Portland Harbor/Casco Bay

Portland Harbor/Casco Bay Professional Review and Guide

"An enjoyable introduction to the multitude of paddling opportunities in Casco Bay. An excursion to historic Fort Gorges from the Eastern Promenade is a wonderful introduction to the many paddling opportunities within Casco Bay.

The sweeping views overlooking the bay from the Eastern Prom allow you to sight your destination before launching, and the trip plies relatively protected waters, avoiding the major shipping lanes within Portland Harbor. Once at the fort, there are endless nooks and crannies to explore (with care) and excellent views of the city and the entire bay from the fort’s third-tier rampart."

Beautiful body of water, with views of Portland and surrounding islands. These islands protect the harbor and bay from coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
