Program #8681ENZ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.
Explore Maine’s beautiful coast and its hundreds of islands aboard the 95-foot windjammer “Angelique.” This swift, snug and safe steel-and-wood sailing vessel serves as lodge, classroom and serene retreat. Departing from the beautiful town of Camden, “Angelique” drops anchor every evening in a picturesque harbor to let you explore a historic village, a beach or tide pool, a lighthouse or an uninhabited island.


Highlights

• Lodge each night aboard the classic English Channel windjammer “Angelique,” in scenic harbors along Maine’s majestic coast.
• Learn about the intriguing history of Castine, site of the worst naval disaster of the American Revolution.
• Explore Stonington, a quintessential New England fishing village home to the famous Deer Isle granite.
