of Maine is a unique and wonderful area that should not be missed.

We liked the Casco Bay so much we had our wedding reception on the ferry boat here. Beautiful to tour the islands, see a bit of Maine and have some fun! Highly recommend doing the ferry boat rides whenever you're in town.
