“What a wonderful place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

The wife and I would sometimes go here to relax after a day of hard work and just sit on the bench watching the eagles fly about or watch the people fishing off the docks.
What a finish to a tough day and always made the day worth living...Rockport citizens are so lucky to have such a wonderful place to go, they should be greatfull

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Andre was a seal who came to the Rockport harbor all the time and became well known to the locals. His statue is in the harbor.

“A Must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

The Harbor itself is beautiful and Andre just adds to the appeal. A wonderful place to just sit and watch the boats, whether sailing or motor, come and go. A great people watching port.

“Great for the kids to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

You need to stop by at the Rockport Harbor Marina and see it. I suggest to watch the movie first so your kids will have the full experience

“Nice place for a picnic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is a nice, scenic little harbor. You can sit and watch the boats while enjoying a picnic lunch. There are harbor cruises that you can take if you have the time - wish I had planned better because it would have been a great day for a boat ride! Before you go, be sure to watch the movie "Andre"!
