Welcome To Hinckley Yacht Charters
Imagine yourself snug at anchor in a secluded cove as the morning light reaches Cadillac Mountain, or sailing up Somes Sound, the only fjord in the East, with the wind at your back. Cruising in Maine is an experience you will always remember. The quiet beauty of our waters invites a closeness to nature which is hard to find elsewhere...peaceful mornings spent watching seals, loons, and eider ducks...sunny afternoons running with the wind along a coastline unmatched for its rugged beauty...clear nights under a canopy of stars feasting on the worlds best mussels and lobster.
Cruising In Maine
With over 3000 islands and 3500 convoluted miles of coastline, Maine offers a lifetime of cruising possibilities. One of the best things about sailing our waters is the vast number of coves and harbors available for exploration. This allows the freedom to take long or short hops with a harbor almost always within reach. We have found that our most enjoyable cruises were ones in which the distance traveled during the day was limited to give us plenty of time to enjoy the many coves, islands, and harbors along the way.
Maine has a rich history of outer island life around the turn of the century, so don't be surprised to find a long forgotten cellar hole on a seemingly deserted island. Take some time to pick blueberries, take a hike, do some bird watching (ospreys, eagles, cormorants, etc.) and, if you're lucky, spy a whale, some white-sided dolphins, or harbor seals.
Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island offers miles of hiking trails, cliffs and beaches, views from mountain tops, lakes, glacial formations, gardens, museums, and carriage roads. Much of this popular park can be visited from a cruising boat.
