The Landing: Boat Tours & Arriving by Boat
Whether you arrive by boat or by car, The Landing is just one of many ways to experience nature at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Enjoy a peaceful boat tour or go on a kayaking adventure, right from our very own dock. Small boat moorings are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and we have a deep water mooring available by reservation. You can also stop by The Landing and simply enjoy a beautiful view of the Back River as well as a few local islands.
Getting to The Landing
Enjoy the wild coast of Maine on your walk along the Shoreland Trail, which is accessible from the Haney Hillside Garden or paths off of Birch Allée. A shuttle can take you as far as the Pine Cone sculpture along the Shoreland Trail; from there, enjoy a leisurely stroll past our Fairy House Village on your way to the dock.
