Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: London – Boston – Ogunquit (approx. 73 miles)

Fly into Boston’s Logan International Airport and pick up your rental car before making the 50 minute drive through New Hampshire to the Maine fishing hamlet of Ogunquit. Stay 1 night at the Colonial Inn, Ogunquit (or similar).

Day 2: Ogunquit – Camden (approx. 73 miles)

Why not take the opportunity to explore Ogunquit this morning? This is one of the most popular seaside resort villages in New England whose very name means "beautiful place by the sea" in the indigenous Abenaki language. Perhaps walk along the cliff top Marginal Way to Perkins Cove and enjoy a delicious lobster lunch before leaving for Camden. Your drive takes you up the Maine Coastal Route past villages, pretty harbours and lighthouses with plenty of temptations to stop and explore further. Make sure you arrive in Camden by 5.30 though so that you have time to board your Maine Windjammer Cruise. Your first night aboard is in berth.


Days 3 - 4: Sailing Maine’s Islands

After a hearty breakfast this morning, set sail for your three-day adventure, cruising between the islands of Maine. Take in the sea air, enjoy a refreshing swim, relax and unwind as you cruise along this wonderful stretch of New England coastline. Wind direction and tides determine your days’ events and with no set itinerary, you never know what you’ll see next. Lunches are served in a buffet style on deck (weather permitting) and at dinner, you and your fellow seafarers will gather around huge galley tables to enjoy a delectable New England meal.

Day 5: Camden – Bar Harbor (approx. 76 miles)

It’s time to disembark this morning back in Camden. Why not spend some time in this quaint harbour village before another scenic drive north along the coast to Bar Harbor, gateway to Acadia National Park. Stay 2 nights at the Wonderview Inn, Bar Harbor (or similar).

Day 6: Bar Harbor

Today you’ll have the opportunity to explore New England’s only National Park, one of the oldest and most beautiful in America. Take in majestic peaks, plunging glacier carved valleys, crystal clear lakes and the only true fjord on the USA’s Atlantic Coast. You can choose the Park Loop Road route to discover the park’s natural wonders or drive up to the summit of Cadillac Mountain which, at 1,530 feet (or 466 metres) above sea level, is the highest point on the Atlantic seaboard.

Day 7: Bar Harbor – Portland (approx. 174 miles)

Follow Maine’s scenic coastal roads southwards today, with as few or as many stops as you’d like on your way to Portland. This is one of New England’s most funky cities, occupying a stunning location on a peninsula in Casco Bay. Spend some time exploring the historic port area, visit the famous lighthouse at Cape Elizabeth or perhaps just relax with a cool glass of beer at one of the city’s many boutique breweries. Stay 2 nights at the Best Western MerryManor (or similar).

Day 8: Portland – Kennebunkport – Portland (approx. 62 miles)

Spend some more time discovering the city of Portland today. For an authentic Maine experience why not join a lobster boat for the day or, if you feel like some shopping, head over to Freeport for great retail outlets. You might also like to visit the popular resort town of Kennebunkport just down the coast.

Day 9: Portland – Boston - London 

You’ll leave Portland today and head back down towards Boston for your flight home. There are plenty of distractions on your route back down the coast. Pay a visit to bustling Portsmouth New Hampshire, perhaps stop in Salem, Massachusetts, a village famous for its 17th century witch trials, or if you’re travelling between May and September you might like to try some whale watching from Gloucester or Rockport. On arrival at the airport, drop off your hire car and catch your return flight to the UK.
