The coastal town of Boothbay Harbor, Maine is a perfect destination for a reprieve from hustle of every day.

A 1,000-foot long footbridge connects the east and west sides of the Harbor, allowing easy access for visitors to enjoy a plethora of fun activities. You will be captivated by the quiet coves, rocky shores, and island lighthouses and by the warmth and friendliness of the locals, turning strangers into friends. Read on to learn about things to do in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Things to do in Boothbay Harbor
Boothbay Harbor serves as a great place to stay during your Maine vacation as you travel along the Maine Coast. One scenic drive from Boothbay Harbor is out to Ocean Point, to see the sunrise and sunset - drive the Ocean Point loop, bring a picnic to savor on the rocks and enjoy the passing sailboats and views of lighthouses.

Boat Tours
Boothbay Harbor has been referred to as the Boating Capital of New England. With over 25 daily boat excursions leaving right from the bustling harbor, there is an adventure waiting for travellers of all ages! Harbor tours are a great way to explore the area and see nearby islands, like Burnt Island and further out to sea Monhegan Island. There are also many excursions that offer up close and personal encounters with Maine wildlife like puffins, seals and even whales! Enjoy a romantic sunset schooner or speeding windjammer ride led by captains who have sailed all over the world. Visitors can also check out local boat yards to see the tradition of world-class boat building that is still alive today.

Boothbay Harbor is recognized for having some of the best sea kayaking in Maine. With water ranging from open seas to more calm and protected rivers and inlets, there are plenty of opportunities for kayakers of all ages and skill levels. You can bring your own kayak or get a rental at one of the many nearby shops. These rental shops also offer guided tours of the area, for kayakers to explore nearby islands or just paddle around the harbor at their leisure.

Monhegan Island
If you are staying in Boothbay Harbor and have some extra time, a trip to nearby Monhegan Island may be worth your while. Monhegan is a small rocky island approximately ten miles off the coast of Boothbay Harbor, accessible by ferry. With no paved roads, cars or streetlights and limited shops and inns, Monhegan is a unique escape from bustling towns. The wooded Island is blessed with 17 miles of beautiful walking trails for any nature-lover to enjoy; but paths can be rough and rocky so remember to wear sensible shoes and consult local trail maps before setting off. The Lighthouse on Monhegan was built in 1824 and is still actively shining. Views from the Lighthouse site are incredible, as one can see the entire village, harbor, mainland and nearby islands. The former lighthouse keeper's house is now a museum focusing on the history and culture of the island.

Nature Walks and Hiking Trails
Boothbay itself is also home to over a dozen stunning nature trails. The Boothbay Region Land Trust preserves over 20 miles of hiking trails for visitors to enjoy year-round. Trails range from easy to challenging and are suitable for visitors of all ages. Trek through scenic meadowlands, forests, wetlands and rocky coastline that all make up beautiful Boothbay - you may even encounter some real Maine wildlife! Barrett Park on Linekin Bay is great for swimming or picnicking and has a playground for kids.

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens

If seafood is not your thing, don't worry - restaurants serve up a variety of other delicious food sure to please any appetite.
