Walking Food Tour of Boothbay Harbor

Enjoy a lively walk to a rotating selection of restaurants, a bakery, a gourmet shop, and a beautiful, historic inn overlooking the harbor while you taste your way through town!

You’ll learn about the history of Boothbay and its harbor, the lobstering and fishing industries so alive and well, the award-winning aquaculture and sustainability practices, and the culinary events to join throughout the season all on a beautiful, leisurely walk on both sides of the harbor.


This walking tour is about one mile and includes two moderate hills to walk up/down. Bring your appetite for knowledge and lunch as we guarantee to fill your mind and your stomach.

This is a great way to jump-start your visit to Boothbay as we will recommend all sorts of activities and dining to enjoy. The following, or something real close to this will be enjoyed in route and we promise you will be full:

  • Creative fruit smoothies
  • American Cheese Society Gold Medal winning cheese, from nearby Bath, and others to knock your socks off!
  • A visit to the local brewery to try Maine crafted beer and more!
  • A “classic” Lobster roll with native blueberry sodas. What Maine tour can be offered without lobster rolls? Or, perhaps an award-winning lobster chowder?
  • Local oysters prepared in different ways at a local favorite restaurant, some of the best oysters in the world, but don’t take our word for it.
  • Needham (the official Maine “treat” for dessert if you can find the room, or take it home with you.

Changes to the itinerary may vary, but there is always a nice selection to be enjoyed.
