Day Sails on Penobscot Bay

Join Captain Bob Pratt, marine biologist and Master Maine Guide, aboard the beautiful 55' ketch Morning In Maine, as he points out the natural and historic features unique to Penobscot Bay.

Enjoy the beauty of the Maine coast from the deck of Morning In Maine. Relax and watch the seabirds and harbor seals as the ketch glides through the waters of Penobscot Bay ... Or lend a hand in sailing the boat. On most trips we see Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse and Owls Head Lighthouse as well as Maine's historic schooners. Monday morning is generally the best time to watch the schooners as they sail out of the harbor for their week long cruises.
