Local Recommendations

This list was put together based on our favorite hangouts, hideaways and happening venues in the Rockland and Midcoast area, as well as from passenger recommendations. Before or after your windjammer cruise, we hope you take some time to get to know the MidCoast Maine area from Bath to Searsport, including the wonderful towns of Boothbay, Damariscotta, Rockland, Camden, Lincolnville and Belfast.

If you have any questions regarding your trip to our area, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re happy to help!

Heard on the Docks…

“All aspects of the cruise were wonderful but it was the kindness and warmth of the captains and crew that made the difference. Each one brought a distinctive gift to the experience from the flowers on the table to the watermelon that sailed to the music. Annie, the food was superb. Captain Jon, thank you for guiding us so ably through the beautiful islands of Penobscot Bay. We will never forget it.”
