Scituate Harbor

*Please call first for available times and location business hours.

Visiting Scituate would not be complete without seeing Scituate Harbor from the “other” side. Jump aboard one of the Harbor launches, EZ Rider or Cedar Point, and take a “Tag-a-long Tour” of one of the South Shore’s most storied and historic harbors.

Discover the Mill Wharf, now a restaurant but once the destination for sailing ships carrying wood and lumber for a growing area south of Boston during the 1700s. Pass the old U.S. Coast Guard station, now home to NOAA, the caretakers of Stellwagen Bank, a marine sanctuary just offshore where the largest population of remaining Right Whales spend much of the winter and spring. Right whales, they were called because they were the “right” whales to hunt during the whaling days of old New England.

Observe the many sail and power boats visiting Scituate from around the world. A major stopover for Canadians en route to the Caribbean and cruising folks who have made Scituate a destination for its shops, restaurants, and friendly townspeople. Pass by the Old Scituate Light, scene of the most daring encounter by the young Bates sisters who single-handedly impersonated a colonial regiment and turned back the British naval fleet from invasion of Scituate by sea.

A sight that must be seen is the Town Pier where the many fishing boats and the lobster fleet load, unload, and sell their catch. A spectacle in itself. After landing dockside, you’ll find yourself right there in the middle of some of the most interesting and varied shops and gift stores you’ll find anywhere, all aligned on one street for hours of exploration. Scituate Harbor is not just another Harbor… it’s another world. And we’ll leave our lighthouse on for you!
