Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Boothbay Harbor, ME
Boothbay Harbor, the western arm of Booth Bay, is one of the best anchorages on the Maine coast and one of the most popular destinations for boaters and other coastal travelers. The harbor is spacious and well sheltered, and has good holding ground. The town of Boothbay Harbor is bustling with activity during peak summer months, but remains remarkably quiet in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall and downright sleepy in the wintertime. During July and August Boothbay Harbor is not the spot to steer to for a tranquil night on the hook, but if you are looking for the quintessential Maine resort community, you need look no further.
In addition to the shops lining the village, Boothbay Harbor offers plenty of attractions such as the newly restored Opera House, which hosts a year-round slate of performances. Just a short drive away, the Boothbay Botanical Gardens offers the most impressive outdoor display north of Boston and is a must-visit on every horticulturalist’s coastal tour.
Tourists and cruisers are not the only ones frequenting the waters around Boothbay Harbor – lobstermen love this fertile ground, and their multi-colored pots create quite a tapestry on the swells. Navigate through them carefully (and slowly) and you should have no troubles.
