When it comes to tours, nothing is quite as romantic or exhilarating as a Kennebunkport sailboat cruise. The smell of the sea and the creaking of the rigging add a depth to your experience that other kinds of tours can never hope to achieve. Kennbunkport sailing tours offer incredible views of the Maine coast. Lighthouses, dolphins, lobster boats, sunsets, famous coastal estates, and more.
Most Kennbunkport sailing cruises are two hours long with a set itinerary but full-day cruises and other trips can often be chartered. Most companies offer sunset cruises, cocktail sailings, island exploring, and other special sailing trips.
Your Kennebunkport sailboat cruise doesn’t have to be a passive experience, either. Some tour companies will allow you to haul lines, raise sail, and take a turn at the helm, and more. Of course, no one will complain if you’d prefer to simply sit back and soak in the view!
