This tour will spend two nights at the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park surrounded by the mainland portion of Acadia National Park. Then, we’ll shift to the Eastland Motel in Lubec for two nights, which sits within 15 minutes of Quoddy Head State Park and the South Lubec Sand Flats. We’ll explore the spruce-fir maritime forest, Acadia’s coastline, and visit Canada’s Campobello Island. We’ll be rewarded with a variety of songbirds, migratory shorebirds, pelagic birds and whales.
Participants should bring binoculars, and each tour is quite good for photography. Spotting scopes can be useful, which the guides will provide for group use, as well as guidebooks and extra binoculars. Each tour will not require strenuous hiking. Hikes will be slow and on level ground. There may be some spots that are muddy, uneven, and slippery. Adequate footwear is advised, but large boots are unnecessary. Boat tours can be cold and wet. Bring appropriate clothing.
Cost: $1120.00 (based on double occupancy). Lodging upgrades available.
