What to Expect Onboard:

The Schooner "Heron"  sailing charters are offered from Bequia or Union Island in the winter months and day sailing excursions in Rockport – Camen area of Maine in the summer months.

Heron is a famous, proven 65′ John Alden design that’s fast and comfortable with round the world capabilities. It is one of the most famous classic yachts of all time.

Heron is family built, owned and operated by the owners of Camden, Maine. She was built in 18 months to the 1928 plans of the famous yacht designer John G Alden. See the May/June 2004 WoodenBoat article of Schooner Heron’s construction.

The Schooner Heron is featured as “Sanderson’s Yacht” in the Johnny Depp film “The Rum Diary” based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson.

The winter season finds Schooner Heron in the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Sail with us on a week long adventure vacation among the islands of the Grenadines. Join her in Bequia or Union Island for an amazing island sailing experience.

White sandy beaches, colorful coral reefs, trade-wind sailing and delicious Caribbean food are only a few of the treasures you will find on a cruise on the Heron.
