In the summer months, Boothbay, Maine is known as the Boating Capital of the New England area. Don’t miss out on adding this great destination to a summer itinerary.
The town of Boothbay resides along the many bays and rivers of coastal Maine. There are plenty of islands to explore around the shores as well as whale, seal and puffin watching for those looking for up-close and personal wildlife encounters. Kayaking and paddleboarding are also a great way to see the inlets. If you find yourself on the East coast of Mill Point, check out the Boothbay Harbor footbridge.
