Ferry Services between Monhegan Island & New Harbor

Travel 10 miles into the Gulf of Maine to visit the tranquility of Monhegan Island. Slow down your pace and enjoy the natural beauty this island has to offer. Monhegan is renowned for attracting interests of all types from birders to hikers and artists from around the world! The small island is year-round home to only a few dozen residents. There are no paved roads and no cars, but the walking trails will take you to views atop the highest cliffs in Maine. Whether you are visiting for the day, overnight, or an extended period you must use a boat to get there! When you begin your Monhegan ferry journey on the Hardy III, our friendly crew and the scenery of Muscongus Bay won’t disappoint! Be sure to be on the lookout for some wildlife along they way!

Our Monhegan ferry will depart from the working waterfront of New Harbor where you may see lobstermen unloading their catch. As we pass by the region’s islands, you might see bald eagles or harbor porpoises foraging. Upon our return trip we may pass by some rocks where we spend a few minutes watching for seals sunbathing or splashing in the water.

Our passenger only cruises depart New Harbor and Monhegan Island twice daily in the peak season. This allows for “daytrippers” to spend about 5 hours exploring the island. Take a look at our Monhegan Island ferry schedule below to find the right to plan your trip to this beautiful place!

All travelers must purchase TWO one-way tickets to complete your round trip: Once you add your first one-way ferry to Monhegan Island trip with the correct time and date to your cart, select “Keep Shopping” in the top right corner to add your return trip time and date to the cart! If you wish to book another cruise type like our Puffin Cruise you may also add that at the same time! Then you may proceed to checkout. Daytrippers must book the 9:00am New Harbor to Monhegan AND 3:15pm Monhegan to New Harbor ferries.
