Windjammer Cruises

  • Many windjammers call the Maine coast home with many more that visit frequently. A number have deep historical significance, some are more than 143 years old, and others are designated National Historic Landmarks. Their histories are as varied and different as their hull shapes and sail plans.

    Numerous vessels conduct trips from as short as two hours to as long as a week or more. Schooner trips include friendly passengers, excellent food, anchoring with other vessels and often sailing side by side with another windjammers. Since the ship will “go where the wind takes her”, an anticipated course is just that. Built of heavy wood and constructed for strength and durability, windjammers are some of the most stable platforms for a passenger to enjoy or photographers to work from.
