Welcome to the historic town of Rockport Maine. Take an afternoon sail aboard the Heron and enjoy an educational narrative. Learn about the history of the once busy industrial town. Rockport was won in a card game in Boston by Robert Thorndike in 1769 and separated from Camden after a dispute over replacing the collapsed Goose River bridge.
Rockport processed lime rock for over 200 years and it’s great schooners lined the waterfront loaded cargoes of processed lime or ice ready for export to distant ports all over the world.
Rockport’s most famous schooner the Fredrick Billings towered more than three stories tall from the keel to the deck . Weighing over 2600 tons this 4 masted schooner was built out in the open at the head of Rockport Harbor in less than a year!
We will explore the history of magical Indian Island lighthouse as we sail by and learn what lead to Rockport’s decline and the private sale Indian Island light in 1934.
Learn About Maine’s Lobstering industry and why Penobscot Bay is the best in the state. We’ll tell you about the life cycle of your favorite crustacean.
With a prevailing afternoon southerly breeze Heron will take the Penobscot Bay in her stride and head towards Robinson’s Rock, home of the famous Andre the seal. With favorable wind and tide we can sail close to the ledges and often see dozens and sometimes hundreds of seals asking on the ledges.
Complimentary cookies will make for a perfect way to spend an afternoon aboard this legendary classic on the magnificent Penobscot Bay. Sailing daily mid-June through early October. 
Beer, wine and soda available for sale on board
