From someone who has cruised the Maine coast for over 10 years and running, you will not regret the trip. Be prepared for extensive fog, especially prior to September, and don't even think about making the trip without "A Cruising Guide to the Maine Coast" by Hank and Jan Taft and Curtis Rindlaub. This is one of the better guides I have seen from any region and will significantly improve your planning. Maine alone has more coastline than the entire USA west coast. In a couple of months you will be able to visit all of the major regions, but will not come close to exploring everything there is to offer. Don't bother with anything south of Casco Bay, but do consider venturing east of Mt Desert, a boundry often self-imposed by most cruisers. Enjoy!!!
(Also, don't travel all that way to just freeze your ---es off in October!)
