“Mackerel scales and mare’s tails ships fly high sails” is an old fisherman’s saying that refers to the weather and fishing conditions. Generations of fishermen have called Boothbay Harbor home and that heritage is what makes this town unique. When you book a vacation rental with Mackerel Sky, not only are you getting a great place to stay but you are getting the insight of a local fishing family and the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to continue a way of life that is becoming more and more difficult to sustain. Lobsters fresh from the boat are available to you at dock prices.
