Sailing through the Islands of Maine

One of the best ways to explore coastal Maine is on an historic Windjammer cruise.

Maine is known for its seafood and charming fishing villages, but it’s also a destination will thousands of islands to explore. Few know that Maine more than 4,600 islands off the coast, including Great Duck Island, Little Duck Island, Black Island and many more.

Some celebrities call the islands home, while other island have only a few local residents who must reach their homes by boat. Maine has a ferry system which provides access to some of the islands, but in my view, the best way to see this beautiful part of coastal Maine is by windjammer cruise.

My boyfriend and I recently sailed with the Schooner American Eagle, part of the historic Maine Windjammer Association. It was an experience we won’t soon forget!
