6 Things to do When Visiting Portland, Maine

Whether you’re just passing through on your way north or staying for a week, we’ve put together our top 6 recommendations to optimize your time in the beautiful city that Sea Bags calls home.

Setting Sail for a New Flagship Store Location

Plans are in motion to move the Sea Bags Flagship store down the street to a space more than three times the size of a typical store. With our retail footprint expanding throughout New England and beyond, we jumped at the opportunity to also expand in our hometown of Portland, Maine.

Earth Day Is Everyday and We're Always Celebrating

Each year, Sea Bags teams up with like-minded environmental organizations to celebrate Earth Day. Among many notable causes to support, ocean conservation remains at the forefront of importance to our brand, and in protecting the future of ocean habitats. This year, we're excited to partner with No Shoes Reefs, a grass roots organization led by Kenny Chesney.

Overcoming Challenges to Support Causes That Matter

There's nothing more gratifying than coming together as a community to overcome obstacles and give back to an important cause. Despite the hardships of 2020, one thing has remained the same; Maine communities continue to come together.

Designed From The Heart

In celebration of Heart Health Month, Sea Bags has partnered with the American Heart Association to create the Breton Stripe Heart Tote. Sea Bags will donate 20% of the tote’s purchase price to the American Heart Association’s Life Is Why™ Campaign.

Remembering the F/V Hayley Ann

In January of 2020, Captain Joe Nickerson and his crew perished at sea while fishing aboard the F/V Hayley Ann. In honor of her father, Captain Joe’s daughter Hayley designed a tote in partnership with the Maine Coast Fisherman’s Association and Sea Bags.
