Special Event Boat Tour Family Friendly

Cobscook Bay Boat Tour

with Eastport Windjammers

Eastport Windjammers and Maine Coast Heritage Trust are teaming up to offer a boat tour of Cobscook Bay and its many tidal inlets, quiet coves, and wildlife-rich islands. 

The tour departs from Eastport (the easternmost city in the United States!) with Captain Butch Harris aboard his comfortable 47-foot lobster-style boat. MCHT Steward and local resident Deirdre Whitehead will share her knowledge of the fascinating natural and human history of the Bay, along with the extensive conservation work that has been completed here. 

We’ll make note of fish weirs, alewife runs, rockweed harvesting, and other points of interest in this ecologically rich area and hear firsthand from Capt. Harris about scallop and urchin fishing in the Bay, as well as lobstering.

The name “Cobscook” is derived from the Maliseet-Passamaquoddy tribal word for “boiling tides.” With an average 18-foot tide, strong tides flow in and out of the Bay, nourishing one of the most productive, unspoiled, and species-rich marine ecosystems in the state.
