I took the 3:30 pm "Mink" ferry to Isle au Haut as a way to see the islands off the coast of Stonington. The Mink and Miss Lizzie are ferries in the "Mail Boat" fleet, a non-profit that preserves transportation and a lifestyle on the Isle. My trip stopped at the Town Landing, then a point to the south in... More

You can't go wrong taking the 45 min ferry ride to Isle au Haut and wandering around the island for either an hour and returning or staying and taking the 5:00 ferry back to Stonington.

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.
