Mid Coast charms with rocky coastline, windjammer cruises, museums, vineyards

To some visitors, the main attraction of Midcoast Maine is its pure beauty – this is the iconic spot of rocky inlets, lighthouses, fishing ports, and rugged islands. It also is the home base – in Camden and Rockland – of the Maine windjammers – historic sailing vessels with a classic and romantic profile against the backdrop of sunset or a rocky island. Speaking of romantic, the Maine windjammers offer many types of cruises, for dining, nature, and sunset viewing. The famous towns of Boothbay Harbor, Rockland, Camden, and Bath offer all the Maine vacation charms, and ferries take visitors to Monhegan Island and Vinalhaven, for quieter, remote getaways. The whole region hops with great places to dine on lobster, including rough and refined presentations, along with music venues, and places for kids and adults to have fun , like museums and cruises, vineyards and casinos.

Get in touch with the free, nurturing spirit of Maine aboard these sailing ships

They say that Maine is more than a place: It’s a feeling. It’s fresh air, sparkling water, stately pines. Grab that feeling of freedom and adventure aboard one of the eight schooners in the Maine Windjammer Association. On board these stately ships, you’ll see lighthouses, visit remote islands (maybe for a lobster bake), check out seals and eagles, help set or furl a sail, enjoy down-home cooking. You’ll anchor off charming fishing villages and explore old town squares or go for a refreshing swim. On your three-, four- or six-day cruise, you’ll swap stories, sing songs, play games – and really relax. Theme cruises range from geology, photography and foliage to chocolate-tasting and wine-tasting. Visit our website or call 800-807-WIND for our current schedule and to reserve your tickets.
