Tour Details

Enjoy this great opportunity for a Windjammer Sail onboard an authentic schooner in Maine's beautiful Casco Bay. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views, or join the crew and learn about sailing.

Since the 1700s, schooners have been used for a variety of purposes because they are fast, sleek, adaptable, and considered the sturdiest ships of all time. On this Windjammer Sail tour, you will board a beautiful 48-passenger vessel for a two-hour sail on Casco Bay.

This excursion provides the perfect way to experience the beauty of the Maine coast, complete with lighthouses, seals, seabirds and the rugged coastline. Pack a meal, bring your favorite wine or beer, and sit back and relax as our courteous and professional crew share their knowledge of the sea, sailing and local history. Or, if you feel inspired, join the crew to hoist the sails or take a turn at the ship's wheel. All ages are welcome!

Windjammer November 28, 2016
Reviewer: Lauren Benner  
This was the highlight of our trip.  We took the 12:30 excursion and there were only four passengers booked for that time.  The crew of three couldn't have been better.  Sailing conditions were fantastic.  The boat was beautiful.  I know it was just lucky that we had such a small group but it will be one of my favorite vacation memories!


 
 
We hated to see this sailing trip end. November 8, 2016
Reviewer: Lois Jarrell  
This was the most relaxing time while we visited Portland.  Neither of us had ever been sailing so we were very excited to climb on board. It was quit amazing watching the shipmates handle the sails, putting them up and again bring them back down. Cruising along the coast was very picturesque so I took lots of shots. Another great excursion.


 
 
Portland Bay By Ship November 13, 2015
Reviewer: California Leaf Peepers  
Before we boarded the 2-masted, 103 year old schooner we were applauded for our willingness to brave the cold and mist in order to see the Harbor sites from the water.
The entire crew shared their knowledge of the area while we "tacked" and "came about".
