Transportation

Yes - You can get a bicycle from Mac Passano (http://www.downeast.com/node/5026). He rents them for free. Yes, free. This is a sophisticated operation--you will sign a release to get one--but he does this as a hobby. Some of the bikes are a little, well, tired, but free is a really nice price point.

If biking is not your thing, the Island Taxi is at 807-846-8687.

Reviews for Chebeague Island Boat Yard
Sheltered and Relaxing, 2016-09-11
Captain: , Boston (155)

I broke for CIBY while attempting to motorsail in heavy fog and big waves from Boothbay to Biddeford Pool. Calling up to ask for a mooring, the fellow told me to just grab any mooring and drop by in the morning. I go the sense that he wouldn't have minded had I just stayed the night and wandered on without paying. But in any case, I did go ashore, visiting the Niblic where they had good coffee and nice breakfast sandwiches. Staff were all very relaxed, and I got the sense that they'd do good (but not necessarily fast) work if I needed any.

I had a nice breakfast, charged various batteries, and had a nice shower before heading back on my way.

The boatyard is a bit out of the way, but would be a nice place to spend a day or two on vacation.

One important note: my Navionics chart marked the marina about 0.25MI north of it's actual location. Probably not too serious in good weather, but in fog I couldn't see the actual marina upon arrival, and had to navigate by Google Maps. Checking now, the ActiveCaptain coordinates look coorrect.

Recommend a stop here. Mooring $25. Paul and Carolyn were very personable, friendly, and helpful. The Niblic has great chowder and sandwiches. Nice island to bike around.

The Niblic (the boat yard store) has excellent coffee, muffins and sandwiches. The boat yard staff is laid back and friendly. It's our favorite place to get away for an overnight.

If you are feeling adventurous, try Calder's Clam Shack on North Road near the intersection with Fire House Road, a 1 1/2 mile walk.

We stayed on a week night early August. Arrived at noon and found available rental mooring for $20. There are bathrooms with showers. Office also contains the store (Niblic), post office, etc. everyone is very friendly, waves and were offered rides while walking around. Took Chebeague taxi over Calder's for seafood lunch and ice cream. Walked back stopping at the small grocery store for a few provisions. A bit of chop on a southerly breeze. Very relaxing way to start out a maine cruise coming from the South.
