How to Register

Fill out and submit the Registration Form. When we receive your form, we will send you a PayPal invoice. Your registration is complete when we have confirmed receipt of your payment.

Lodging at 8th Maine

Rooms at 8th Maine are rustic, with shared bathrooms. There is a large dining room and kitchen on the lower level for guests to share. Coffee is provided in the mornings, and you may prepare your own breakfast - or walk over to Lisa's Peaks Cafe, just up the hill from the ferry landing, for pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and island news. Hannigan's Island Market sells groceries and beer, wine, and spirits.

There are some rooms that can accommodate more than 2 guests. If you are attending the Festival with a group of 3 and would like to room together, we may be able to arrange that at a discount of $60 per person for the 2-night stay.

Getting yourself and your kayak to Peaks Island

See our Info page for details and links to Casco Bay Lines Ferry to Peaks Island, Portland Parking, and Shipping your Kayak. Please note that you cannot make reservations for the ferry for passengers or vehicles; it is first come, first served.

Kayak Rental

Maine Island Kayak Co. has expedition-grade Nigel Dennis Kayaks and Valley boats available for rent. The cost is $75 for the entire weekend.


Please bring your own paddle!
