Great way to see the islands around Portland. This crew is very informative and knowledgeable about the more that 200 islands in the Portland bay area. Great way to learn about the area.

I highly recommend a day trip to peaks island. One of the most beautiful places I’ve visited. Very quick and easy to get to by ferry and lots to do once you’re over there.

What could be better than sitting on the sunshine on the deck of a ship that's also delivering goods to beautiful islands? A friend suggested we do this, and it was three hours of bliss!
