What a great adventure! We took the mail boat to Isle au Haut for a day of hiking and didn't know what to expect. Our captain was great; he pointed out interesting islands and facts along the way and as an added treat took us by a rock island on the way back to view dozens upon dozens of sunbathing... More

We took the "mail boat" to spend the day hiking on Isle au Haut. The boat was right on time and captain and crew were super. They gave a short speal about the history of the area on the way out and went by a ledge with seals on the way back. Even though it was principally a ferry the... More

Unfortunately, Captain Tracy was our untrained newly minted captain for the day out to Seal Island on the Mink. I’m not sure where to begin in describing the series of missteps he made during our day on the water, but I will say the predominant characteristic he conveyed was at the least unexplicable ignorance and at worst apathy. We left... More

Company was great to deal with and trip went very well. Skipper took lots of time around Seal Island. Also aboard was Bob Duchesne who is a renowned birder and naturalist. He was very giving of his expertise. We saw not only lots of puffins but also the famous red beaked tropicbird that visits this part of Maine every year.... More

We took the mailboat out to see the lighthouse on Isle au Haut. Doing a direct return on the next boat saved $17. Best view of the lighthouse is from the boat. It was on schedule and the crew was very helpful. Also parking on the street saved another $5.

Comfortable, efficient, scenic way to get to Isle Au Haut for a day trip. sitting on the upper deck if you can get one of the 11 seats is the best for views. be sure to bring a jacket as it gets quite breezy and nippy (even in late july) as the boat picks up speed. Be sure to ask... More

Having not had my phone call returned from Clive Farrin, who kept coming up on the internet as THE guy, we showed up for this lobster tour. Ok, we did haul a pot, it did have lobster, but I learned very little. Miss Lizzie holds 52 souls and was seaworthy, an upper deck for 11. No safety information was provided.... More

We took the ferry from Stonington to the Isle Au Haut. Our ride was smooth, staff was friendly in the ticket office and on the boat and we even enjoyed a stop to see a group of playful seals sunning themselves on a rock island. Highly recommend!

We rented a house on the water, kayaked in the bay, listened to the loons at sunset, collected shells on the beach and bought lobsters off the dock. The total Maine experience, right? Well here is one more activity to complete the Maine experience. Take the lobster boat trip with Isle au Haut boat serivces. You will learn all about... More
