Sailing aboard the Schooner American Eagle is your opportunity for adventure, relaxation, delicious food, and good company all while experiencing the natural beauty of the Maine coast.
When exploring our home grounds of Penobscot Bay, our trips range from three to six days, giving us the opportunity to see some of the many incredible places our coastline has to offer. However, if a longer journey or some offshore sailing is what you seek, come aboard for seven to ten days while we venture as far north as the Canadian border and as far south as Gloucester, Massachusetts.
No matter how long your trip or where we go while you are aboard, each unique journey creates countless memories in the making.
The Maine Coast is waiting for you.
With the breeze of each new day filling our sails, we head off to wherever the wind, weather and tide take us. Today, it may be a small coastal village with a charm and history all its own. On the way, we’ll see some of the many different lighthouses that pepper the coastline, visiting places best enjoyed from the water. As we sail along, seals and porpoises may slip in and out of our wake while ospreys and eagles glide above us.
Tomorrow, we might venture to one of the thousands of secluded islands that fill Penobscot Bay, giving you the chance to explore its trails or enjoy its beaches while our crew prepares a traditional shoreside Maine lobster bake for dinner. After a warm slice of Maine blueberry pie for dessert, stay on deck to enjoy music and stories from our captain or settle into your cozy cabin for the night as the water rocks you to sleep.
A culinary experience to savor.
With locally-sourced ingredients like fresh meats, seafood, and seasonal produce, our menu strives to give you a Maine culinary experience to remember, varying each trip to best utilize the amazing local offerings that each part of our season provides. All of our meals aboard are prepared on a wood-burning cookstove with daily menus ranging from Maine clam chowder with herbed buttermilk biscuits to homemade pasta bolognese and tiramisu. Everyday brings plentiful entrees, fresh breads, robust appetizers, and delicious desserts, taking care to accommodate your dietary needs when and where we can.
