At a Glance

Navigate the shifting tides and rocky shores that greeted the first Europeans to settle in the New World on a voyage of learning and discovery of New England and the Canadian Maritimes. Walk where the seeds of new nations were planted as you trace the history of the sea-hardened fishermen and shipbuilders who made a life on these rugged Atlantic outposts, and study the natural diversity that flourishes alongside the ocean.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Explore beautiful Bar Harbor, situated amid the natural splendor of Acadia National Park.
  • Go back in time to an era when Maine ruled the shipbuilding industry and see the final resting place of dismantled Civil War vessels at Eastport.
  • On the Bay of Fundy walk narrow lanes among the colorful homes of fishermen, rugged Grand Manan Island and go inside the Roosevelt summer estate on Campobello Island.
