There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as setting out into clear blue waters aboard a multi-masted sailing ship. The smell of the sea, the creaking of the ropes as the wind catches the canvas, transporting you across the waters and into a slower paced world of sun dappled waves.
Add in gorgeous views of Maine’s famous coast and you have a Kennebunkport sailing tour to a ‘t.’
A Kennebunkport sailing tour will take you out into the Gulf of Maine to see whales, dolphins, lobster boats, and the coastal estates of the rich and the famous. Two hour sailing tours are the most common and popular – but you don’t have to stop there!
Book a full-day cruise to enjoy the sights with family and friends or enjoy a more romantic, quiet time with an intimate, sunset excursion. Some companies even offer week-long trips, for those after full-immersion.
Have a specific trip in mind? Private charters customize your Kennebunkport sailing tour to match your dreams and desires of a shipboard picnic, cruise to a dockside restaurant, Maine island, or other specific sight-seeing desires.
For those interested in learning the ins and outs of sailing, some Kennebunkport sailing tours may allow you to lend a hand with some of the tasks while you’re aboard, as well as explain some of the details of the art of sailing during your cruise. Many even offer special programs specifically aimed at teaching you to sail your own ship.
Regardless of the kind of Kennebunkport sailing tour you choose, one thing is for sure: you’re about to embark on a rewarding experience you’ll remember for a lifetime!
