The Schoodic Ferry welcomes passengers, their bicycles, and their leashed pets aboard. While we do charge for passengers, bicycles and leashed pets ride free! Customers planning to bring bicycles on the Schoodic Ferry should reserve space for each bicycle, as bicycle capacity is slightly less than passenger capacity.

Proof of residency is required to purchase Maine Resident tickets. Maine driver’s licenses, utilities bills, tax bills, and current pay stubs from Maine-based companies that match an individual’s government-issued photo ID are all acceptable.
