Chebeague Transportation Company
CTC offers a ferry service from Cousins Island to Chebeague Island many times throughout the day according to a published schedule.
RESERVATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED ON THE FERRY OR THE PARKING LOTS.
All passengers will be transported to/from Chebeague - even if multiple ferry trips are necessary.
The trip is approximately 15 minutes and travels between the Stone Wharf on Chebeague and the Cousins Island Wharf on Wharf Road, Cousins Island.
Using the Ferry Service
Ferry fares are paid while on the ferry trip. A number of fare categories exist, as do special fare policies. The first-time visitor to Chebeague should consult both the fare and ferry schedule when planning his/her trip. Cash, checks, and credit cards (MasterCard, VISA, Discover) are accepted on the ferry and at the parking lots.
The Islander is a 102-passenger 50-ton ferry vessel designed to meet the transportation needs of Chebeague. She has two decks and an area for personal freight. The upper deck is open mostly on summer weekend days.
Commercial freight should be transported by the CTC barge whenever possible.
New Ferry in 2019 - the Independence
CTC has hired Washburn and Doughty in East Boothbay Harbor to construct our new ferry - the Independence. The Independence will be delivered in 2019 and will be very similar (but slightly larger) than the Islander.
