Announcing All-New Cruises for 2013

Birding is just one of many passions that can be combined with windjamming. The Lewis R. French will offer a week-long guided birding cruise in July.

While relaxation is the number one goal of any cruise, now it’s possible to combine a day of gorgeous sailing on Penobscot Bay with a wide array of fun activities. This year, Captain Brenda Thomas of the Isaac H. Evans is offering many new cruises including an amateur astronomy cruise with astronomer Roy Hewitt; a four-day cruise with one of the best-loved folk singers in the Northwest, Hank Cramer; and a cancer care fundraising cruise.

Guests aboard the Schooner Mary Day will try their hand at brewing a nut brown ale on the June 17 “Craft of Ale” Sail.  
For food lovers, how about a week of wine tasting and gourmet food? Captain Mike McHenry of Angelique is offering a new cooking and wine cruise. For beer connoisseurs, how about a June 17th “Craft of Ale” Sail aboard the Schooner Mary Day
you can even try your hand a brewing a batch of nut brown ale underway!

For nature lovers, Captain Wells of the Lewis R. French is offering a guided birding cruise or you can explore Acadia National Park the most-often visited National Park in the US when you sail aboard the Angelique. Ever wonder how Maine’s landscape got to be so spectacular or why the Earth is made up of layers? Hop aboard a geology cruise with Captain Files of the Victory Chimes.

And what about the true old salts – people who love sailing so much they want to sail at night? Now it’s possible aboard American Eagle during a four-day sail in August, with a spectacular summer moon waxing toward full. That’s sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

These new cruises join the tried and true roster of specialty cruises offered year to year including a beloved Pirates cruise for the young and the young-at-heart; a story-telling cruise where yarn spinning is the name of the game; whale and puffin scouting; knitting; and photography cruises featuring professional photographers who are on-hand to guide the amateur and capture that once-in-a-lifetime image. So whether you love lighthouses, wild birds or chocolates, there’s a windjammer cruise sure to ignite your passion!
