Discover the best of ‘The Pine Tree State’ in 8-days/7-nights
There is something to be said about a state whose license plates boast it to be “Vacationland”, but then again, there is something magical about Maine. From the breathtaking scenery, to the secluded coves, and its quaint fishing villages, Maine houses a panoramic view of beauty that will leave you taken aback.
Cruising through Penobscot Bay, you’ll take in the aroma of the endless wildflowers and pine forests, decompressing as we maneuver through glittering blue waters. At each dock you’ll find days filled with exploration, observing lobstermen unloading their daily catch, classic wooden yachts coasting along the harbors, antique shops, and nature preserves. You can also spend a day of restoring relaxation taking in the sunshine from the observation deck.
Your small ship was specially built and intended for cruising the intricate, narrow and meandering waterways of Eggemoggin Reach and Fox Island Thorofare under the supervision of a seasoned captain. And when it comes to the cuisine, we surely won’t allow you to go without famed Maine lobster! Regional specialties and local fruits and vegetables are also sure to please your palate.
Shore excursions include Acadia National Park which sits on Mount Desert Island, and Owl’s Head Transportation Museum. You’ll get a firsthand look at why the nation’s affluential families chose their summer playground to be Bar Harbor during the Gilded Age.
You’ll take in a multitude of lighthouses, historic and prehistoric sites, and an abundance of wildlife journey through each port of call.
After this weeklong excursion comes to an end, you will be absolutely captivated by the warm welcome received on land and on board. By week’s end, you will fully understand why there is something so magical about Maine.
