Start your Maine tour and Damariscotta experience with a trip back in time to the 1700’s. Learn about the seafood harvesting practices of our earliest settlers and walk the same ground they did. Next, you’ll have a brief history of fishing and seafood connections in Damariscotta over the years, ending with your choice of a tasting or boat cruise.
Each guest will be able to choose the appetizer of their choice as long as you all are at the same restaurant. This is a great opportunity to each order something different and share!
Fishing will certainly be discussed on your Seafood Discovery Tour. Oysters, lobster, alewives, scallops, mussels, striped bass, urchins, etc. might be some of the seafood subjects.
Shipbuilding and its related productions will also be touched on. It was a very important waterfront industry in Damariscotta, and ships were certainly needed for offshore fishing and trade. Other aspects discussed could be seaweed, mills, ice harvesting, early tourism & steamboats, etc.
Your TeleTour price includes the one appetizer or boat trip per person, tax and tip – see choices below. By clicking the “Book” button, you will see more information about each venue, the prices, and dates. Additional items and beverages may be purchased on your own.
