Join the Schoodic Ferry Saturday, August 12th for a front row seat to the Winter Harbor Lobster Boat Races! The Schoodic Ferry will put you front and center for one of downeast Maine’s most exciting events of the summer – lobster boat races! Lobster boats from all over the state come to compete to see whose boat is the fastest, racing from the Winter Harbor entrance buoys down the middle of the Bay to Frazier Point. It just doesn’t look or sound the same from shore. Depending upon weather conditions, the Schoodic Ferry may moor just outside the course or slowly cruise around so that you can have a front row view the races – without having to worry about the 100+ other boats also cruising around. Because this is not a regular ferry run, the Schoodic Ferry will leave from and return to the Schoodic Marine Center; we will not land in Bar Harbor. Estimated return to Winter Harbor after the last race is 11:30 a.m.. Because it is a special occasion, feel free to BYOB and coolers – and get ready to have a fun! $32.00/person or $27.00/person for Maine residents. No pets please, as backfiring lobster boats are often not a pleasant experience for our furry friends.
