one maine port ~ four dynamic destinations

With so many of Maine’s best features combined in one geographical region….great dining and shopping, nightlife, outdoor recreation, history, cultural attractions and stunning natural beauty…you’ll quickly see why we say this region of the State offers “Everything Maine”! Surrounded by water on three sides, jutting out into island studded Casco Bay, Portland and the surrounding communities of Kennebunkport and Freeport, offer some of the best views of the islands, historic forts and lighthouses in Maine. You can schedule a day of non-stop activities or kick back and relax. You’ll find everything all in close proximity of vibrant, historic Portland on Casco Bay.

Groundbreaking ceremonies for our new state-of-the-art passenger terminal “Ocean Gateway” were held on October 2005. Featuring 3,000 linear feet of deep water berthing and a 21,000 square foot “state of the art” terminal, will enable the largest of cruise ships to make Portland, Maine their regular port of choice. The new facilities, designed for both International Ferry and Cruise passengers, will have full screening capabilities for homeport and port of call operations and is expected to be completed by late fall 2007.

The new facility will be located just steps away from Portland’s dynamic downtown and within walking distance to the Old Port shopping district and uptown Historic and Art’s districts. This one port offers four dynamic destinations. In addition to historic Portland, 30 minutes south of Portland, passengers will enjoy Kennebunkport, a quintessential Maine village and summer home to two US presidents. Freeport with its factory outlets and boutiques is home to the world famous outdoor outfitter LL Bean and is just 20 minutes north of Portland. New Hampshire is home of the White Mountain National Forest & the Mount Washington Cog Railway - a unique and unforgettable experience of a lifetime.

We look forward to seeing you in Maine!
