My sister and I grew up watching Andre perform in Rockport Harbor. After he passed this became an annual stop. We have pictures of my sister and I at the statue throughout the years. In addition to visiting the statue the view from Rockport Harbor is beautiful and much quieter than Camden or Rockland Harbor. Nice place for a picnic

Every year I find my way to the Rockport harbor and visit my "friend" Andre. I have more than a dozen pictures of Andre with my children (at different ages), other family members and friends; as we pause to reflect on Andre's life and the Coast of Maine!

A small park with a great view. The park has a great view of the quiet harbor activity and a panoramaic view out to the sea can be seen as well. There is room to park and places to sit. Telling the Story of Andre near the statue is a cool spot for story telling. And besides the granite is... More

OK it is only a statue and it is not in the most buzzing place in Maine. But it is THE ANDRE THE SEAL. Well worth stopping by and taking few pictures! The setting is really nice, and the statue is very lifelike. As the previous review said, it is just a statue, but I drove miles and miles to... More

The wife and I would sometimes go here to relax after a day of hard work and just sit on the bench watching the eagles fly about or watch the people fishing off the docks. What a finish to a tough day and always made the day worth living...Rockport citizens are so lucky to have such a wonderful place to... More

Andre was a seal who came to the Rockport harbor all the time and became well known to the locals. His statue is in the harbor.

The Harbor itself is beautiful and Andre just adds to the appeal. A wonderful place to just sit and watch the boats, whether sailing or motor, come and go. A great people watching port.

You need to stop by at the Rockport Harbor Marina and see it. I suggest to watch the movie first so your kids will have the full experience
