We stop to feed bald eagles that fly out to our boat for fish. At the Islands, the boat slows as we go around and the different species of birds are pointed out to you. On the way to the wharf, Donelda will tell you all about her life in the lobster fishery. Take the trip that will give you memories to treasure!
