2018 Sailing Season

The Schooner American Eagle offers a good mix of three-, four- and six-night cruises with a couple longer ones.  If you’re looking for something unique during the 2018 sailing season, consider joining us for 8 days in June when we sail to Stellwagen Bank/Jeffries Ledge at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay to watch whales, or for 11 days in July to explore the Maine coastline beyond Acadia National Park and across the Canadian border to New Brunswick. A perennial favorite is the 6-day trip over Labor Day to sail to Massachusetts for the Gloucester Schooner Festival.

5% discount for those having sailed with us before.

Every trip is available for charter until the first person reserves.

Call 1-800-648-4544 for availability.
