Ocean Point

Common Eider
Ocean Point lies at the end of Route 96 in East Boothbay. The point overlooks several islands and lighthouses. It is a place where sea ducks and seals frolic. In summer, Common Eiders, Common Loons, Black Guillemots, and Double-crested Cormorants are normally within view. There is a small walking path on the left that enables more exploration of the point. In winter, scoters, grebes, and occasional alcids join the resident eiders. Ocean Point has been a place to spot a rare King Eider in winter over the years, and it has produced more than its share of sightings for Rough-legged Hawks and Snowy Owls. Expect to share the point with tourists, due to the extraordinary scenery. Parking is limited and private property must be respected.

Directions: Follow Route 96 to the end. Though the point marks the end of the route, the streets around the west side of the point rejoin Route 96 in a loop. Park only where permitted.
