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!

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

Interesting little statue at Rockport Harbor that families will enjoy viewing and then later reading the book about Andre.

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
