8 of the best places to visit in New England on board Marae

8 of the best places to visit in New England on board Marae

Somes Sound, Mt Desert Island, Maine

For those times when you really want to get away from it all, Marae can take you to the Somes Sound, which splits Mount Desert Island, Maine nearly in half. The only fjord in the eastern US, this deep, narrow passage is seldom visited by yachts. We will sail up between the towering cliffs until the water opens up into a wide, calm bay. If we are lucky, we may see one of the Peregrine falcons which have begun to repopulate the Acadia National Park.

We can anchor for the night in the bay which is a perfect location for making use of Marae’s kayaks and paddleboards while Chef Sue prepares a dinner with fresh lobster and local Maine blueberries for dessert.
