In order to get to the wedding venue - The Inn on Peaks Island - all guests must take a 15 minute ferry ride. All ferries depart from Casco Bay Lines located on Commercial Street in Portland, two blocks away from the Hampton Inn. The ferry runs very true to schedule and costs $8 for a roundtrip ferry ticket. Upon landing on Peaks Island, The Inn is about 100 yards up the road.
Please know that all guests must take the 3:15pm ferry in order to make it to the ceremony on time. Tickets cannot be purchased online and must be purchased in person. It is highly recommended that guests purchase their tickets on Thursday or Friday morning. If not, all guests are asked to arrive at Casco Bay Lines early enough to ensure tickets are purchased before the ferry departs.
All ferry tickets are roundtrip to Peaks Island and therefore a ticket is not needed for the ride back to Portland at the end of the evening. The ferries run every hour and the DJ will announce departing ferries from Peaks Island 15 minutes in advance. The reception will end with enough time for all guests to catch the 10:55pm ferry back to Portland.
You can also download the Parkopedia app to see what other parking options are available that day. If you are staying more than a few blocks away from Casco Bay Lines, we strongly encourage you to take a Lyft or an Uber to the ferry.
You are welcome to bring alcohol along for the ferry ride, as there are no open container laws on the water. Please just make sure you open and finish your beverages on the boat before being dropped off at Peaks Island.
