ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Alongside registered Maine guides go kayaking in wide, stable, tandem kayaks on the ocean among picturesque uninhabited islands and hiking along astounding coastal trails with views of the Canadian Maritimes. Then learn about the largest mammals in the world, whale watching aboard a lobster boat. Explore a famous candy-striped lighthouse at the eastern edge of the continental U.S., join a naturalist-led hike in a bog, and, of course, enjoy a lobster feast.


• Paddle in pristine waters on the edge of Passamaquoddy Bay within the Bay of Fundy.
• Small kayaking and hiking groups create intimate camaraderie and allow for plenty of time with your instructors.
• Explore FDR's summer cottage on Campobello Island and lighthouses, and go whale watching board the lobster boat “Ocean Obsession.”

Program Notes

Please note that a valid U.S. Passport is required to enter Canada and visit Campobello Island.
