Cruise Maine

Find your own private anchorage among Maine’s 4,600 islands. 

Whether you’re an annual visitor to Maine’s waters or you’ve never had the opportunity to cruise the coast, you’ll find a place on the water to make your own.

Miles of Pristine

Maine will give you a wonderful far-away feeling while you remain close to everything.

With thousands of miles of uninhabited shoreline to explore, you’ll feel like you’re in your own magical world while you’re cruising the coast. Find exclusive anchorages, remote swimming holes, and secret beaches. Drop anchor and ride your dinghy into shore to take a hike through island trails. Then enjoy the sun setting over pine-covered granite cliffs from the deck of your boat.
