The Taber is docked at the wharf located at the end of Captain Spear Drive, just off of Tillson Avenue in Rockland, Maine.
Rockland is a four-hour drive from Boston, the last stretch a leisurely tour along Route 1. We have a dedicated, on-site parking lot which costs $20 (cash) per vehicle per trip. Our crew will give you a parking pass to place in your windshield and show you where to park.
