Please Welcome Our Newest Member, A Morning in Maine Sailing Tours!

Enjoy the Maine Coast’s beauty from the deck of Morning In Maine. Relax and watch the seabirds and harbor seals as the ketch glides through the waters of Penobscot Bay… or lend a hand in sailing the boat!

On most Maine sailing trips they see Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse, Owls Head Lighthouse, and historic schooners. Monday morning is the best time for a day sail in Rockland, Maine, where they watch the schooners sail out of the harbor for their week-long cruises.

Call (207) 691-SAIL (7245) or book your tour at
