2-Hour Private Sailing Charter

2-Hour Private Sailing Charter

There's something absolutely magical about traditionally-rigged wooden sailing vessels. Perhaps it's the epiphany that centuries-old technology can still be perfectly in harmony with our modern world. Or perhaps it's something else. Either way, we know you will fall under HESPER's spell the moment she sets sail. 2 hours will let you escape the hustle of the city and Portland Harbor, but still allow time for other activities. See lighthouses, historic stone fortresses, and the beauty of Casco Bay's islands. Relax on deck, or try your hand (with the help of our crew) at handling the rigging and learning how HESPER harnesses the wind. Book ONE TICKET for a group of up to 6.
