Maine Windjammer Cruises® is the registered trademark for the first and oldest fleet of historic vessels offering sailing vacations in America. Established in 1936, it has been the cornerstone of the industry for 80 years. Our authentic turn-of-the-century coastal cargo schooners, Grace Bailey & Mercantile, have been lovingly restored and recognized as National Landmarks.
Our company's innovation of taking passengers aboard working schooners is responsible for the preservation of many vessels. It also has given tens of thousands the opportunity to enjoy the romance of sailing on a tall ship.
As a small family-run business, we are committed to giving our passengers not only the finest, but also the most genuine traditional sailing experience available today. Enjoy the serenity and camaraderie of a simpler time aboard our century-old sailing ships. The power of nature as she moves us across the water is an uplifting, almost spiritual experience.
