Special Events
We hope you'll join us aboard the Heritage this season. Every trip is special. The food is delicious with fresh local produce, herbs grown in our garden and bread, cookies and cakes freshly baked aboard. Each trip we enjoy a lobster cookout on a pristine island beach. Your hosts, Capts. Doug and Linda, are recognized maritime historians and will talk about the islands, vessels and people of the area and the many lighthouses we see. Wildlife abounds with marine mammals as well as birds, both ashore and at sea. Best of all you can enjoy sailing aboard a schooner built with your comfort in mind.

We feel that the best cruise is one with no itinerary. However, we do participate in some special events that are always fun for passengers and crew. They are listed in our Sailing Schedule, below — click underlined event for details.
