What’s New for 2018: Specialty Cruises

Schooner American Eagle will offer an 8-day cruise that includes time looking for whales on Stellwagen Bank and Jeffrey Ledge, a national marine sanctuary.


The Maine Windjammer Association captains are welcoming guests with all kinds of interests to enjoy sailing along the unforgettable waters of Penobscot Bay. Whether you enjoy offshore sailing adventures out to Stellwagen to catch a glimpse of the whales or prefer a 2-day cruise around the Bay, the windjammers are a perfect way to unplug and rediscover what really matters.
