June sailing cruises in Maine: Windjammer cruises offer a wide-variety of cruise choices!
“What’s the sailing like in June?” people often ask. Well, it’s pretty darn great. June brings long days of sunlight, crisp breezes (bring a hat and warm jacket and you’ll be comfortable!), and green foliage that’s almost as dazzling as the colors of fall. “One of my favorite parts of cruising in June is seeing the migrating seasonal wildlife,” says Captain Barry King from Schooner Mary Day. “Seals pups are everywhere; pelagic species return to the bay and offshore islands to nest (puffins), island foliage and wildflowers are peaking, porpoise begin appearing, bald eagles and osprey are nesting close to the shore in some harbors. June feels refreshing….that feeling, craving, of life renewed is everywhere you look.”
“I agree. June is singular…” says Captain Noah Barnes of the Schooner Stephen Taber, “having the bay to ourselves, the fresh green of the new leaves, and the long days are my favorite parts. Most guests are surprised by having dusk as late as 9:15pm, a result of our extreme eastern and northern locale. Long evenings mean extra time to explore the harbors in one of our rowing/sailing dinghies or sailing through dinner to reach an extra special anchorage.”
