Visit our historic watercraft from a bygone era! Sail from Bar Harbor aboard the 151-foot Schooner Margaret Todd for a spectacular 1-1/2 to 2 hour Windjammer cruise among the islands of Frenchman’s Bay. The only 4-masted schooner to work New England waters in over half a century, the Margaret Todd sails 3 times daily from the Bar Harbor Inn Pier. You won’t want to miss this unique Maine experience.

The Morning Sail at 10:00 AM is a 2-hour cruise of Frenchman Bay. Have a hand helping us hoist the sails or just relax and enjoy the ride. Bring your binoculars!

The Afternoon Sail at 2:00 p.m. is generally a livelier, more exhilarating sail among the islands of Frenchman Bay, because of the stronger afternoon sea breezes. This cruise features an interesting narrative provided by a Park Ranger of local history, geographical points, and wildlife, as we look for bald eagles, seals and porpoises!

The Sunset Sail is our most popular sail – romantic and fun! We often have live folk music, guitar, fiddle, or banjo music. Bring the whole family! Be sure to call us to confirm the time for this trip, since it changes throughout the season.

About the Weather…

Weather in Maine is changeable-not only from day to day, but from place to place. It is not at all surprising to find quite different conditions in two coastal locations less than 50 miles apart. As Mark Twain put it,

“I reverently believe that the Maker who made us all makes everything in New England but the weather. I don’t know who makes that, but I think it must be some raw apprentices in the weather-clerk’s factory…”

Having said that, please be aware that we sail in a variety of weather conditions. This includes cloudiness, drizzle and fog. It is afterall, life on the coast of Maine.

All Cruises are Dog Friendly! Our most popular crew member is Maggie.
