MEET FISHERMEN

MERRIL'S wharf

"The Desert" is where commercial fisherman Ian Mayo of Maine Fisheries will tell you what it's like to go to sea aboard a commercial vessel, and how important it is to take care of your ship and your gear. He is full of many incredible stories, so bring your questions. Traditionally, Ian will hang one of his nets using his company's crane so that visitors can see how it is used underway. 

Tour COASt guard vessels

 
Wright's Wharf

The Pirates and poachers never stood a chance! Executing operational missions from Maine, New Hampshire, and Northeastern New York, the Northern New England sector of the Coast Guards area of responsibility ranges over 5,000 miles of coastline and 11,000 square nautical miles of water. Bring the kids and come step on the U.S. Coast Guard vessel and learn how to stay safe on the ocean! Fun for all ages!

There you'll get a behind the scenes look at the lobster buy-station where lobsters are offloaded from returning vessels, you'll chat traps, and learn how lobstermen haul when under way.
