Stonington, ME

Stonington, ME

The working waterfront town of Stonington sits on the side of a hill sloping down to the harbor on the south shore of Deer Isle.

The inhabitants of Stonington once depended on granite quarries and sardine canneries but now derive their living mainly from lobster pounds and summer visitors.

Proclaimed the lobster capital of Maine (measured by shear poundage of lobster meat delivered to the world from this port), draggers, fishing smacks, yachts, an excursion boat, a ferry and fishers all make Stonington their home port, giving harbor and town an appealing blend of these diverse elements.
