Information for Cruise Ship Passengers

What You Should Know

Cruise ship passengers should be aware that there are two locations where ships dock in Portland. One is the Portland Ocean Terminal, located at the Maine State Pier, where the ferry docks. The other is the Ocean Gateway Terminal, located near Casco Bay Ferry Lines. It can be a little confusing to distinguish between the two different terminals so ask someone as you disembark to tell you which one you are at. Cruise ship days are noted on our booking system. We only pick up THE FIRST TOUR OF THE DAY in front of the cruise ship terminal. This tour then disembarks at 180 Commercial St. All subsequent tours begin and end at 180 Commercial St. Please check our Online Ticketing System to see exactly which terminal we will be at when your ship arrives and to book your tickets.
