Wild islands, rich history, and picturesque cities

From the rocky islets, forested waterfalls, and lobster fishing villages of the North to the windswept sand dunes, swamp forests, and crabbing communities of the South, the U.S. Eastern Seaboard is a fascinating study. Shared among these regions is a surprising plethora of under-the-radar islands—some uninhabited and teeming with wildlife, and others wholly unique as they preserve rare maritime cultures. Outside the din of nearby metropolises lie remote islands and critical nesting and feeding grounds for sea turtles and puffins. Beyond these nurseries, encounter 17 species of whales and rookeries with tens of thousands of gray seals. Time stands still in estuarian backwaters, secluded coves, and island villages with no paved roads. Discover an American east coast that few know exists, and even fewer will ever experience.

Expedition Highlights

Navigate wild Southern barrier islands, rugged Northern coastlines, America’s largest estuary, and a serene river valley in their peak seasons for scenic beauty and wildlife encounters. Actively discover tiny remote communities, little-known islands, and pristine natural landscapes on the lookout for puffins and whales, sea turtles and seals, and bald eagles and roseate spoonbills. Kayak past lighthouses and fishing villages, stroll squares lined with graceful mansions and live oaks, and hike trails under a canopy of vivid autumn foliage. Visits to regional historic and cultural treasures and exceedingly fresh, locally sourced foods are added delights.
