We usually go around Owl's Head and down the Muscle Ridge Islands to land on an uninhabited island and cook the freshest lobster and local corn to accompany homemade local salads and pies, cheeses, etc.
Depending on the tide, we tie up to a historic quarrying island or land on a beachy island, or possibly both for a hike/eat/sail combo! This is an 7-8 hour trip usually.
We provide a cheese platter on the sail out, and have dessert on the sail back to Rockland, because usually people are full from eating one or two lobsters a piece (did we mention it is impossible to have lobster fresher than we have it, unless you cook it on the lobsterboat!) Maine has a lot of locally grown food, and we put out potato and green salads as well as butter for your corn, melted butted for your lobster, all on real plates and glasses, cloth napkins, with ice water and whatever other beverages you'd like.
There's time for a stroll or a hike with a longer trip, or a swim or some time looking for shells or lazing on the beach. Fresh coffee and fresh pie of the season finishes it off, until when you finally step back ashore in Rockland, we guarantee complete contentment.
Be our guest, be our guest
Steamed over seawater on the beach and served to cool on a clean bed of local seaweed, our lobster bake feasts are one of the few things that rival the scenery you'll be eating in.
With homemade pies, fresh corn, and a tasty array of ever-changing picnic delicacies, we spoil you like grandparents, feed you like family, and treat you like royalty.
Al Fresco Feasto
The crack of a claw shell goes nicely with the whispery tidal splashing on shore and the seabirds and ospreys above.
Lobsterbake island picnic on the beach is a triple word score for anyone's BucketList.
Food tastes better on the beach, better when its fresh, and better when its prepared for you. We hit the trifecta, for you. Come see the magic.
Sail through a postcard
Sunsets on the water and the coastal night skies are two of the most overlooked sights of MidCoast Maine.
Never crowded, always nice and often spectacular - the Magic Skies option is a smart choice for folks looking to put a cherry on their sunnydae.
Magic Sky Tours
Pricing based on sail time as previously described trips
Sunsets on the water are special and the night skies are mesmerizing. Together, they're magic. You can see the full sky, and the ocean glows in concert with the changing colors. As the colors deepen, the stars begin to twinkle and twilight's show dims to the dark velvet of dusk. Lighthouses swing their signal across the bay and the water shimmers with shore lights and town glow. Talking feels loud, and there is a tingly magic and warm camaraderie to being member of the lucky few that get to experience a summer night on the water in Maine.
Rockland Harbor is wonderfully situated to sail out by the lighthouses, and return into the sunset as the moon rises behind us.
Awesome stars, great moon. Sometimes the water shimmers with phosphorescence as it moves by the boat.
Moon rises work well a day or two before, or the day of the full moon. On the day before the full moon, the moon rises about 20mins before sunset, then, the day of the full moon, it rises just after sunset, and, the day after the full moon, it rises 50 mins after sunset.
Standard rates apply for length of sail, we don't charge extra for the sun to set or moon to rise, just more wonders of our marvelous world! We do know how to get you to the best spots at the best time to see those wonders and share them with you!
