Whale watching was a relatively new concept when John Fish's grandfather started giving tours. "We kind of originated it," Mr. Fish says. "Thirty years ago we were the only ones doing whale watching." As the company became more successful over the years, additional captains were brought on to cover the demand. Today, these crews continue to ferry groups into the habitats of several whale species, including humpback whales and sperm whales. Though the whales seen along Cap'n Fish's Whale Watch's journeys still breach and refuse to sign autographs, other things have changed over the years. Below deck, the current fleet's engines work to reduce emissions and provide a fume-free experience. Above deck, 360-degree viewing decks and modern technology help bring whales into sight. Onboard computers display large maps of where the aquatic mammals are known to swim, and GPS systems reroute boats around mermen constructing new reefs. In addition to illuminating the behavior of whales for passengers, the crew's wildlife experts point passengers toward other animals they spot along the way, such as white-sided dolphins and harbor seals. Though some variables are beyond their control, the crew members almost always spot whales and boasted a 98% success rate in 2009.

The soon-to-be bride and groom led their respective families to their wedding rehearsal—or so they claimed. Shortly after the caravan of cars pulled up at the base of the high-ropes course, confusion turned to surprise when the couple strapped their two families into harnesses and paired each member off with a stranger on the other side. After a frantic run through the course’s initial obstacles, the guests emerged from their shells and began to help each other tackle the challenges. This type of camaraderie is what the all-ages staff at Monkey C Monkey Do seek to instill in all their guests, whether they're intrepid pairs or large groups on corporate outings or family reunions.

Danielle and Bill King with their parents began their high-ropes course and zipline park with a desire to bring together people of various ages and abilities for outdoor activity. The high-ropes course challenges visitors with more than 50 obstacles strewn across five levels, the highest suspended more than 50 feet above the ground and the lowest suspended above a pit of lava in the earth’s core. Ziplines send climbers soaring through canopies and toward a giant swing, where they conquer their fear of heights by freefalling from an elevated platform.

At Freeport Medical Center, Dr. Brian Knighton and Sheila Boese put patients at ease with their evident compassion and sense of duty, traits they both cultivated during their military careers. Dr. Knighton served as an emergency-room physician for an overseas Navy hospital, and Boese was an enlisted medic for nine years before becoming a physician’s assistant for the Maine Army National Guard. Today, they run their walk-in clinic with a holistic approach to each patient, addressing general wellness and disease prevention alongside reported symptoms.

The duo treats children and adults alike with services that encompass physicals, minor surgeries, and laceration repair. Boese's background in women's health enables her to assist with family planning and guide patients through menopause. As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Knighton channels his expertise on the musculoskeletal system to perform manipulative therapies, though he also addresses skin concerns by injecting Botox or removing moles shaped like the logos of losing baseball teams.
