I remember Andre from a visit to Rockport Harbor many years ago. This statue brings back nice memories. More relevant to this review is that Rockport Harbor remains a beautiful place. Despite being located between Rockland and Camden, this small sibling of a town and harbor are more beautiful. You won't find much hustle-bustle here. Great place to sit on... More

sadly the statue has weathered and has a large crack in the face, however, if you have seen and loved the movie it is worth a visit. It would be nicer if they had had a picture of Andre and his history...(there is a picture in the 'harbor master's office' on the wall) -- it is without fanfare but perhaps... More

It's a statue in a small park with a few benches and a view of the small harbor. But, it's Andre the Seal! Stop if you're going past town. Pose with the statue. Enjoy the view. Don't get in the way of the locals. Move on.

This was a fun little treat to stumble upon while taking photos of the harbor. This statue was carved sometime in the mid 1970s I believe… and although he's had a little facelift he is still charming!

After seeing the movie countless times, we felt it was almost a spiritual adventure. Sit on the benches and watch fisherman unload their catches at the docks. Stop in the harbor master building and buy a postcard. Washrooms at harbor master building. A truck that sells food was parked there at lunchtime. Wonderful experience!

cute little park with Andre the Seal statue, nice views of the harbor, interesting historic features in the park, old furnaces being restored from the late 1800s. grab a coffee and sit in the park overlooking the small boats in the harbor, very quiet and relaxing.

I grew up in MAINE, and remember stories of Andre the seal. the movie is worth checking out also, before you go. That harbor is so pretty and so Maine. Then to get my photo with Andre,his statue is right at the landing, and he is the honary Harbormaster of Rockport Harbor... love it.

Read the story or view it on DVD of Andre the Seal as it is very moving and very appropriate for children. The statue is very nice and was actually unveiled by Andre himself...Hint: find out how. The statue is on the marina floor in Rockport Harbor where boats and kayaks can be launched. We kayaked out to Curtis Lighthouse.... More
