Go aboard real fishing boats, scallopers, lobster boats and whaleboats. Take a harbor tour. See scallop shucking, net mending. and other maritime competitions. Watch the whaleboat races, tugboat muster and the Blessing of the Fleet. Then enjoy the “Seafood Throwdown”. Local chefs compete using local seafood and native produce to impress a panel of judges with their best dish.
