Sample Itinerary – 7 days
Day 1 : After a short ride from Logan Airport, you arrive aboard Audra Anne, docked in the heart of historic Charlestown Navy Yard, home to such attractions as the Bunker Hill Monument and the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides).
Day 2 : After breakfast we head for Marblehead, famous as a sailing town and the starting point of the Marblehead to Halifax race. Ashore you will find 19th century dwellings and great shopping. Try the Landing Pub, well worth the time!
Day 3 : We’re off to Cape Ann, home of the oldest fishing village in the country, Gloucester, famous for the Gorton’s fisherman and the filming of The Perfect Storm. We will dock in Rocky Neck at the Studio Restaurant, in the center of New England’s largest Art colonies.
Day 4 : Leaving Gloucester, we pass Eastern Point Lighthouse on our way to Rockport. We will anchor at the beautiful front beach and transport you by tender into this fabulous port. A trip to Rockport would not be complete without a trip to Hannah Jumper Restaurant on Donovan’s Wharf.
Day 5 : This morning we head for the Coast of Maine, with an intriguing stop at the Isle of Shoals, just off the coast of New Hampshire. After lunching at Foye’s on Cedar Island, home of the best lobster roll anywhere; we head Down-East into Maine, arriving in Portland. The restored downtown is home to lovely shops, pubs and restaurants.
Day 6 : We head east from Casco Bay, moving from the beach coast to the rocky coast of Maine and onto Camden. Climb Mount Battie for an incredible view of Penobscot Bay.
Day 7 : Our adventure is drawing to a close as we cruise up Penobscot River, once a major logging area and used as a backdrop for the ending of The Hunt for Red October. We arrive at Bangor where we say good-bye, and as you head for the airport, you are already planning your next adventure onboard Audra Anne!
