2019 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 2019 sailing season, consider joining us for 10 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 trip over Labor Day to sail to Massachusetts for the Gloucester Schooner Festival. For 2019, the Gloucester trip has been expanded to 9 days in order to include whale watching and a chance to explore harbors along the way.

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.
