Captain Butch Harris


Born and raised in Eastport, Captain Harris has been a seafaring man all his life - as a fisherman, boat builder, and boat captain. Butch has fished for lobsters, scallops, and urchins, has worked in the farmed salmon business, and has been taking fishing parties out to sea for decades. During the summer, he captains the Sylvina Beal, a three-master schooner, for bird watching, whale watching, and dinner cruises in the bay. Butch also has built both wooden and fiberglass boats, and recently completed a large two-masted schooner, the Haley Matthew, which he captains for 2-3 day cruises.
