Maine Adventures – Discover the lighthouses on a sailing cruise
If you’re looking for a unique day trip with your loved one, why not take a Maine Lighthouse Sailing Tour.
One of the many “experiences” available on Airbnb is a Saco Sail & Lighthouse tour.
According to the Airbnb listing, you and other guests will board the 42 inch sloop Mistress on the quays of Saco. Guests will tour the boat and receive a safety briefing. Then it’s time to set sail.
You will sail out of the mouth of the Saco River and into Saco Bay. The captain and crew will tell stories about the history of the Saco River and the islands of Saco Bay. You’ll even go up the coast to Old Orchard Beach.
Guests will board a small boat and travel to Wood Island. You will then walk the half mile wooden boardwalk to the lighthouse. You will have the opportunity to take a look into the lighthouse keeper’s house. You will even have the chance to walk the spiral staircase to the top of the lighthouse, where you will have the chance to see the coasts of Maine and New Hampshire.
During your excursion, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for Maine’s wildlife.
The experience lasts around four hours and costs around $ 400 per person.
