Things To Do

  • Of all of the small islands in the area, we recommend taking a day trip to the scenic and enchanting Cabbage Island.
  • Whale watching is a must while you're in Maine, but it can be tricky to do on your own. Spend the afternoon with a professional from Cap'n Fish's Whale Watch at the helm!
  • Enjoy the beauty of the natural landscapes by taking a walk on one of Boothbay Region Land Trust's spectacular walking paths.
  • One of the most popular attractions in the area is a visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens—considered one of the best in the country! It's a short taxi ride from the marina.
