Event Details



The Extraordinary Wildlife of Merrymeeting Bay Cruise


Merrymeeting Bay is a unique confluence of six Maine rivers; the Kennebec, Androscoggin, Cathance, Eastern, Abagadasset and the Muddy rivers all converging to form a truly rare ecosystem. Virtually untouched by time, the bay is one of the best places in the state to view bald eagles and migrating waterfowl.  The unique flora and abundant wildlife create stunning backdrops and mystical views so be sure to bring a camera.

Narration is provided by members of local environmental organizations who share their knowledge of the wildlife, ecological vitality and the challenges now facing this unique place.

 This cruise is approximately 3 hours long. 

The Merrymeeting's professionally trained crew provides fascinating narration and a safe, comfortable cruise.  Guests are welcome to bring aboard food and non-alcoholic beverages.  A cash bar with light snacks is available onboard.

Tickets are non-refundable, except in the event of a weather cancellation.  The Merrymeeting is a 56' motor vessel with a covered lower deck and uncovered upper deck.    Cruises run in light rain and other moderate weather conditions.  Cruises may be cancelled in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions or unmet minimum ticket sales, and cancellations are made by the Captain on the day of the cruise.  If the Museum cancels a cruise, you will have the opportunity to reschedule, or receive a refund. 

The temperature on the water can vary throughout the day.  Please come prepared with extra layers. Access to the boat requires negotiating a ramp down to the float.

This program made possible thanks to the sponsorship of the Merrymeeting Bay Trust.
