Grab a spot on one of these unique June cruises before it’s too late!

June is bursting at the seams with long days of sunlight, lupines galore, and a cornocopia of cruises! And if you’re lookimng for a windjammer trip with a little something different, check out these specialty cruises. Each of these trips still has a few spots left!

Lighthouse cruises

No matter which windjammer you sail on, you’re bound to see lighthouses. Penobscot Bay is home to over a dozen, many of which you can’t see from the mainland. However, some windjammer trips offer a few more opportunities to sail up close to, photograph, and learn more about these magnificent structures. There are still a few spots left on these lighthouse trips:

June 17-21: Lighthouse cruise aboard Schooner Heritage

and later in the season…

Sept 15-19: Lighthouse cruise aboard Schooner Mary Day

Coastal kayaking cruises

Why not combine two great activities: sailing and kayaking! Guests have the opportunity to spend one afternoon kayaking among the protected islands of the bay accompanied by professional guides. No experience necessary. Grab one of the last few spots on the Lewis R. French’s June trip:

Don’t forget to bring your appetite for an all you can eat lobster picnic on the beach, and your dance shoes for a toe tapping night of live music.

Culinary adventures

We know that great food is essential to your daily enjoyment. That’s why on any trip, we don’t skimp on the homemade meals and hors d’oeurves. From freshly baked morning treats to after dinner desserts, our cooks and galley crew work hard to provide our guests the best all day long.

A few cruises have a special culinary emphasis for those who want to take their food journey to the next level!

Culinary Explorations aboard Schooner Ladona

On this trip, we focus on our partnership with Fiore Olive Oils and Vinegars. Our chef will demonstrate how two seemingly simple ingredients — you guessed it, olive oil and vinegar — can transform any dish.”

Craft Beers of Maine cruise

Enjoy craft beers from local brewers and cider houses paired expertly with fabulous meals you have come to expect from the Riggin galley.

Taste and choose a beer to pair with your lunch from a selection Jocelyn has chosen, and at the end of a long sailing day, head ashore with Captain Justin for a tasting and tour at one of the many small breweries along the coast.
