Come aboard these windjammers and launch your coastal Maine adventure

Why choose your seagoing adventure aboard one of the schooners in the Maine Windjammer Association? Because cruising along the Maine coast, with its hidden coves, sandy beaches, charming villages and 3,166 off-shore islands is like nothing else on Earth. Because your three-, four- or six-day cruise will take you past lighthouses and spectacular wildlife from eagles and osprey to seals, puffins and whales. Because the food, freshly prepared, is fabulous (especially that lobster bake) and your room modern and comfy. Because you can learn seamanship and take the helm or just soak up the sun from your deckchair. Because there’s storytelling and music and hand-cranked ice cream – and so much fun.
