*Please note that the Cotinga has completed her 2015 sailing season - see you next summer!
Maine has some of the most beautiful coastline found anywhere in the world and to see it from the ocean is a wonderful experience. We offer a range of pre-scheduled and custom sailing trips aboard our beautiful 46-foot sailing yacht.
“Cotinga” was built in 1999 by the world renowned Morris Yachts in Southwest Harbor, Maine. She is designed to be a rugged ocean going yacht and with her former owner has crossed the Atlantic twice and competed in numerous Newport to Bermuda races.
Gloria and Mike, are former research scientists now embarking on a whole new career. We have over 20 years of sailing experience, including having sailed the entire coast of Maine in a 16ft sailboat and now both of us hold Masters licenses. We bought “Cotinga” in the spring of 2012 and spent the following year living aboard and sailing from Maine to the Bahamas and back. During the off-season we live in Massachusetts where Mike also works as a professional photographer. We love the coast of Maine, the beautiful scenery and fabulous wildlife, and our aim is to give every customer a wonderful trip that they will always remember
Ocean explorer 6 hours $95 pp; Experience more open waters - make a significant passage, perhaps to Seguin Island or across Casco Bay to Jewel Island.
Ocean explorer + Hiking 8 hours $115 pp; In addition to a significant passage - land on shore - hike the trails or in the case of Seguin visit the light – note that landing on Seguin requires that a temporary mooring is available in Seguin cove.
Sunset cruise 2 hours $40 pp; Nothing compares to a good sunset from the water! We will aim to sail – we may drop anchor for a while – just soak up the atmosphere and we will return you to dry land in time for your dinner.
