Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) January 4, 2007
Boating enthusiasts and nature lovers alike are indulging their spirit of adventure with Bayliner Discovery's (http://www.iamdiscovery.com) Maine Island Trail travelogue. "Visitors to the website join National Geographic Adventure Magazine Contributing Editor and renowned kayaker, Jon Bowermaster, as he and his buddy, Bruce Alter, take the helm of a Bayliner Discovery 288 Cruiser," said Matt Guilford, marketing director for US Marine, Bayliner's parent company. "With video documentaries, still photography and narrative journals, visitors share the friends' voyage from Portland to Bar Harbor."
The first and second parts of the three-part Maine Island Trail series have thrilled boating enthusiasts, as will the soon-to-be-released third segment. During their voyage, Bowermaster and Alter cruised by Jewell Island and Eagle Island, the former residence of Arctic explorer Admiral Robert Peary, and witnessed lobstermen bringing in fresh catch to the docks in Cundy's Harbor. The pair also visited Pemaquid Point and camped overnight on Basin Island. Along the way, Bowermaster seized the opportunity for a foggy afternoon kayaking trip in Goose Cove. "The freedom of boating lets you make your own rules -- and then break them on a whim," said Bowermaster. "The only steadfast rule is to follow your spirit of adventure."
On http://www.iamdiscovery.com, a nautical compass also transports visitors to the first Bayliner Discovery journey. Motor Boating Magazine's Managing Editor John Wooldridge and his buddy, Ken Nicholson, challenged a new Bayliner Discovery 246 Cruiser in the Pacific chop from San Diego to Catalina Island and on through Channel Islands National Park to Santa Barbara. Along the way, the two men kayaked near sea caves and embarked on a dusty buffalo safari. Wooldridge, who said that he jumped at the chance to test the Bayliner Discovery 246 Cruiser, found the craft up to the challenge of six-foot breakers and open ocean.
The website invites visitors to "join us for a string of boating adventures at all points of the compass -- excursions where the mix of people, places, weather and wildlife transform trips into journeys." And they don't disappoint. Bayliner also launched a companion video platform, http://www.iamdiscoveryvideo.com, where Web users can view video trailers of each journey, post them on their blog or vlog, share them with friends and sign up for a RSS feed and future updates from Bayliner Discovery.
