"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
Captain Brenda Thomas of the Isaac H. Evans The Isaac H. Evans is an historic Maine Windjammer and a national landmark moored at the North End Shipyard in Rockland, ME.

Join us for a single-night or multi-night Maine sailing adventure on Penobscot Bay, often called the best cruising grounds in the world. With Maine as a backdrop it's hard to go wrong; islands, lobster, lighthouses, eagles, osprey, seals, the occasional whale...the way life should be! Please browse our site and learn why sailing with us is the perfect choice for a safe and relaxing vacation adventure. We simply can't wait to share the Evans experience with you!

We have many different types of cruises and we are one of the only children-friendly schooners in the Maine windjammer fleet. Our atmosphere is casual, so kick off your shoes and go barefoot if you'd like. We don't stress education, but everyone learns something about nature, maritime history, and teamwork on a schooner. We even carry our own lobster traps and fishing poles! Anyone age 6 and older is welcome on any of our adventures; younger guests welcomed on a case-by-case basis. If you prefer to sail without children, consider joining us in June and September when younger sailors are in school.

We've found that more and more families are joining us for multi-generational celebrations; reunions, birthdays, and anniversaries. The Evans is also perfect for corporate retreats, weddings, and other special events.

Picture being anchored in a quiet harbor eating a delightful dinner on deck. Our combination of excellent food, knowledgeable crew, unmatched scenery and a magnificent vessel with modern conveniences, makes for an unforgettable sailing vacation. This season marks the 128th anniversary for the Evans and we hope you come celebrate with us!

We have berths for 22 eager adventurers per sail. Space is limited and it fills up quickly. We encourage you to reserve your berth as soon as possible. Only about 600 people will have the opportunity to experience the Evans this year - wouldn't you like to be one of them?
