About the Water Line

An iconic image of this subway line.

The Water Line (a.k.a. the "water shuttle") is the only above-ground service operated by the DRT. We oversee a fleet of independently owned and operated high-speed passenger boats that serve coastal communities with regularly scheduled imaginary shuttle and ferry service. The Water Line operates seasonally, and as weather permits. Check this website for service updates.

The next time you're out along the shore and you happen to spot a passing boat sporting a fluttering pink-edged flag with the DRT logo, be sure to wave!

Like nearby Pigeon Hill, McClellan Park is one of this area's hidden gems of spectacular natural beauty. Its rugged granite cliffs tumble down to meet the pounding surf at the mouth of Milbridge's Narraguagus Bay. It is a perfect spot for picnics, tidepooling, or painting — or just sitting quietly and gazing out into the endless expanse of the North Atlantic.

Station entrance: On Tom Leighton Point Road, at the corner of Watchtide Landing. From here it's about a 15 minute walk to the park entrance.

Station masters: Barrie Latzko and Kipp Latzko
