While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I get sea sick, but this trip looks like so much fun. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Donna Bowen Feb 08, 2015 at 09:27 AM

Kathy this is a worth while trip. No one on our trip got seasick. They give you pointers on how to avoid being seasick. You can also take along Dramamine.
Darleen Kraemer Feb 09, 2015 at 03:09 PM

Pack Dramamine for piece of mind but you won't need any. Will sail from a bay & go into cove for bad weather. Also, ship is made to sail smoothly (ketch).

Wondering if there is a place to leave a car nearby if driving instead of flying to departure city/ town?
Donna Bowen Jan 05, 2015 at 09:13 AM

Teresa, yes there is. All cars are put in a large boat garage on and old shipyard. All the cars were ok. It is a wonderful trip that I'm sure you will enjoy.

Hello: We're going on the Sept 14-20 Trip. We're looking for a ride to the New York City -- we need to be in New York by Sunday Night Sept 21. If anyone is going that way and has room for the two of us we' be glad to share expenses and driving. Thanks,
Murray Levy & Hester Palmquist

Got your email but my response got kicked back...so here it is again: Hi Murray, I'm only driving back to New Hartford, CT. I have another passenger, Jo-Anne, who's being dropped in Hartford and taking Amtrak back to the city. However, while I'd be happy to give you and your wife a ride, I have a Honda Civic and don't know if it would be able to hold 4 people plus luggage...At best it would be a very tight squeeze... I think you have to look elsewhere. Sorry I can't help you out. See you in two weeks, Chris
Murray Levy Sep 01, 2014 at 01:38 PM

Thanks for the thought -- look forward to seeing you soon, Murray

Hello! I'm renting a car in Portland......anyone know where the nearest drop off is in Camden? Do I need to then take a cab to the Angelique? Looking forward to sailing Sept 21st!
Darleen Kraemer Aug 21, 2014 at 04:50 PM

Last year, instead of renting a car, I took Concord Coach Lines from Portland. Apparently, car rentals are only at airports in this part of Maine, so you would have to park at Camden & return car afterwards. Easy to get taxi outside airport-short trip to bus station. Look online for current schedule. The nearest stop was at Rockport-Midland Farms. This is a gas station/conveniance store that also has a small eatery/take out. From there, Schoodic Bay taxi to Camden, another short drive. Atlantic St. is closest access to Angelique. Look for the side entrance to the Library-the path into the park across the street is where you need to go, taking the left fork in the road. She's berthed between 2 schooners so is easy to spot-also her red sails. Also, there are 4 public computers in that lower level of the library if you need it. Its a wonderful trip!!
