Be part of our boating adventure as we journey through the Down East Circle Water Route.
If you live near to, or know something about any of the places we will be boating on our 3,500 mile “Down East Circle Route” cruise on our boat this early summer, then please help us. We are both in our later 60s and very excited about this boating adventure!
Our boat is a Pursuit OS 345 with two Yamaha 350 outboards. Where do you suggest we stop to look at cool stuff or eat at amazing and fun places? Which marinas do you find most helpful? What should we be careful of as we cruise in specific areas? What tips do you have for us? We leave May 20 and will return to Cape Cod on August 1st.
We are navigating this big circle of the north-eastern USA and eastern Canada. Here is what it looks like. We’ll leave Bosun’s Marine on Cape Cod (where I store our boat for the winter) and head to New York City using the Long Island Sound; then we’ll head up the Hudson River to the Albany, NY area; then west on the Erie Canal to Syracuse, NY; then north on the Oswego Canal to Lake Ontario; then east to the Thousand Islands Area at the head of the St. Lawrence River; then over 750 miles “down east” to the ocean at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River; then around Gaspe Peninsula and on to Prince Edward Island; then to Cape Breton Island and the rest of Nova Scotia; then southwest across the Bay of Fundy to Maine; then along the coast of Maine, NH and MA and finally back to Cape Cod via the Cape Cod Canal and Buzzard’s Bay.
We will be posting pictures and descriptions on this blog of what we see and do as we go. We would love to get your suggestions! Come join us by following along as we go. If possible, it sure would be fun to meet some of you as we stop in the 70+ towns and cities along the way.
Happy boating tales!
