Join Captain Noah and his crew for a glorious 6-day voyage around Penobscot Bay and Maine's coastal islands, aboard the oldest documented sailing vessel in continuous service in the U.S. Each morning we wake you with the smell of coffee and hot muffins, and the sounds of seagulls and lobsterboats. Then we enjoy a day of sailing, and best of all, you get to participate if you want, with a turn at the helm, or hauling on halyards with your shipmates to raise our sails. You can help by hand-cranking the ice cream maker for your evening's dessert, too. During the day you can take a snooze out on deck, snuggle up with a good book, shoot photos of spruce-fringed islands, lighthouses, and perhaps some seals. Each afternoon we drop anchor in a secluded cove or cozy harbor, and you'll have the opportunity to explore ashore, until it's time for a great home-cooked dinner, and afterwards, entertainment in the form of music and story-telling. You'll enjoy the stars, away from the light-pollution of any cities, and then off to your cozy cabin for a restful night's sleep. Do you think you can handle 6 days of this? Is there any doubt in your mind?

Rockland, Maine
Rockland is at the heart of Midcoast Maine, an area world famous for its mountainous and rocky shore, with hundreds of harbors and inlets, and for some of the best cruising waters anywhere. A nearly mile-long granite breakwater protects Rockland Harbor and its picturesque lighthouse.

Rockland's history includes shipbuilding, lime processing, granite quarrying, and commercial fishing and lobstering. Historic Main Street forms the core of retail shopping, and has gone through a renaissance over the last several years. The community’s proud past survives in many ways, including a newly restored and enlarged Carnegie library, and an incredible mix of traditional residential styles of architecture that rivals the historic homes of many larger cities. Lodging is plentiful, dining opportunities abound and day trips in any direction provide ample rewards, including museums for rainy days.
