Spring sailing offers some of the best bargains of the season with Rates ranging from $525 for Shake Down weekend to $895 for a Weeklong cruise. 

During the Preseason there are two weekends to choose from. The first sail is one of my favorites of the season.   The crew has been sanding, painting, calking and rigging tirelessly for over a month and a half readying the schooners for passengers and a great sailing season.  After all that hard work by the edge of the bay both the crew and schooners are ready to get out there and sail! Spirits run high with the anticipation of amazing days on the water, serene anchorages and Lobster Feasts. It's always a happy, energy charged cruise.  Join us on May 20th for Shake down as we get the season off to a rousing start!

The only other weekend sailing opportunity until our summer season begins is Memorial Day Weekend.   Boarding on May 27th at 2pm and returning Sunday the 29th, this cruise lets you start off  the unofficial beginning of vacation activities and glorious days in style.  Traditionally on this weekend family and friends gather for  back yard barbeques.  Come aboard and let us do the cooking for you.  Lobster and Steaks on the grill cooked by your Captain & Crew.  The cruise returns by 10am on Sunday, so if you're from the New England area, you'll still be able to make it home in time to catch your hometown parade and fire up your own grill for burgers and dogs with friends! 

Weeklong and three day cruises  will be available beginning May 29th through June 22.  Weeklong cruises board on Sundays and return Saturday mornings and three day cruises have the option of boarding on Sundays or Wednesdays. 

Hope to welcome you aboard this Spring!
