Historic Maritime walking tours along the waterfronts of Bar Harbor or Boothbay Harbor.

Both tours are held several times per week. We have special tours scheduled for Windjammer Days in June in Boothbay Harbor. You may book below or call 207-380-3806.

Learn about the life and times of coastal Maine shore side villages from the 1600’s to the present as you walk in the footsteps of early sailors, fishermen and shipbuilders. The colorful maritime history will show you a side of the waterfront that you’ve never imagined, including mysteries of the deep!

The afternoon walks will cover local fisheries, maritime industries and shipbuilding. You’ll be shown how lobstering works, hear tales of rum-running and lighthouses, as well as learn about other waterfront industries/establishments. Mysterious shipwrecks, pirates & treasure, and sea serpents are also discussed.

The 90 minute walk is appropriate for all ages and these new, one-of-a-kind tours are by reservation only. Adult tickets are $17.50, children under 12 are $8 and children under 5 are free.
