Sail with Captain John Foss and the crew of the Schooner American Eagle for a truly excellent vacation and a great experience. Step back in time and enjoy a leisurely cruise along the coast of Maine. Sail where the wind blows and leave the world behind.
The American Eagle sails on cruises of varying lengths, from two to nine days. During the 2011 season we enjoyed exploring the offshore islands from Casco Bay to the coastline past Mt. Desert on an 8-night voyage. In 2012, the American Eagle, the only windjammer in the fleet certified to do international voyages, visited the beautiful coastline of New Brunswick, Canada. Our annual trip to Gloucester Massachusetts to participate in the Mayor’s Cup Race over Labor Day is a favorite, too. 2014 features an eight day adventure down east to the Canadian border and back, and a variety of four-, five-, and six-night cruises including moonlit sails as weather permits.
Lighthouses, wildlife, and unspoiled scenery are part of every trip. Each cruise is a unique vacation: exciting sailing at a reasonable price. Half of our guests have sailed with us before, or have come on the recommendation of a friend.
If we don’t have a trip that fits your schedule, we recommend the schooner Heritage also sailing from the North End Shipyard in Rockland.
