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 three to ten days. During the 2017 season we will enjoy two long trips. In June we head out on an ten-day adventure to Sail Boston and then out to Stellwagen Bank in Massachusetts Bay to observe whales. A ten-day trip in July will find us sailing way down east to the Canadian border and back. Our annual trip to Gloucester Massachusetts to participate in the Mayor’s Cup Race over Labor Day is a favorite, too.
A special 6-night trip Photography cruise is planned for the WoodenBoat Trip boarding September 10th. Adventure photographer Greg Gettens will be aboard to share his fascination of capturing the beauty of the Maine coast through the camera lens.
There’s always a variety of three, four-, five-, and six-night cruises including moonlit sails as weather permits to accommodate just about any length vacation.
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.
