Full description
Discover a variety of nature as well as historical and modern man-made structures on a Boothbay Harbor Cruise. From raptors to ducks, or great blue herons to black guillemots, the list of bird sightings is long. Pass through Upper and Lower Hell Gates, with close to shore and open sea cruising. See up to 7 lighthouses, and historic Fort Popham – dating back to the colonial days. Let your Captain bring you up to date on the latest modern-day shipbuilding projects at Bath Iron Works. You might see terns at their nesting site on Pond Island in the spring and loons in the fall. Look up at the colorful changing leaves in September to see other migrating birds, and don’t forget to look down for seals and porpoises.
