Tour Details

Take this scenic cruise of the Inner Bay past lovely Victorian cottages on the shorelines of Little and Great Diamond Island and Peaks Island. Catch a glimpse of island life as we travel to four different stops.

Little Diamond Island was known as 'Little Hog Island' during colonial times. It is part of the city of Portland and as of the 2000 census, the island had a year-round population of 5. At low tide, Little Diamond Island connects to Great Diamond via a semi-submerged sandbar.

Great Diamond Island is another island in Casco Bay with a year-round population of 77. The island is not easily accessible by motor vehicle and has a limited network of roads. The primary modes of transportation are golf carts and bicycles.

Like other Casco Bay islands, Long Island was originally inhabited by Native Americans until settlers arrived in the 1600's. Colonel Ezekiel Cushing purchased the island in 1732 and is credited with being the first westerner to settle and build a house on Long Island. Soon after, other settlers arrived to make a livelihood out of farming, fishing, and catching lobsters. During WWII, Long Island served as a fueling depot for the U.S. Navy. Supply stations and army buildings were constructed on the island and many of these buildings still stand along the shore of the island Once known as the Coney Island of Maine, and later an important WW II outpost, Peaks Island today is a neighborhood within the city of Portland. Home to artists, retirees, commuters of all sorts and a substantial summer population, Peaks Island boasts a small town feel with unparalleled ocean views and access.

Please note: Restroom facilities are available on board for your convenience.
