About Discovery Wharf 

In the heart of Stonington harbor, Maine’s highest lobster landings port, fisheries come alive at 13 Atlantic Avenue at our on-site interpretive center called  Discovery Wharf. From local school groups to visitors near and far, we offer a get-your-hands-wet opportunity to engage with and learn about local fisheries and the Gulf of Maine marine ecosystem. Discovery Wharf is also a stop on the Downeast Fisheries Trail.

Hours: Closed for the winter. In the meantime, check out “Ask Leroy!”
