About Discovery Wharf 

In the heart of Stonington harbor, Maine’s most active lobstering port, fisheries come alive at 13 Atlantic Avenue at our Discovery Wharf. From local school groups to visitors from afar and near, we offer a get-your-hands-wet opportunity to engage and learn about local fisheries and the Gulf of Maine marine ecosystem. Discovery Wharf is also a stop on the Downeast Fisheries Trail.

Winter Hours
Closed for the season. Discovery Wharf will reopen Memorial Day weekend.
