Your day-by-day itinerary
Boarding in Damariscotta
Upon arrival at the harbour of Damariscotta, you’ll board your accommodation for the next two nights – a private boat with all the mod cons. Olga and Chip provide a warm welcome and the fridge is stocked with cheese and wine, so after you have brought your things on board, you can enjoy a glass of wine on deck while the sun is setting. No need to get sea legs on this boat, as the river is calm and the boat stays safe in the harbour during your stay, if you do want to venture on to dry land, there are restaurants nearby – just follow the sound of the local band.
Oyster Farm and Sea Lions
Make your own breakfast this morning after waking up peacefully on the slow-moving water. Soak up the sun on the deck of the boat or grab one of the kayaks to explore the river up close. In the afternoon, you’ll take a boat trip up the river, sailing past various oyster farms whilst Chip tells you all about the oyster catch on the river and Olga provides you with a snack and drink. There’s more wildlife than just molluscs in the area, so keep an eye out for sea lions or Bald Eagles along the way.
Departure from Damariscotta
After another peaceful night on the water, it’s now time to step back ashore and travel further along the coast to Acadia National Park or head inland to the rugged interior of the White Mountains.
