The event

Join MCHT president and CEO Kate Stookey along with members of our stewardship and land protection staff for an evening cruise through Blue Hill Bay.

Departure: Northeast Harbor Town Dock, 40 Harbor Drive, Northeast Harbor

There is plenty of public parking available at the dock.

Plan to arrive 15-30 minutes early to allow for parking and check-in.

The boat and route

We’ll depart Northeast Harbor aboard The Asticou and tour past Great Gott, Little Gott, Black, and Little Black Islands and learn about MCHT conservation work in Blue Hill Bay.

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served onboard.

Boat capacity

Because of limited capacity on our smaller boat tours, please limit your RSVP to one couple.

The boat is accessed by a narrow ramp and float that can be steep at lower tides and present a challenge for those with mobility issues.

What to bring:

  • Warm extra layers (i.e. windbreaker, rain jacket, fleece)
  • Hat and sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Camera and binoculars
  • A water bottle (help us cut down on plastic!)

Bathroom facilities consist of a simple head onboard, accessed by a short set of steps.

Cancellation policy and weather:

If we have to cancel the tour due to foul weather in the forecast, we will notify you via email 24 hours in advance.

If your plans change, please notify us as soon as possible so we can fill the spot from our wait list. Thank you!
