Bufflehead is a 32' wooden gaff sloop; safe, swift and seaworthy. We also offer overnight trips aboard a 33' schooner, Advent.
Short trips take in Rockland's active harbor and broad protected bay out past Rockland's Breakwater Lighthouse to Owl's Head light, featuring views of the Camden Hills and many islands. Longer trips can reach islands in the Muscle Ridges or across the Bay, with hiking, picnicing and lobsterbake options. Multi-day trips range Penobscot Bay, and beyond to Mt Desert Island and Isle au Haut.
Sailing out by schooners and fishing boats, lighthouses, seals, and then...what would you like?
