Cruising (Crushing On) the Islands of Casco Bay

It’s probably pretty clear by now, but Casco Bay and the island communities we serve have captured our hearts and minds. We count ourselves lucky to be able to spend our days here and we never grow tired of celebrating what makes each of these islands, and this area, so incredibly unique.

Realizing that we’re not the only ones who crush on the islands, we recently got to thinkin’… how could we come up with a way to show our love in an even BIGGER and BETTER way than we had before? And how could we make sure that everyone had the opportunity to join in?  And then, just like that, an idea was born.

For the next six weeks, Casco Bay Lines will be all islands, all the time. We’re launching a brand-new video featuring these beauties and, each week, we’ll be focusing in on an island, sharing fun facts, photos and blog posts to pay homage to these magnificent places and to highlight what makes each one unlike any other.

And that’s not all. We want you to share what it is that you love about the islands of Casco Bay by capturing it in a photo so we’re launching the Cruise the Islands of Casco Bay photo contest!

Here’s what you’ll need to know in order to participate:

  • We love it when you tag us in your Casco Bay adventures, so keep that up. We’re looking for your photos of any of the islands (not just the one we happen to be celebrating at the time), our ferries, or Casco Bay.
  • You can submit one photo per day once the contest begins using this form on our Facebook page or by tagging us in a photo on Facebook or Instagram and using #CruiseCascoBay.
  • At the end of each week during the contest we’ll randomly draw a winner and share their photo on our Facebook and Instagram pages – make sure to follow us to see if you’re a winner!

Each of our winners will take home a cool Casco Bay-themed prize pack full of goodies from Casco Bay Lines (a four-pack of cruise tickets!) and a bunch of our Casco Bay-loving friends including Sea Bags, Maine Maritime Museum, Andy’s Old Port Pub, Shipyard, Amtrak Downeaster, Cooks Lobster & Ale House, Portland Harbor Hotel/Inn at Diamond Cove, Flowfold and Old Port Magazine!

We’re kicking the festivities off on Saturday, August 4th with a whole week dedicated to Long Island. We can’t wait to share the love.
