6 Breathtaking Ports Blount Visits in Coastal Maine & New Brunswick
Nature lovers, a cruise through coastal Maine and New Brunswick evokes a peaceful simplicity...home to some of the finest undisturbed nature in North America. Naturalist Laura will be joining our passengers onboard to point out whales, birds, seals and other wild life. Don't forget to pack your binoculars.
1. Bath, ME
Bath, a place where almost no buildings predate the 1750s as a result of the French and Indian War. It was in the 19th century when the architectural splendor of the city flourished alongside master craft shipbuilding.
2. Rockland, ME
The spectacular mountainous and rocky shoreline unfolds to multiple inlets and harbors, making it one of the finest shipping and recreational boating harbors on the East Coast.
3. Eastport, ME
Nestled between Cobscook Bay and Passamquoddy Bay, the last stone mustard mill can be found in Eastport, which has been family owned and operated for four generations.
4. Bar Harbor, ME
In its beginning, artists, scholars, scientists, and writers journeyed to Bar Harbor for inspiration and tranquility. Upon visiting, it's easy to understand the attraction. We cruise the numerous coves and inlets amid green, wooded shores - a true natural paradise.
5. Portland, ME
Located in the heart of Casco Bay, Portland blends the character of yesteryear with an eclectic twist. The Portland Head Light is the most notable attraction, given its status as the oldest working lighthouse in the state of Maine!
6. St. Andrews, NB
Welcome to Canada's premier resort town! St. Andrews By-The-Sea offers whale watching, fine art galleries, local shops and restaurants all from a charming seaside setting. You may opt to visit Kingsbrae garden or stop by Campobello Island where President Franklin D. Roosevelt spent his summers.
