|Hiking: Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park – Casco Bay Trail – meander in and out of the pine forest along the coast spotting osprey and harbor seals along the way.|
|Lobsterman: Haul up your dinner on a lobster boat cruise out of Portland. Any keepers are for sale on the dock, where you can have them cooked.
|Nature Viewing: Hardy Boat Puffin Watch – out of New Harbor from June thru August (until the puffins leave). 5:30 PM|
|On the River: 3 hour cruise on the Kennebec River from Bath to Fort Popham. See lighthouses, seals, eagles, osprey, sturgeon and more.
|On the Bay: Take the mail boat on either the morning or afternoon run. Discover the islands in the Casco Bay.|
|Beach: Totally rustic – Seawall Beach – 2 mile hike over Morse Mountain. No facilities. Limited admission.
|Stop and Smell the Roses: At the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay.|
|Bird Watching: Bradbury Mountain – raptor flyway (April – May); town dock – sea birds; Cousins River – great blue herons; Brunswick Airport – snowy owls (winter).||Walk to an Island: At low tide on Popham Beach you can walk to the Fox Islands. Hike to the top for the vista and a small memorial plaque.|
We know there are so many different places to go and things to see that you’ll never see all of them this trip. Check out the calendar to plan your next getaway!
