Casco Bay Islands – Ferry Over for a Great Day Trip!

Several Delightful Ways to Enjoy a Lobster Lunch

Casco Bay Lines offers many opportunities to get out on the Bay with a variety of scenic cruises in Maine offering different destinations, durations, and departure times. Pack a lobster roll lunch; bring your camera, binoculars, and a sweater (as it can get chilly on the water.)  One of our favorite cruises is the “Mailboat Run.”  An integral part of the island communities, the Mailboat is a true working boat carrying passengers, mail and freight to the islands of Casco Bay—Little Diamond, Great Diamond, Long, Cliff and Chebeague. As the longest-operating service of its kind, this tour is a wonderful way to see the sights of the Bay on the Mailboat cruise.

Another delightful day involves Chebeague Island which is about 60 to 90 minutes round trip.  Have lunch at the very scenic and idyllic Chebeauge Island Inn, a 1920s hotel that has been thoughtfully restored to recapture its classic beauty.  Enjoy a Lobster Roll in style or a Lobster Cobb salad among many other treats on the menu.

Why we love it:  You can go out and explore Maine’s quieter islands.  You’re likely to see lobster boats and buoys along the way!
