Eastport: Birdwatching Cruise on the Lady Patricia

Sunday, May 28

1:30 - 4 pm

 

Boat Captain:  Butch Harris

Fee: $55

The Lady Patricia will transport you throughout Head Harbor Passage and the many Canadian islands therein. Amid spectacular scenery and plentiful wildlife, you’ll motor up close to the many islands where you may encounter shearwaters, storm-petrels, cormorants, Osprey, hawks, Bald Eagle, gulls, terns, and alcids. Seals, porpoises, herring weirs, salmon pens, and lighthouses will be part of the 2 1/2 hour tour. Bring your binoculars and camera. It’s a great trip on the water with lots of birding opportunities. A festival guide will be onboard to help out with sightings. Captain Butch Harris has explored these waters all of his life and will be an invaluable asset.

Please wear warm clothing and sturdy shoes. If the trip is canceled due to inclement weather, you will receive a full refund.

Where to start:  The vessel will depart from the main pier on Water Street in downtown Eastport. From Route 1, take Route 190 into Eastport. When 190 ends, turn left on Water Street. The pier is the next right. Parking, and portable toilet facilities, are available at the pier.  Depending on the tide, boarding the boat may require descending a steep ramp.
