Maine Kids & Family Cruise

Kids & Family Sailing Trip

Sail away on the J&E Riggin with your family

Taking a vacation together is one of the most memorable ways to spend time together as a family; whether it’s just parents and children or a multigenerational adventure. The Schooner J&E Riggin Kids & Family cruises offer something truly magical – a place where time stops and enchantment begins.

Father and Son Pirates - by David Wellborn

Aboard this 1927 wooden schooner, a National Historic Landmark is a place to unplug and get back to the simple things in life. It’s the perfect environment for rest and relaxation for mom and dad and a unique adventure that both kids and parents will remember as a life enriching experience.

While on the schooner learn to tie knots, help make the days bread in the galley, take a turn at the helm, help crew haul the anchor and sails or chart, navigate, and identify names of islands & lighthouses just like an 19th century sea captain or pirate did. When we anchor for the evening you can explore uninhabited islands, beach comb for shells and sea glass, play beach games like marshmallow toss, and take in the saltiness of fishing villages and quaint coastal harbors.

Come enjoy the magic of the sea with us!

All prices are listed per person and are all inclusive including lodging, meals and shore excursions; a deposit of $350 per person reserves your cabin.

Learning about a Maine Lobster

Heard on the Docks…

“I can’t stop talking about: the schooner, the food, the people especially the kids, the Captains and crew, the sea creatures, the bald eagles, the cramped room which makes me laugh, the food again, the scenery, the mosquitoes, and the food, etc.  This was such a treat to introduce my grandson to Maine and the windjammer experience..”
