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

This is a nice, scenic little harbor. You can sit and watch the boats while enjoying a picnic lunch. There are harbor cruises that you can take if you have the time - wish I had planned better because it would have been a great day for a boat ride! Before you go, be sure to watch the movie "Andre"!

Good place to see a Maine harbor and of course if you know about Andre it is even more fun. Walk around the harbor and enjoy it. There are some ruins of limestone kilns there too that are interesting.

On this January day, the sea water had frozen but was now looking like crackle glass! It was cloudy and windy but still very beautiful and quaint this January day!

Quaint harbor side park with great views, picnic area and historic kiln. The seal statue is a lot more meaningful if you've read the book.
