Peaks Island: Getting to the Island

Casco Bay Lines offers a ferry that will take you between Peaks and Portland. This is the easiest and cheapest way to get to the island. The Ferry runs nearly every hour year round, take your car across, or park in Portland and travel as a ferry passenger. If you are taking your car across, arrive at minimum 15 minutes early.

If you miss the ferry, no worries, private water taxis run 24/7. Be sure to check the ferry schedule, including when the car ferry runs.
