I’m a fan of the Maine State Ferry Service. That’s because the MSFS provides regular ferry runs from points along the mainland to the islands found up and down the Maine coastline. If you’re a landlubber like me and just want to get out on the water, you don’t need to charter a boat — you can just hop on a ferry and move from point A to point B the same way the locals do.
Yesterday morning Kish and I took a ride on the Bass Harbor to Frenchboro ferry. For a mere $10 a person, the ferry takes you away from the harbor, past islands and working lobster boats, to the tiny island town of Frenchboro. If you’re just along for the ride, like we were, it’s a pleasant two-hour trip. And if you see a porpoise, as we did, it’s an even better deal.
