Schooner Yacht Heron offers three types of daily sails, a private morning sail, an afternoon Educational Eco Tour, and a Happy Hour Sunset Sail. Each provides a unique opportunity to see and discover the rugged Maine coast from the water.
Private Morning Sail
As Schooner Heron becomes increasingly popular, we are working hard to provide a variety of themes for our different quality day sails on Penobscot Bay. We are now offering a great new very reasonably priced daily option of a PRIVATE MORNING SAIL for your group large or small. See the bay and island’s birds, seals and porpoise with stunning vistas of the Camden Hills. Enjoy morning coffee and pastries.
Educational Eco Tour
As we set sail with environmental educator Bonnie Schmidt, she will present an excellent educational narrative about the history of Rockport Harbor. We will learn about Indian Islands historic light, lobstering, processing of lime, ice, shipbuilding and the story of famous Andre the Seal. If wind and tide are in our favor, we will head to Robinson’s Rock, the birthplace of Andre the Seal. On low tide we often see a large colony of harbor seals in their natural habitat. With a fresh afternoon breeze, Schooner Heron will take the bay in her stride and mesmerize us all on a memorable sail across the Penobscot Bay.
Education Eco Sails daily mid-June through mid Oct. It can get chilly on the boat, so be sure to bring extra layers as needed.
Happy Hour Sunset Sail
This is a truly unique sailing experience. A perfect opportunity to sail the Penobscot Bay and see the setting sun behind Beech Hill. Enjoy good food, good company and great sailing. One comp rum punch with chips and salsa* served! Craft beer, local wine and rum punch $5 for sale on board.
