Welcome to the Boat Cruises in Camden, Maine Page !
Maine and the windjammer fleet go hand in hand. Nowhere else in North America will you find such a large, historic fleet of traditional sailing vessels. Thousands of wild and pristine islands dot the Maine coast, providing unlimited anchorages for the windjammers. Wildlife abounds, with bald eagles, porpoises and seals sighted on every cruise. In the fleet’s home waters of Penobscot Bay, there are hundreds of anchorages just waiting to be explored. The Maine Windjammer Association is comprised of 13 windjammer sailing vessels.
If you’re looking to get off the beaten path, to explore where the big ships can’t go, a Maine windjammer can get you there.

Educational The lobster cruise on the Lively lady Too in Camden is a must for those who want to fully experience this part of Maine's culture.This very most interesting 2-Hour cruise is aboard the lobster boat LIVELY LADY TOO with her captain, Alan Philbrick. In addition to seeing the breathtaking sights on the bay, you'll learn about lobsters and sea life. For people who wish to see authentic lobster fishing The captain hauls up traps, takes out the live lobsters, bands them and makes comments. You'll learn whether the lobster is hard shell, soft shell, male or female. You'll learn the correct way it is measured and why fins have sometimes to be notched. You'll learn about its life cycle and how traps are baited and set, how the lobster fisherman makes his living and the skills and tools of the trade. Along with lobster, traps can contain, from day to day, a diverse variety of sealife. Sea Life Adventure As we travel out to the islands guests and crew look for dolphins. Our boat can go safely in close to the islands to see seals and different species of nesting birds (ospreys, bald eagles, many kinds of ducks and water birds) and two seal pupping areas to see the pups. We visit the pupping area where Andre the seal was born and talk about him.The captain explains the various habitats and the ecological relationships of the birds, seals, dolphins and fish. No two trips are the same, but they are always full of the beauty and wonder of coastal Maine. Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars.
