Things To Do

Boothbay Harbor Maine - Things to Do

Harbour Towne Inn is the perfect place to stay while you explore more of the Maine Coast each day. You can walk to our Boothbay Harbor town docks to board a schooner for a day or evening sail, a lighthouse and lobster boat tour, a cruise to Monhegan Island or a whale watch. 

Here are just a few of the Boothbay Harbor and Mid Coast Maine attractions. There is so much to do here in Maine, you could stay and play all year long. Of course, you can also relax on our private dock at the Harbour Towne Inn and do nothing at all …just enjoy our waterfront view.
