Remote communities seldom visited by travellers don’t have the typical tourist-related infrastructure common in bigger ports.
Off the beaten track don’t expect professional guides, tour buses, or fancy souvenir shops, but this is precisely the charm of these isolated settlements. In these places, we will likely land in small expedition boats, meet the representatives of the community at the landing site, and be guided by locals eager to show us the best of their villages.
We may get the chance to enjoy a singing or dance performance, a taste of local food, or a craft demonstration, visit a small museum, enter a church, see the social centre, or stroll through the local market. Whatever they prepare for us, be sure that it will be a unique experience prepared from the bottom of their hearts.
In Eastport, explore one of the USA’s most historic port towns, that once rivalled New York as a trading hub along the East Coast of North America. Today the town is small, and fishing focussed, with a lively community eager to welcome you to their town.
