Eagle Island Tours

Eagle Island, the former summer home of Admiral Robert E. Peary and his family, is a Maine State Park and Registered National Historic Landmark!

Our tour offers a glimpse into the fascinating life of Admiral Robert E. Peary, known for his extensive explorations to the North Pole. Our tour begins in the working harbor of South Freeport, Maine. We’ll wind our way through the beautiful islands of Casco Bay, past seals, lobster buoys, and view the lobstermen as they haul traps in Broad Sound. Our destination, Eagle Island is a water access only State Park, and a must see for anyone who enjoys coastal Maine. Time: 3.5 hours, plus 15 minute shuttle each way from downtown Freeport.
