Maine Maritime
Maine Coast

"Thanks again for one of the most enjoyable vacations we have ever had. We both needed a break from our hectic lives and the maritime tour gave us exactly what we needed."

- Bonnie and Joe Racho

The northern coast of Maine is absolutely beautiful.  Its rugged coastline calls to mind the western coasts of Ireland and Scotland. Salt water beaches await the adventurous swimmer. Spectacular sunrises greet the early riser. This will be a tour to remember as we encounter some of the most beautiful maritime views to be found anywhere in the world.

We'll stop at small fishing harbors and islands to watch lobster being unloaded from lobster traps and ships headed out to sea.

Starting out in Bar Harbor, Maine, we will begin with a full day of exploring Acadia National Park and the rest of Mount Desert Island. You might choose to ride along the coastal road or hop on a boat to do some whale watching. In the morning, you might travel to the top of Cadillac Mountain to be among the first in the United States to see the sunrise. Acadia is a real treasure for motorcyclists and has been described as a favorite touring destination in countless magazine articles.

Next we will hug the coastline of Maine as we travel up into the Canadian province of New Brunswick. Enroute, you might choose to head out to visit the childhood summer home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. We'll also lead you by ferry out to a small Canadian island to watch the largest whirlpool in the western hemisphere.

Riding through the blueberry barrens and mountain roads of Maine, you'll visit the easternmost lighthouse in the United States before returning to Bar Harbor.

After each great day of riding, you'll sit down to an elegant dinner and then have time to relax by yourself, or with new friends in a wonderful country inn or grand hotel. Our lodging in Maine is right on the ocean and includes a beautiful outdoor pool and hot tub. Our lodging in New Brunswick is a majestic grand hotel which overlooks the Bay of Fundy.

For lunch, riders who choose to can join us at one of the best "lobster pounds" in all of New England where we will feast on fresh lobster, corn-on-the cob and other regional specialties.

The Maine Maritime Tours last for five nights and include double-night stays in Bar Harbor, Maine and Saint Andrews, New Brunswick. Mt. Desert Island is a popular summer resort area in mid-summer but the areas we'll travel to "down east" of the island are rarely explored by other visitors.
