Early October is peak foliage season along the coast of Maine.

Fall is New England’s busiest season. People travel from all over the world just to catch a glimpse of New England’s blazing colors. There’s no better way to see the autumn foliage than from the decks of an historic windjammer. Luckily, the windjammers still have a couple of weeks scheduled to offer passengers the sailing trip of a lifetime. Every morning begins with a cozy mug of coffee and warm muffins while bright reds and yellows peep out from the fog and the day is spent sailing past Maine’s rugged coast in full fall regalia.

Autumn shows itself in many forms aboard a Maine Windjammer.

There are cruises leaving every day the first week of October – normally the height of the leaf peeping season. There are still spots for last-minute travelers so book now. Visit our website to book your last-minute fall adventure.
