The Shark Six is located at Brown's Wharf Inn & Marina, 121 Atlantic Ave., Boothbay Harbor (on the east side of the harbor). We are the first boat (light yellow hull/green t-top) on the left at the bottom of the ramp leading down to the floats. Free parking is available for one vehicle across the road from the main motel/restaurant parking lot where you will see some orange traffic cones. If you have more than one vehicle, please let us know and we will direct you to an adjacent free lot. If you are spending the night at Brown's, either before or after your trip, you may park anywhere in their main lot. Brown's Wharf Inn (207-633-5440/brownswharfinn.com) is a terrific place to stay--their rooms have balconies with waterfront views, many overlooking the marina, and they offer their inn guests a free continental breakfast featuring fresh-baked blueberry muffins, steamed eggs, yogurt, and fresh fruit, and their guest service is impeccable. And, of course, you are only steps from the Shark Six.
Heading north on Route 1 in Wiscasset, take the first exit on the right after the Wiscasset Bridge, about 1/3 mile. It will be marked "Route 27 South - Boothbay Region." ( Heading south on Route 1, the exit is in Edgecomb and is well-marked). Follow Route 27 south for about 12 miles, and you will come to an intersection with a set of traffic lights, Hannaford's Supermarket will be on your right. Go straight through the light and up a slight hill for about 200 yards, where you will go past a church on your left and immediately come to a three-pronged fork in the road. Take the far-left road ( Pear St.), go to the end, and turn left. Follow this road around the harbor to Brown's Wharf Inn, approximately 1/2 mile. You will know you are at Brown's when you see their 30-foot fiberglass statue of a sardine fisherman dressed in black boots and yellow oilskins at the entrance to the parking lot. The marina is right behind the motel, where you'll often see some impressive yachts such as the 110-foot Big Bad John owned by the late singer/sausage king Jimmy Dean ( pictured above) who fished with us a number of times.
