Description

Drink in the exquisite beauty of Downeast Maine in summer during a guided cruise around Acadia National Park. During the course of your tour, moor at Little Cranberry Island and visit a 200-year-old lobster fishing community before exploring the natural fjard of Somes Sound.

Begin your cruise in Northeast Harbor and venture aboard a well-appointed sightseeing vessel with a canopy, offering protection from the wind and sun. While the seasoned skipper steers the ship into the Atlantic Ocean, keep your eyes peeled for basking harbor seals and ospreys building nests along the coast. On the way to Little Cranberry Island, soak up sights of Cadillac Mountain, which rises like a slumbering giant from Mount Desert's bed of balsam fir and gray birch trees.

Moor at Little Cranberry Island and stroll through the downtown, where lobster fishermen and women have resided for hundreds of years. Breathe in the fresh, salty air, and then venture inside the Islesford Historical Museum for a look at how coastal communities in Downeast Maine make their living by the sea.

Finally, from the Cranberry Isles cruise into Somes Sound and unlock the wonders of this natural fjard, where protected coastal waters have served as a haven for many a wayward ship. Come about and return to the marina, where you can pose any lingering questions about life in Downeast Maine to your captain before bidding the crew farewell.
