Open Water Rowing in a Stunning Location
Experience the beauty of early fall in Belfast Bay with a rowing tour in the dory boat Sorciere! This special row is an opportunity to take in the changing season, including the vivid and stunning foliage of midcoast Maine, which is just spectacular to see from the water. Enjoy a cup of local Maine cider and a baked treat to compliment your row! We'll row out into Belfast Bay or up the Passagassawakeag River, depending on the tide and weather conditions. In addition to viewing the foliage, we'll observe wildlife that make their home in this watershed, including different migratory bird species. You'll also learn about Belfast's working waterfront and our heritage of wooden boats. You can row or be rowed! If you choose to row, some basic instruction will be provided. Also, see the "Learn to Row 4-Pack (under Pricing Plans)!" The Fall Foliage Rowing Tour is available for up to 3 people, ages 8 and up; under 14 with parent/guardian accompaniment. Total on the water time is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. Your row begins with a safety talk, reviewing the different parts of the boat, going over rowing commands and getting seated properly and comfortably. Lifejackets (PFDs) are required to be worn on the boat and docks in the spring. DWR will provide these--however, if you have your own PFD, please bring it. Dress appropriately for the weather (Layers!). Temps can be chilly this time of year and the wind brisk. Wear comfortable synthetic, silk or wool clothing clothing, wind resistant outerwear and footwear appropriate for the conditions. Bring water to stay hydrated and a snack, if you'd like. Sunscreen is recommended. WEATHER AND DWR CANCELLATION POLICY: Safety is DWR's top priority. Rows are weather dependent. DWR will go out in a variety of weather conditions, including light to moderate wind, some chop or swell, fog, rain and snow. DWR's client cancellation policy applies--please review. Look forward to rowing with you!
A client-canceled row that happens 48 hours in advance will receive a full refund; 24 hours in advance, half the fee will be refunded. Less than 24 hours, day of cancelations or "no-shows" will not be eligible for a refund. A canceled row may be rescheduled one time. A cancelation after a row has been rescheduled will not be eligible for a refund. DWR reserves the right to cancel a row at any time, for any reason, generally due to safety concerns. If this is necessary, DWR will make every effort to reschedule the row. If this is not possible, a full refund will be issued. Rows purchased for a particular service cannot be transferred to another service.
