Things to Note:

  • While we feel every sailing cruise is special, we do offer some windjammer trips with events or with a special focus. You can find descriptions under the “Schedule” menu.
  • Keep in mind we board every trip the evening before the date listed between 5-6p.
  • To check availability or reserve your cabin please email us or give us a call at 1-800-869-0604.
  • There is a 5% discount if reserved BEFORE February 1.
  • A deposit of $350 reserves a berth on any cruise, the balance is due 6 weeks before your sailing date.
  • Cancellation Policy: You may cancel up to 6 weeks before your sailing date and receive your deposit back less a 10% handling charge. If you should cancel after the six-week mark or your final payment has been made, we will issue you a refund less a 10% handling charge only if we are able to rebook the berths we were holding for you. We highly recommend passengers purchase trip insurance, especially if you have a family or job situation, which may necessitate a last minute cancellation.

We look forward to being a part of your Maine windjammer cruise.

Heard on the Docks…

“We want to thank you for all you did to make sailing on the J&E Riggin such a memorable experience. I had looked forward to it so much for so long that I was afraid that the actual experience could not live up to the anticipation. It did!”
