    Cruise the tranquil waters of Long Lake on a Mississippi River-style paddle-wheeler as a prelude to taking a hay ride through the orchards and fields of a working farm.


    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely drive inland to the town of Naples, which perches at the end of Long Lake. Here, you will board the Songo River Queen II, a replica of a Mississippi River paddle-wheel boat. You will have plenty of room to settle in and stretch out, as the 93-foot-long boat has two decks, one fully shaded.


    As you cruise along the glass-smooth lake, you will take in the gorgeous natural views. In the distance, you will spot Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, and aptly named Pleasant Mountain close by. Other outstanding sights include Arrowhead Point jutting out from the shoreline and forested Pine Island off Mast Cove.


    Along the way, you will be served a lobster roll lunch, a classic Maine dish. Dessert will wait until you arrive at your next destination, Pietree Orchard. Author Tabitha King, wife of author Stephen King, owns this working farm, which has been operating for nearly 80 years.


    You will enjoy an authentic farm experience by taking a leisurely hay ride through the property. The driver will describe the environmentally friendly farming methods and the fruits and produce that flourish here

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing drive to St. Martins, a lovely coastal village settled in 1783. It is known for its twin covered bridges, which you will view from a vantage point that allows you to capture both bridges in one spectacular shot. Continuing on, you will travel the winding Fundy Trail Parkway, passing forest lookouts, more beautiful beaches and the spectacular Bay of Fundy that rims the park.


    At the Big Salmon Interpretive Centre, you will watch an enlightening video about the park’s history and the modest lodge that newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst built nearby. You will then have free time to enjoy the attractions that interest you most. You might meander the hiking paths, cross the suspension footbridge that spans the crystal-clear Salmon River, and explore the replica sawmill.


    Be sure to see Flower Pot Rock, a tall thin rock tower that the pounding sea has shaped over time. The bay’s rising tides have also created sea caves in the red sandstone, which you will see on the return to St. Martins. While totally submerged during high tide, the caves are easy to reach at low tide and make for a memorable photo any time. Following lunch at a restaurant that overlooks the caves, you will return to Saint John.

    Learn about the famous explorer Captain Cook during this informative tour that traces the coastal route he explored over 250 years ago. Before going on to discover New Zealand, Australia, and Hawaii, Captain Cook learned his skills as a navigator and captain in Newfoundland. The route you will follow today includes delightful fishing villages inhabited by people of English, French, and Aboriginal ancestry. Among the highlights you will enjoy are the rugged coastal scenery and inland forests, along with the possibility of sighting some seals and other wildlife.


    A stop will be made at Lark Harbor where you will be treated to a sampling of Newfoundland flavors with a coffee/tea break served by the friendly locals. This visit in the small community of Lark Harbor always proves to be a high point of the tour and gives participants a chance to meet the genial residents.

    Board your motor coach and brace yourself as you set out on a South Shore Adventure of Nova Scotia! Visit Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay and discover their colourful houses, museums, art galleries, souvenir shops, cafe’s and restaurants. This tour will demonstrate the beautiful diversity of the South Shore and allows you free time to plot your journey at each location, whether you want to savor the local foods and atmosphere in one of the cafe’s/restaurants, buy souvenirs, or just mosey along viewing the impressive sites and taking pictures, the choice is yours!


    At Peggy's Cove, discover why this picturesque seaside village with its stately lighthouse has been an inspiration to artists and writers for generations. It is here that the power and majesty of the Atlantic Ocean truly comes to life along the granite shores of the Cove - worn and shaped through the crashing surf.


    Continuing on, you will arrive at another extraordinarily scenic area, Old Town Lunenburg. Established in 1753, it is North America’s best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement. The original layout and appearance has been retained so faithfully that UNESCO designated Lunenburg a World Heritage site. During free time, you can explore the brightly colored Old Town, which is easy to navigate because the streets follow a rectangular grid pattern designed in Britain. You can expect to see 18th-century wooden buildings and perhaps a replica of the Bluenose, Canada’s legendary racing ship that was launched here in 1921. Finally, we will visit Mahone Bay, considered to be one of the most attractive towns in Canada. This small and friendly community is renowned for the view across the Bay of three prominent churches. Take time to explore the many varied and local offerings along lovely Main Street before relaxing on the return drive to the Port of Halifax.

    Cruise to nearby Peaks Island for a traditional Maine lobster bake with all sorts of delectable side dishes at a quaint New England inn.


