Whistling Pig Gift Shop

Your source for Maine-made fine Arts, crafts and gifts, and Eastport Lobster and Fish Company memorabilia

Our Magnificent Location
The Eastport Lobster and Fish Company is proud to offer the gift shop with arguably the most incredible panoramic view in America. Situated on the end of our wharf, The Whistling Pig gazes across to Canada's famous historic Campobello Island over the deep blue Passamaquoddy Bay. Surrounding our cove is also Deer Island, Cherry Island and Indian Island, with mainland New Brunswick seen as a quiet blue haze on a sunny day. Come shop and watch the boats go by.

A Finely Crafted And Selected Inventory
It's not just the view that's so compelling. It's also the fact that we've scoured our local area and reached out to greater Maine for skilled artisans and craftspeople to fill our shop with treasures. We carry hand-dyed quilted wall hangings, woven woolen blankets, braided rugs, hand-made walnut and oak humidors, prints of local paintings, black and white photography of local scenery, stained glass lamps, pottery, books, gourmet gift items, countless objects made from natural materials from our rich seashore, and much, much more!

For The Kids
We haven't forgotten the little ones! Besides handmade candy in the shapes of lobsters, moose, scallops, and other unexpected forms, we have children's print luggage, "puddle pants", tons of beautifully illustrated books by Maine authors, and our favorite, bug houses!

And If That Isn't enough...
We carry an extensive line of Eastport Lobster and Fish Company hats, aprons, shirts, limited edition mugs, lobster bibs, and other Eastport memorabilia. Stop here also for tide tables, maps, and tickets for whale watching tours and charter boat rides leaving daily from our wharf!

Where Did Our Name Come From?
We're sure you are curious about how our gift shop got its name. Well, here's the story. Back in the 19th century, there were as many as 16 sardine canning factories in Eastport. Each factory had its own distinctive whistle to call workers to the workplace when the fish were in and workers were needed. It was also used to signify quitting time. Each factory whistle had its own distinctive sound so that its workers could make the proper identification and respond. The factory that stood on our historic site was named "The Whistling Pig" because - you guessed it - of its unique pig-like sound.
