Guided expeditions are organised, with interesting information offered on Maine’s nature and history.

One of the best is a short drive away at Pemaquid, which boasts a good range of facilities and is the ideal spot to experience Maine’s bracing water temperatures. On land you could take the chance to explore the area, with sleepy villages and forest waiting to be enjoyed – Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is an important landmark and dates back to the early 19th Century to guide ships past a trick portion of the Maine coast.
