5 First time sailors this year already! Come out sailing!
We sail often by Owl's Head Lighthouse, just 2 miles from Rockland's own Breakwater Lighthouse, enclosing a huge protected working harbor and bay with views of the Camden Hills, Owl's Head Beaches, Schooners, Seals and Seabirds, Muscle Ridge Islands, and commentary on local history. We play the tide and the breeze to share the coast of Maine.
2012 season, I logged 2000 nautical miles, taking hundreds of folks on sailing tours including 105 first timers.
Also offering Overnight and Multi-Day Trips!
Now also offering overnight trips aboard the schooner Advent, about the same size as Bufflehead, but with a different layout. Contact me to schedule an overnight trip or a 3-7 day voyage. Advent and Bufflehead were built by the same man, Bud McIntosh, 11 years apart. I've rebuilt them both, Advent for her owners and Bufflehead for myself. While sharing sailing through daysails on Bufflehead is great, I'm pleased to be able offer (and enjoy) the greater range of travel in this magnificent part of the world that the capacity to sleep several people aboard offers. Advent's private aft cabin's wide bunks, and her delightful main cabin and comfortable handling male this a great boat and a magnificent opportunity. Contact me for more information if you're interested. More pics soon!
Bufflehead Sailing Charters offers a unique opportunity to experience Maine. Get on the water aboard a classic vessel, on a short sail, see Rockland's active working waterfront, nearby lighthouses, panoramic bay vistas, seals and seabirds. Longer sails can reach islands or other towns, to see, visit, hike, picnic or enjoy a lobsterbake on. Sail with an accomplished friendly Captain who knows the waters and has sailed across oceans under sail, large and small. With a keen eye for sharing the joys of the experience, as well as history, geology, biology, art and other facets, all while prioritizing safety and comfort, we can promise an experience without match. Step into your own adventure, with Bufflehead Sailing Charters.
We share these waters with the Windjammers, the local fleet of schooners, former cargo boats of New England now engaged in the passenger trade. We sometimes get quite near with our friends for magnificent sights of these grand vessels.
