Sail the coast of Maine aboard the fully restored 1920s racing schooner Ladona and experience Acadia National Park like never before, from land and sea. Enjoy classic Maine food and drink such as a lobster bake, popovers at the Asticou Inn, and an exclusive farm-to-table dinner at the Red Sky restaurant. Take a break from the water to explore historic Bar Harbor, plus take a bus tour of Acadia including stops at Thunder Hole and Cadillac Mountain. This all-inclusive, 6-day, 5-night trip leaves from and returns to Rockland.
Guests will spend the nights aboard the ship. Below is a link to the cabin layout:
Board the Ladona at 1pm and set sail from the dock in Rockland. This trip gets started right away with a welcome lobster bake and Allagash beer tasting. We’ll be anchored for the evening.
A hearty breakfast and we’re off for a day of sailing that will bring us into Bar Harbor for some sightseeing and shopping after dinner.
We’ll take a bus tour through Acadia National Park, stopping at a number of highlights that we haven’t been able to view from the water including Cadillac Mountain, Thunder Hole, and more. We’ll also enjoy classic Mount Desert Island popovers at the Asticou Inn and a private tour of the famed Azalea Garden. Then we’ll sail to Islesford.
We’ll sail over to Somes Sound, where we’ll enjoy a farm-to-table dinner at the Red Sky restaurant in Southwest Harbor.
A full day of sailing will get us about half way back to Rockland. We’ll anchor for the night and enjoy more of the great food and drink you’ve come to expect from Down East Adventures.
We’ll arrive back to dock around mid-morning. Plan some time to poke around Rockland and explore the many art and cultural venues that make it such a vibrant community.
