Description
A picturesque seaport, Boothbay Harbor retains the atmosphere of an old New England village. Fishing craft lie alongside wharves that follow the quaint, winding village streets. Yachtsmen and artists began vacationing in the area in the early 1900s. Word soon spread of the region's natural beauty, and Boothbay Harbor began the slow transition from shipping center to resort area.
The Boothbay Harbor region's waterfront offers visitors a glimpse into seafaring history and an array of nautical activities on the Maine coast. With a strong shipbuilding and fishing heritage, the harbor shelters a wide variety of boats.
River cruises, ocean cruises, whale watches, sailing and deep-sea fishing trips leave local piers daily and vary in length from 1 hour to an entire day. The Balmy Days II makes day trips to Monhegan Island late May to early October; phone (207) 633-2284 or (800) 298-2284.
In late June antique boats and a parade are part of the Windjammer Days celebration. The Fall Foliage Festival, featuring craft displays and train rides, is held early to mid-October.
