Maine coast sailing! We sail from Rockland, out by Rockland's own Breakwater Lighthouse and Owl's Head Lighthouse, which enclose a huge protected working harbor and bay, offering 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 best of the coast of Maine on an agile, safe, cozy boat with an intimate closeness to the water and the wind. Unlike Camden Harbor, where they motor out for the first twenty minutes, and back into the tight harbor, we set sail right away, sometimes sailing right off the dock. With an interesting working harbor, with seals in it, less crowds, more parking, plenty of restaurants...Rockland is great.
Relax and just enjoy, hoist sail or steer.
This is your time, your trip, your day.
Safe and easy to sail, this swift comfortable boat offers personal service for up to six passengers of all ages.
See Maine the way it is meant to be seen, from the water! I use my flexibility to offer sailing trips unlike any other, fun, informative, relaxing, and personal.
Come on out!
