"Do what you want." - Our official motto.
Totally flexible, custom sailing trips along the Maine coast on a classic wooden sailboat.
Safe and easy to sail, this swift comfortable boat offers personal service for
private trips or open bookings for one to six passengers.
See Maine the way it is meant to be seen, by water. We sail daily, May to late October, from Rockland's Windjammer Wharf, in Midcoast Maine. We play amidst the islands on the protected waters of Penobscot Bay to see lighthouses, the Camden Hills, lobsterboats, seals, schooners, seabirds, fishing boats and more...
Relax and just enjoy, or hoist sail or steer.
This is your time, your trip, your day on Penobscot Bay.
Look at my Calendar for availability.

Short or long, lobster or not, folks have fun aboard Bufflehead. Come see why.
Family business! I'm the Captain, owner & operator, my daughter is my crew, my wife helps with the shoreside logistics.
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 for magnificent sights of these grand vessels.
I also can take photos for you, with your camera or device, with lighthouses behind you, or islands, or schooners, or while you are steering or on the beach...I open wine, I row you ashore...
Bufflehead Sailing Charters offers a unique opportunity to experience Maine. Get on the water aboard a classic wooden sailboat. On a short sail, see schooners and fishing boats, workboats and yachts along Rockland's active working waterfront and nearby shore, with lighthouses, panoramic bay vistas, mansions and deserted islands with seals and seabirds. Longer sails can reach islands or other towns, to see, visit, hike, picnic or enjoy a lobsterbake. 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.
