Very well managed and run operation! The boat was immaculate, fresh paint, clean decks, and plenty of seating options. Take this short tour to learn about the lobster fishing industry, get some sun on your face and wind in your hair. We saw some seals, lighthouses, sea birds, and took lots of great pictures. The tour is very well narrated... More

Took the two hour harbor cruise, explaining about how they catch lobster and talking about the lobster industry in Stonington. The captain was very knowledgeable and described in detail everything that we saw. Very laid back, showed us a lobster trap with a lobster in it (they throw it back), explained how the lobster boats work, and also showed us... More

When we travel to Isle au Haut, we always use Isle au Haut Boat Services. We LOVE the Miss Lizzie! The staff is always helpful and courteous, even when traveling with a mountain of luggage for a week's long stay.

My ten year old and I did the Seal Island puffin trip. We had a great time seeing the birds and watching the porpoises play in the boat's wake. The crew is friendly and knowledgeable. Learned a lot about Maine's sea birds. All in all a wonderful Sunday afternoon adventure.

Wish they would adjust the mailboat times later in the season. Would have loved to spend more time on the island.

Friendly staff, beautiful scenery - what's not to like? We enjoyed the fact that the number of people was limited and there were plenty of good seats to choose from - would do it again.

A little costly but had a wonderful day on Isle au Haut. I'm not a hiker or a biker but found walking/exploring, talking to locals, and eating at the "food truck" a fun day. Parking costs. Next time I will park in town and walk to the dock.

My husband and I had a great time on the Mail Boat Ride. The ocean breeze helped to cool us down on that very hot day. I didn't mind getting a little sea spray on me. My husband had so much fun taking pictures and pointing out lighthouses. The crew was friendly. Next time we're in Stonington, we'll take this... More
