Enjoy the beautiful waters and scenery of Bristol with our ferry services between New Harbor and Monhegan Island!
This fall coastal cruise is offered at the end of August through October. A wonderful time to visit Maine as the tourist crowds calm down but we still have warm days and lots of sights to enjoy. Even if it’s a cooler crisp day, you can warm up with some famous Monhegan coffee or other hot drinks available on board. This is a slower pace cruise where the captain and crew narrate, enhancing your experience with their local knowledge and even offer some one on one time!
This cruise ventures up into Muscongus Bay to give you a glimpse at some of the over 70 islands of the region. You will journey around the undeveloped islands north of New Harbor. Old fish docks and fish houses still remain and the old village of Loudsville can be seen. Herons, osprey, eagles and other wildlife are often seen quietly fishing along the serene shorelines. The trees are starting to change color and mix with the dark green hue of the spruce trees.
We travel past the birthplace of a famous Native American named Samoset, the summer cottage of two beloved children’s authors, sneak a peek at Franklin Island Lighthouse, and find out what a killick stone is used for! The stars of the show are found on Webber’s Dry Ledge, where we hope to find some frolicking harbor seals!
This is a wonderful trip not to be missed. Come and begin a family tradition of your own.
