ARCADIA NATIONAL PARK
Begin your journey on the stunning coast of Maine. A landscape of wide-open spaces, deep woods, and vibrant coastline, Maine Is the perfect place to begin your New England adventure. When you arrive your luggage will be taken to your waiting vessel while you enjoy a thrilling white water rafting experience down the Kennebec River. This river is the perfect balance of adrenaline-pumping rapids and relaxed floats down mirror-still rivers. Stop on a riverside beach and enjoy a delicious wild lunch over a fresh barbecue.
Return to your vessel in the evening for a relaxing dinner on board. Arise early for a journey through the glistening waterways of North Woods. Surrounded by dense forest and historic mountains that form the Appalachian trail. As you gently paddle through the waters you may see trout jumping, beavers at work, otters swimming, black bears, and of course the majestic Maine moose.
Having worked up an appetite, head out to sea on a traditional lobster boat with local fishermen who have worked these waters for years. Here you will help the fishermen haul in their traps and you will be able to enjoy some of the fruits of your labour on the dock during a delicious sea-to-table meal.
Explore the stunning edges of Arcadia National Park on one of your vessel’s tenders. From the sea, you can witness the abundance of stunning natural habitats that the park Is home to. From wooded trails and marshy grasslands to soaring rock formations and jagged cliffs, there are few places in the world as diverse and beautiful. Find osprey, bald eagles, and puffins that soar high above the park and nest on the open cliffs.
Stop on one of the largest uninhabited islands on the East Coast. Marshall Island is a 985-acre island maintained by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Be dropped off and embark on a hike across it along some of the 10 miles of trails that criss-cross the island. Take in views of rocky coves, wooded paths, and glistening waters as you hike. Reach a secluded beach where a wild meal will be ready and waiting for you prepared by your yacht crew.
