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.

Cisco Bay is littered with numerous islands and that makes it a picturesque place to gaze at, boat through etc. I love flying over it - unreal views.

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.
