Yes, this is the location of the Andre the Seal statue, but there is a lot more to do in this small, picturesque park than just look at the statue. Rockport, ME has one of the more scenic harbors, and I've seen a lot or...More

Once again our travel plans included a visit to Rockport Marine Park and the statue of Andre. He still has a great view of the harbor where he once romped.

I hadn’t thought about Andre the seal for many years until I saw his statue (life size?) in Rockport harbor. A very nice tribute to one of Rockport’s former summer resident.

The story of Andre the Seal would be of great interest to kids and adults. The statue, located at the marine park, is wonderfully done and is a nice touch to the local histroy of Rockport

The book about Andre is both interesting and touching. The statue is in his honor overlooking the harbor he loved.

The story of Andre the seal was made into a movie years ago. If you are not familiar with the story, it is worth learning about this beloved seal who, for about twenty years, swam every year from Boston Aquarium to summer in Rockport Harbor....More
