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 and 6 p.m.
  • 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: Due to our small size, cancellations or rescheduling of dates affect us significantly. We limit the number of guests to a maximum 24 passengers each trip to keep our guests’ experience personal and customized. As a small, family-owned and operated business, this means that every booking is important to ensure an exclusive, authentic experience and excellent service. All cancellations (no matter the reason) made 8 weeks before your arrival are eligible for a refund less a $150 cancellation fee. For cancellations made on or inside 8 weeks before your boarding date any and all payments are non-refundable unless we are able to rebook the entire space. If we are able to fill the entire space, any payments will be refunded less a $150 per person cancellation fee. If your space is not completely filled, any payments are forfeited. If you need to change your trip date and do so before your final payment is made 6 weeks before sailing, any payments made can be applied to a future visit. If the date change happens on or inside of 6 weeks there is a $150 per person change fee.
  • Trip Cancellation Insurance Recommended: Because the Schooner J. & E. Riggin serves a limited number of guests, we strongly suggest that you purchase trip cancellation insurance. If you choose not to purchase trip insurance and an unforeseen event keeps you from being able to travel to Schooner J. & E. Riggin, we will be unable to refund your deposit and/or paid balance as set forth in our cancellation policy. You may use any travel insurance company you prefer. The Schooner J. & E. Riggin recommends Allianz Travel Insurance. Their toll-free number is 1-866-884-3556  or visit www.allianztravelinsurance.com.

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!”
