CRUISE: Six Rivers of Merrymeeting Bay (Sunday)
The namesake of our cruise boat, Merrymeeting Bay is a unique confluence of six Maine rivers; the Kennebec, Androscoggin, Cathance, Eastern, Abagadasset and the Muddy River all converging to form a truly rare ecosystem. Pass through the swirling eddies of Chops Point into the virtually untouched serenity of the bay. This is one of the best places in the state to view bald eagles and migrating waterfowl. Narrators from local environmental organizations will share information about the unique flora and abundant wildlife of the bay. Be sure to bring a camera! The Merrymeeting's professionally trained crew provides fascinating narration and a safe, comfortable cruise. A snack bar with beer, wine, soft drinks and light snacks is onboard. Guests are welcome to bring aboard food and non-alcoholic beverages. 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 open seating on the 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.
