With only a small percentage of the Maine coast comprised of sandy beach, and most of that located south of Reid State Park in Georgetown, Pemaquid Beach Park in the heart of mid-coast Maine is a unique natural asset.

Pemaquid Beach Interpretive Guide

Touch Tank Tuesdays

Enjoy a touch tank on Tuesdays in July and August from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., courtesy of the Gulf of Maine Foundation and Darling Marine Center.  The touch tank allows you to experience first-hand many of the animals and plants that inhabit our coastal waters.  Participants are encouraged to enjoy gentle handling of the creatures, observation, drawing, and discussion. There is a period from 11:30 to noon of “quiet no-touch time” to give the critters a rest. Sponsored by The Edward A. Myers Marine Conservation Fund.
