Preserving Island Life

We are located just 60 miles North of Portland, with plenty of parking and a convenient two-boat schedule. New Harbor is the perfect departure point for Monhegan Island. Come and experience our relaxed atmosphere and our professional, friendly crew.

A day trip consists of a 5-hour layover with a fun and informative Seal Watch on the return trip. For first time adventurers and life long devotees, a stay in one of the 6 overnight accommodations is a must!

Hardy Boat Cruises offers the shortest crossing distance to Monhegan Island. Approximate crossing time is 50 minutes one-way. A Seal Watch is included on the return trip to New Harbor. We are the most economical ferry service available to Monhegan Island providing our customers with parking for just $3 per day and free luggage. Because of our popularity, we strongly recommend that you call ahead for reservations.

Hardy Boat Cruises proudly supports the Monhegan Island Sustainable Community Association (MISCA). MISCA was founded in 2002 in an effort to provide affordable year-round housing. Hardy Boat Cruises has contributed over $14,500 to this endeavor. When you travel with Hardy Boat Cruises, you can do so with the knowledge that a portion of your ticket fare will be used to support this vital and on-going venture.