    After a short walk from the pier, you will board a ferry bound for Peaks Island, which lies just three miles offshore. Although it will only take about 15 minutes to reach the island, the crossing of sparkling Casco Bay will be wonderfully picturesque.


    You will pass the 19th-century Bug Light Lighthouse, an elegant cast-iron lighthouse with Corinthian columns that was modeled after a monument that stands near the Acropolis in Athens. You may also spot Fort Scammel on neighboring House Island, which was erected prior to the War of 1812 to protect Maine’s coastal communities.


    First settled by the Abnaki Indians, Peaks Island started to flourish in the late 1890s, as Portland’s population grew, hotels and cottages were built and an amusement park went up. It is hard to imagine, but Peaks Island was once called the “Coney Island of Maine.” Today, the population is about 1,000, and the lifestyle is low-key and quintessentially New England.


    Upon arriving, you will walk to the nearby Inn on Peaks Island, a seasonal lodging that features outstanding views of the sea and classic Maine cuisine. Here, you will enjoy a traditional lobster bake that will include New England clam chowder, steamed mussels and sides such as corn on the cob. If you wish to stretch your legs afterwards, there will be time.

    Discover the history of the privileged Bar Harbor area by driving through town and around gorgeous Acadia National Park before heading out to sea on a 151-foot schooner.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a scenic and enlightening drive through Bar Harbor. The town became one of New England’s most exclusive destinations at the turn of the 20th century, attracting the likes of the Rockefellers, Carnegies and Vanderbilts, who built opulent summer “cottages” on Frenchman Bay. At Village Green, you will see Bar Harbor’s iconic cast-iron town clock and 19th-century bandstand.


    Continuing on into Acadia National Park, you will follow a stretch of the 27-mile road that loops through the spectacularly beautiful park. In time, you will pause for photos at one of the most dramatic overlooks. The exact one will depend on the conditions and time of day.


    You might watch the crashing surf spew as high as 40 feet at Thunder Hole, gaze out over gorgeous Sand Beach or stand atop Cadillac Mountain. From this highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard, you will enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Bar Harbor and the Porcupine Islands.


    Back in town, you will board the Margaret Todd, a spacious four-masted schooner and head into Frenchman Bay for a closer look at the offshore wonders. As you sail around the immensely scenic island-dotted bay, the you will hear commentary describing the points of interest and wildlife such as porpoises and bald eagles.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an extraordinarily scenic and circuituous drive through the countryside and around the northern edge of Passamaquoddy Bay. Upon reaching the town of Saint Andrews at the tip of a peninsula, you will board a Zodiac boat and zip off toward the Bay of Fundy.


    Over the next few hours, you will watch for the abundant marine life that come here to feed. Although a dozen or so species of whales are found here during the summer, the most commonly sightly whales include humpbacks, minkes and finbacks.


    Humpbacks have huge appetites and are named for the way they arch their backs out of the water before diving to feed. You may also spot them spy-hopping with their snouts and eyes vertically out of the water and slapping their fins on the water’s surface.


    Minke whales are much smaller, ranging between 15 to 25 feet, and are easy to identify by the white strip across each flipper. Finback whales are the second largest of all whales and are generally solitary and have a distinct dorsal fin. The crew will help you identify the whales, elaborate on their behavior and answer questions.


    Following this magnificent adventure, you will enjoy free time in Saint Andrews to shop and perhaps enjoy lunch on your own.

    A wonderful outdoor adventure, this tour features leisurely walks through the nearby woods where views include a cascading waterfall, meandering stream and open parkland. Boarding your school bus at the pier, it's a brief drive to the scenic Corner Brook Stream trail system, where you will have the pleasure of hiking its serene paths, parts of which wind through the city. The trail follows the stream itself, which eventually flows into the bay. Along the way, look for songbirds warbling in the trees, wildflowers blanketing the forest floor, and clusters of ripe berries in the bushes.


    To enhance the experience and take full advantage of the ever-changing topography, there are pedestrian bridges, staircases and platforms that offer dramatic views of the countryside. Next you will be shuttled to the Glynmill Inn Trail, much of which also runs parallel to Corner Brook Stream and Glynmill Inn Pond. Mill workers originally constructed the pond as a dam to supply power to the city's paper industry.


    Following your hike you will stop at a local café for a tasty treat made with Newfoundland berries before driving back to the pier where your tour concludes.
