Life is most abundant where the ocean meets the shore. That’s true the world over and Maine is no exception. That’s why every coastal cruise aboard a Maine Windjammer Association vessel promises wildlife galore. The Penobscot Bay is teeming with birds, mammals, flora and fish who make their home on Maine’s coast. Maine Windjammer passengers are bound to see something (or someone!) spectacular while sailing – maybe a porpoise playing in the bow wake or eagles hunting, or even a seal popping its head up for a look around. Maine’s windjammer passengers find that Mother Nature never disappoints.
Maine’s windjammer Captains have plenty of experience sailing these waters and can easily identify the local wildlife and some captains are offering Naturalist cruises designed specifically for people who are interested in focusing on the local the plants and creatures they might find on Maine’s coast.
Captain Mike of the Angelique is offering passengers a cruise with professional naturalist Barbara Tomlinson in the early part of the season when osprey, eagles, porpoise, puffin and seal pups will abound.
Captain Barry of the Mary Day is offering a photography cruise with professional photographer and Registered Maine Guide Jim Dugan. Captain Barry writes, “Celebrate the longest days of the year exploring island and intertidal ecology ashore and experience great sailing with the crew of the legendary windjammer Mary Day”.
