Interesting story but you could miss this & it won't ruin your trip. Glad I didn't go out of my way but the harbor was neat.

A Rockport icon in the marine park is a must for anyone who has read the book. Large enough for several children to perch on.

It is nice to have a statue of Andre so future generations can know the story of this seal. I was a little kid when he died/ went missing in 1986 and I remember being so sad about it. This statue is an early childhood memory so I am partial to it but I do recommend Rockport Harbor in general... More

The Arch landmark was ridiculously hard to find...This iconic symbol says "Camden" on one side and "Rockport" on the other side of this arch on the town's lines. This has been shown in many tv shows and movies. The seal statue is fun, as well, and both are worth a look-see.

Nice sculpture that has been damaged and repaired. It is a tribute to an actual seal that used to frequent the area.

The statue is a must see because it is located at a very quaint, small, non touristy harbour! We enjoyed taking pictures at this not very busy area.

Saw Andre and heard his story from a local. Took pictures for a friend. Beautiful harbor. Enjoyed reading about the limestone ovens in the park and their history.
