Maine & New Brunswick 2020

River Cruise

Cruise up the coastline of Maine and cross the border into New Brunswick, Canada. Here, water is a way of life. Bath is the ‘City of the Ships’, once the nation’s 5th largest seaport, creating beautiful clipper ships that sailed the world. During WWII, Bath Iron Works launched an average of 1 new ship every 17 days. Off the coast of Rockland, you’ll spot lobster boats at work. Saint Andrews is at the cutting edge of marine research. And Portland’s Head Light is the oldest lighthouse in Maine.

Your Itinerary

    1Embark in Boston, MA
    Welcome aboard the Grande Caribe!

    2Bath, ME
    Bath sits on the Kennebec River. It’s been a major city in the naval shipbuilding industry, continuing to this day. Bath is also home to the Maine Maritime Museum, showing off Maine’s 400 year history of shipbuilding, and the culture of the region that’s grown around the industry.

    3Rockland, ME
    Explore the town of Rockland, with 14 houses on the National Historic Registry. And head up to Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse for views of Rockland Harbor and the lobster boats in the waters of Penobscot Bay. If you enjoy lighthouses, visit the Maine Lighthouse Museum, including one of the largest collections of lenses and maritime artifacts.

    4Eastport, ME
    Eastport is easy enough to say, but the town sits between Cobscook Bay and Passamaquoddy Bay – which may require a local expert to teach you how to pronounce properly! Watch for playful seals in the water! This afternoon we’ll tour the last stone mustard mill in the US – Raye’s Mustard Mill. We’ll also stop at the Moose Island Bakery if you want to indulge in a tasty treat.

    5Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB
    Saint Andrews is open to you – how will you explore the area? Head to Saint Andrews Biological Station or Huntsman Marine Aquarium to learn about the latest marine research? Find the walking trails along the beach? Visit Kingsbrae Horticultural Garden, home to thousands of flower and tree species? Play golf? So much to do!

    6Grand Manan, NB
    This is the largest of the Fundy Islands, and makes a perfect port to enjoy the day! Head up a lighthouse and take a seat to watch for whales and birds. The Swallow Tail Lighthouse is a Federal Historic Building. Or you can borrow a bike to take a ride on the shoreline and cliffside trails.

    7Eastport, ME
    Take an optional excursion "America's Easternmost Town."

    8Bar Harbor, ME
    Some of America’s most affluent families owned summer homes in Bar Harbor, including the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts – until 1947 when the Mount Desert Island fire destroyed 67 palatial summer homes on Millionaires’ Row and five grand historic hotels – not to mention the 170 permanent homes and 10,000 acres of Acadia National Park! Definitely visit the beautiful Acadia NP, with its stunning scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

    9Portland, ME
    Watch local fisherman bring in the daily catch as we dock in Portland. Tour Portland Head Light, the oldest lighthouse in Maine, with its fantastic views of Portland Harbor. If you enjoy oysters, we recommend Eventide Oyster Co, which offers sixteen different kinds of oysters – perfect way to enjoy the local seafood!

    10Disembark in Boston, MA

Go Where the Big Ships Cannot

Blount carries on the tradition of ship builder and company founder, Luther Blount, who made it his mission to build boats that could take vacationers to the same destinations he wanted to go to. One of his biggest achievements was the creation of the retractable pilot house. Mr. Blount created it specifically for ships to cruise the Erie Canal. He also created the patented bow ramp that makes it possible for passengers to walk from the ship directly to shore.

BYOB

Blount ships have a Bring Your Own Bottle policy. The ship provides the mixers and the bartender; you bring your favorite alcohol, and you can enjoy the cocktails of your choice without overpriced bar tabs.
