The story about Andre the seal is true and a wonderful one. By the time we moved to Rockport, Andre was in seal heaven but the stories continue among the locals, including the family of the children who were "raised" with Andre (now adults of course). Make sure to read the adult and children's story about Andre (available in local... More

We visited the stone statue of Andre the seal while staying in Rockport recently. We were saddened to see that the statue had been damaged and the repair was quite obvious. We enjoyed sitting and watching the sailboats in the harbor at the Marine Park.

Read the cute children's book about Andre the Seal, and maybe even watch the movie. That is why we made a point to stop here to see the statue as we were leaving Rockland and headed to Stonington to catch the mailboat to Isle Au Haut. The Andre status is in a lovely area overlooking the little marina. After reading... More

Nice little statue in Rockport Marine park. Unfortunately it is cracked, but is a definite addition to the Rockport Marine Park.

Quite disappointing as the nose was broken off over 1 year ago and was poorly repaired. The statue is just sitting in the middle of nowhere. The port itself was a let down. You are far better off to go about 4 miles down the road to the Camden Port , which often has a live harbor seal that comes... More

At harborside, statue of beloved seal Andre, the main character in a children's book by Lew Dietz with photos by talented Jim Moore, 1960's. Consider reading this book or showing movie to your young kids before visiting.

Take a moment to learn the story of this highly intelligent seal and how he loved his Maine family. Visit the statue to understand how sweet he really was!

Andre is in a beautiful, peaceful setting. We could have stayed for hours!!! Lots of places to sit and look out at the ocean, we love the ocean and so glad we could make the trip!

We love Rockport Harbor, and are thankful that we live close enough to drive down and visit whenever we want. The harbor is beautiful, and the story of Andre the seal is sweet. I recommend watching the movie before you come on vacation, and it will make your visit even more memorable

The statue itself is unimposing, but the history behind it is remarkable. The harbor which frames this attraction is picturesque. Bring your camera - sorry, smart phone!
