Perhaps there is no better way to get up close and personal with Portland's timeless ties to the sea than a Casco Bay ferry ride. For decades, Casco Bay Lines has made such cherished excursions possible, both for visitors and locals alike, offering memorable sightseeing opportunities of Portland's main waterway. Casco Bay Lines serves as the transit ferry service for residents of six Casco Bay islands: Peaks, Little Diamond, Great Diamond, Cliff Island, Long Island and Chebeague islands. Many of these residents take the daily ferry commute to and from jobs in Portland. Thanks to this ferry service, visitors can also visit these scenic locations with their wind swept shorelines, quaint streets and shops. In addition, Casco Bay offers rides to many of the neighboring uninhabited islands which feature prime hiking and bird watching opportunities. Families often take advantage of such trips to explore tidal pools, wildlife and even biking on these rugged, primitive bay isles.
