“My partner and I recently hosted a wedding out on Great Diamond Island, and Fogg’s Water Taxi was the lynchpin of the whole experience. While the ferry certainly provides reliable timing of guest transportation to and from the island, their reduced schedule in the shoulder season left us in a pinch as there were big gaps in service. We reached out to Fogg’s months in advance, and they were able to book us multiple private charter services on their 40 passengers vessels. Additionally, we had multiple last-minute requests by our guests for different times to/from Portland from the island, and Fogg’s accommodated us without blinking. Elaine and their entire staff were friendly, professional, informative, and most importantly PROMT. They even delivered late night pizzas to the island post-wedding just because they were nice! Thank you, FOGG’S!”

“Our weddng was on Casco Bay & my mom forgot the wedding dress. Luckily, we spend our time on the water in Maine and knew who to call. Within an hour Fogg’s water taxi was on the radio with our captain ready to pull alongside to deliver andsave the day. We even tipped extra with a fresh lobster roll. Thank you Fogg’s!”

“We had such a great time on the Beer, Wine, and Oysters cruise! They had unlimited drinks and oysters for our 2hr cruise around the bay. Great sights and met a really nice family that we chatted with for a while. If you’re hesitant for any reason, just book it! You will 100% enjoy your time. The Joseph S. Kennedy is a really cool boat with a great historical background.”
“Best way to island hop! While on vacation on PI, we decided to take a day trip Cheabegue. Since the ferry times didn’t align we decided to use a water taxi. Fogg’s was great! The online fare calculator made is super easy to figure out pricing and their customer service (phone agent both captains) were top notch. Skip the ferry and book with Fogg’s!”
“Called up after we missed the ferry to Peak’s and wanted to make it in time for lunch. The guys were able to find us a ride over and for five adults, it was definitely worth the price. Very friendly and professional with a well-seasoned captain! Will be back!”
“Incredible service and experience overall. Friendly staff, awesome live music, with clean facilities. 10/10”

The History of Fogg’s Water Taxi

At Fogg’s Water Taxi, we grew from the nautical passions of our sister company, Fogg’s Boatworks. In 2016, the Fogg’s Boatworks team started dipping our toes into the world of water taxis at the request of a water taxi company that couldn’t keep up with demand. After one summer helping out, we bought the water taxi company out and started Fogg’s Water Taxi with a small fleet of our own hand-crafted vessels.

We quickly evolved into one of the best water taxi services in the Portland area. Our fleet grew with the Casco Bay Cat in 2018, solidifying our presence in Casco Bay. In 2023, we welcomed the Joseph S. Kennedy, expanding and enhancing our Casco Bay charter and event charter services.
