First chance offers both a whale watch and a lobster scenic cruise. The lobster scenic cruise is 1.5 hours making it ideal for little kiddos. The whale watch is another great option too, but is a bit longer (around 3.5-4 hours) To add to the attraction, they offer public parking (for a fee) and is located right behind the Pilot house restaurant - a local favorite. Cheapest and best seafood and lobster in town! A more throw-down environment where you’ll mingle with the locals of town.

For the novelty alone, this is a must. A historic tall ship that has been retrofitted into a floating bar and restaurant. Views are outstanding, as is the food. Creative and unique small plates, with a focus on fresh seafood.

If you want to experience town like the locals do, this is the spot for you! Dubbed the locals hangout, the pilot house is a really fun environment. They have live music frequently, and have some of the best bands in the area lined up for their summer schedule. This is my favorite place for fried fish and chips, always super fresh and reasonably priced.

Provisioning

Maine and Vine is right in Dock Square and recently under new ownership by our friend Lani. She is a native kennebunkport’er and breathing new life into the wine store! She often has wine tastings, is extremely knowledgeable, offers a wonderful selection, very fairly priced, and has stocked the store with other goodies. We definitely recommend going to her for your wine/cheese/microbrew beer needs.
