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.


Cruising coastal Maine
Your Captain determines where the schooner is going depending upon wind and weather. Penobscot Bay and surrounding waters are filled with islands, bays, harbors and channels. Your Captain navigates with the safety and comfort of passengers foremost in mind, and strives to find an itinerary both fun and interesting.

Eastport, Maine
Eastport is a small town with a population of approximately 1,200 and less than 4 square miles, located on Passamaquoddy Bay. It is a walking "city" to enjoy scenery and an abundance of wildlife. Bald eagles, minke whales and seals are just a sampling of what you'll see. If you would like a "downeast" breakfast of fresh fish, hash brown potatoes and good coffee try Liberty Cafe. Fresh lobster?- go to Quoddy Bay Lobster.

Lubec, Maine
Lubec is a small town with a population of approximately 1,500 and is the easternmost town in the contiguous United States. The town is home to the famous Quoddy Head State Park. The West Quoddy Lighthouse is a must to see. Tides are extreme so explore the inter-tidal shore. You can't overlook Lubec's rural coastal setting and feel it's tranquility and solitude. Nothing better than smelling salt air and listening to fog horns.

Crossing Penobscot Bay, Maine
You will pass by numerous islands ranging in size from 1/2 to 100's acres. Most are unoccupied and have many hiking trails. The islands are under the stewardship of the Maine Coast Island Institute which oversees preservation activities.
