Sailing adventures from Rockport Harbor take you into Penobscot Bay on the Maine Coast aboard Schooner Yacht HERON, a 65’ John Alden designed Classic Schooner Yacht. Experience the thrill of sailing a classic wooden schooner.

HERON is fast and steady as she sails among the pristine islands of Penobscot Bay. The Schooner Yacht HERON is truly the finest day sailor in the fleet.


Heron is a famous & proven design, is fast and comfortable with round the world capabilities. As a result, it is one of the most famous classic yachts of all time.

HERON is family built, owned and operated by the Bower family of Camden, Maine. Both Nigel (Twig) and Bonnie are 100 ton USCG licensed captains, having sailed extensively in the Gulf of Maine, trans-Atlantic and the Caribbean, sailing skiffs, schooners and square riggers. We have been doing tours from Rockport Harbor for more than 30 years. Daughters Elissa and Rachel have sailed on board since they were born. Heron has sailed over 100,000 sea miles since her launching in 2003.

The Johnny Depp film “Rum Diary” based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson, featured the Schooner Heron  as “Sanderson’s Yacht”. It was quite a fun experience!
