Discovery Wharf to reopen



STONINGTON — The Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries will reopen its Marine Education Center later this month.

The Discovery Wharf in downtown Stonington will be open to the public starting June 22. The interpretive center will have a limited schedule and a new reservation system.

Discovery Wharf was closed due to the pandemic and the new booking system will let staff follow health guidelines and follow proper cleaning procedures between visitors.

Some of the attractions at the center include a marine touch tank, an interactive display wall and a virtual reality exhibit.

“We are looking forward to meeting visitors at our location on Stonington Harbor so we can continue to help people understand fishing and the seafood economy of eastern Maine,” said Executive Director Paul Anderson. 

The wharf will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservations can be made online.
