Enjoy breakfast at the resort before our fun adventure out today. We will be welcomed aboard the Rugosa. Their popular tour is known as one of the top-rated boat attractions in the region. They are the only lobster boat tour in Kennebunkport, Maine, hosted on a traditional wooden Downeast-style lobster boat. Rugosa’s lobster tour offers the most exclusive, personal, and educational cruise in Kennebunkport. They sail from the beautiful Kennebunk River waterfront at the historic Nonantum Resort & Marina. We will get the chance to join them on what is sure to be a highlight of your time in Maine!"

Next, we’ll depart for the beautiful city of Portland with cobblestone streets, world-class eats, and a scenic working waterfront in the heart of the Old Port. Lunch included, along with a tasty treat, just before our next tour.

The light station sits on a head of land at the entrance of the primary shipping channel into Portland Harbor, which is within Casco Bay in the Gulf of Maine. Completed in 1791, it is the oldest lighthouse in Maine. The light station is automated, and the tower, beacon, and foghorn are maintained by the United States Coast Guard, while the former lighthouse keepers' house is a maritime museum within Fort Williams Park.

Once back in Old Port, enjoy a little time for shopping & exploring on your own in this quaint historic district with cobblestone streets and brick buildings housing clothing boutiques, gourmet food stores, and souvenir shops.

With their gourmet coffee & delicious sandwiches, enjoy lunch on your own. Maybe you’re looking to enjoy an ocean-side walk with plenty of opportunities to sit and take in the gorgeous view.
