The Charm of Coastal Maine

Journey to the coast of Maine where the seafood is fresh, the shores are rocky, and lighthouses guide ships safely to harbor.  The dramatic landscapes take center stage here as we venture to the tops of mountain peaks, through charming coastal towns, and within a treasured national park.  Then get ready to marvel at Maine from an entirely new perspective as we set sail on the pristine coastal waters.  We'll head out in search of whales one day, revel in the spectacular views of lighthouses and summer mansions the next day and delve into the art of lobstering.  The area's rich history simply cannot be ignored, with up-close looks at three historic lighthouses and a visit to a preserved military fortification also in store!
