“My husband and I and two boys took a tour out to Eagle Island yesterday. Wonderful experience all around! Pickup and dropoff in Freeport by L.L. Bean was great so we didn’t have to deal with parking by the marina. Peter and Christo were both so friendly and informative. The scenery was stunning, and the boat ride was enjoyed by all. We even got to see quite a few seals on the way back. Eagle Island itself is beautiful – you are surrounded by panoramic ocean views. You can tour Peary’s home, walk the beautiful property, and explore the shoreline. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Maine! Thank you Calendar Islands Tours!”

“My wife and I went on the Eagle Island tour on August 25. Captain Pete is a wealth of knowledge and knows the Casco Bay like no one else. We lucked out with awesome weather during our tour and the entire trip was great. The shuttle at LL Bean definitely makes for an easy experience as well. If you are in the area definitely book a tour with Calendar Islands Tours.”

“I cannot recommend them enough. We had a great ride out to Eagle island with our two young girls. Peter and Christo are fantastic guides and went the extra mile to chat with our oldest daughter about the bay, boat navigation systems, etc. We look forward to another tour when we are in Freeport again.”

“Peter and Christo are wonderful people with a wealth of knowledge about Casco Bay. The boat is classic and beautiful, comfortable, too. We went out on a true foggy Maine day and it was gorgeous. Saw many, many seals, terns, egrets, etc. I would encourage anyone interested in seeing a special piece of Maine to go! Thanks CI tours!”

“We have been to Eagle Island before, but this was our first time with Calendar Islands Tours. We were picked up in town by a shuttle that took us to the waterfront in South Freeport , and therefore didn’t have to worry about finding a parking space in the limited area of South Freeport.. We boarded the boat, and the crew was very knowledgeable. We saw seals, dolphins, and many birds before reaching Eagle Island. A very nice trip all around. Good job Calendar Islands Tours!”

“We loved the tour to Eagle Island. The crew was very knowledgeable of the sites we saw along the way, and the island itself was really cool.”

“Peter was a great host on his converted Lobstering turned Tour Boat! Comfy ride for all us aboard (apx. 15 adults) – the seats had cushions! Knowledgeable about the surrounding area and provided a bit of history & significant sights along the way to Eagle Island – we even got to see seals! Once there, we were able to leave our bags on board and enjoy the self-guided tour around the historic island! I had no idea that Admiral Peary, a Maine native, was the first to make it to the North Pole!
On the way back, we docked right at the local Lobster Shack and had a great lunch too!”

“Everything about our boat ride was so smooth from start to finish. Peter was so knowledgeable about Freeport and all the islands in the bay. My daughters loved the seals and wildlife. Peter knew the name of every bird and island we passed by, and he was even teaching our girls about boating. We loved every minute of it, highly recommend!!”

“Wonderful trip across beautiful Casco Bay to Eagle Island with Captain Peter on the Pamula B. Pickup to drop off was smooth and easy. Capt. Peter and his first mate were extremely knowledgable telling us about the many islands and the ecology of the bay as well as pointing out seals and shorebirds. Eagle Island, the home of Admiral Peary, is now a state park with a commanding view of Casco Bay. The audio self-tour and short movie were very informative and after viewing the house you have time for a short hike or for a relaxing snack on the beach or lawn while enjoying the spectacular view. All in all a super trip! Highly recommend.”

“Four years ago (prior to CIT opening for business) my family and I were lucky enough to have Captain Peter Milholland take us on an excursion to Eagle Island. The place is a gem for anyone interested in history, beauty and the local color. Peter’s knowledge of the area made the trip that much more enjoyable. So, when we learned Peter started this business, we knew the area is blessed with a great tour company with a GREAT Captain. We can’t wait to travel again Down East and will certainly book a return trip with ‘Captain Pete’!”
