Private Charters

Weddings, birthday parties, company outings, and all kinds of special events are always more fun on a boat! We can accommodate groups of 25 to 250 on a private cruise in Casco Bay or transportation to an island, with plenty of room for food and entertainment on the way.

Casco Bay Lines provides the boat and crew and, if you like, complete bar service; you book a caterer or bring your own food, and hire a band or DJ if you’d like to do a little dancing! See our list of caterers and entertainers who have made past charters memorable.

For a real Down East experience, combine a private charter with a Casco Bay Lines Lobster Bake on Peaks Island and get 4 hours for the price of 3! See our Lobster Bakes page for more information.
