At a Glance

Explore Maine’s beautiful coast and its hundreds of islands aboard the 95-foot windjammer “Angelique.” A Maine experience since the 1930s, “windjamming” is unscripted cruising aboard a traditional sailing vessel. “Angelique” is a modern day windjammer made of steel-and-wood that serves as lodge, classroom and serene retreat. Departing from the beautiful town of Camden, “Angelique” drops anchor every evening in a picturesque harbor to let you explore a fishing village, a historic town, a beach, tide pool or an uninhabited island.
