October Sailing

While sailing aboard an historic vessel along Maine’s spectacular coast is fabulous any time of year, sailing in October when the islands and coastline are aflame with the reds, oranges and yellows of fall is a once-in-a-lifetime, not-to-be-missed, bucket list vision.

Thousands of visitors leave the state at the end of August, emptying the harbors, villages, islands and beaches that guests are welcome to explore on each trip.
