Acadia Dinner Cruise
The private dinner cruise to Islesford Dock Restaurant is the perfect night out. There is nothing like a sunset as seen from the sea. Artists and photographers will tell you the light here in Maine is amazing. The afternoon breeze gradually mellows as we sail past the rock-bound coast of Bear Island and the Cranberry Islands.
Enjoy a snack on board while the sun slips behind the Western Mountains of Acadia. Feel free to bring your own favorite beverages to enjoy this calmer, beautiful sailing experience. Porpoise and seals are commonly seen in the smooth water of a sunset sail.
Experience a scenic cruise aboard the wooden lobster boat Elizabeth T. before stopping at Little Cranberry Island, home to one of the Acadia region’s most unique dining experiences: the renowned Islesford Dock Restaurant. After enjoying a delicious dinner, steam back towards Mount Desert Island with the setting sun.
Sailing aboard a Friendship Sloop is a safe, comfortable experience immersed in history and Maine maritime heritage. These refurbished working vessels handle very well as they were designed without an engine to navigate the rocky coast of Maine in all seasons. The deep keel and wide beam keep them steady and safe but more importantly, all our trips sail within the protected waters of the Cranberry Islands, so there’s no big ocean swell or rough waves. The boats have large cushioned cockpits, ensuring plenty of room for guests. There is a small toilet on board and blankets for cool weather.
