Harley “Hawk” Hickman will offer tours of Scituate Harbor this summer aboard his 1970 Amesbury skiff.

As a young man, Hawk harvested Irish sea moss in and around Scituate, and now spends his summers there. During each tour, Hawk will regale his customers with “Seaweed Tales” and historic facts, while showing them the beauty of Scituate Harbor. Special tours and demonstrations of mossing may be arranged.

Tours are available June through September. Maximum two passengers per trip. Both of Hawk’s books on sea mossing will be available for sale after the tour.

Contact at or by text at 617-605-6594 for details.
