Historical Context: Navigating a safe passage through Casco Bay requires more than the avoidance of its multitude of islands. The greatest dangers are those hidden from view--the rocks and ledges covered by varying depths of water according to the state of the tide. Besides covering and uncovering rocky ledges and a shallow shore, unseen currents produced by the tide can put a vessel off course. To alert the navigator about the possibility of being taken unawares, the set (direction) of tidal currents in Casco Bay are indicated with arrows.
