Join us as a guest crew member aboard the Wanderbird as we reposition the vessel from Newfoundland all the way to Maine. We call this a Tramp Steamer Cruise in the spirit of the bygone era of coastal ferries and commercial ships that offered simple accommodations for adventurous guests as they delivered cargo & goods to remote coastal villages. You will meet us at the fishing wharves down at the Port aux Basques waterfront.

On this cruise you'll have the opportunity to stand watch, navigate with the captain, visit interesting ports such as: a remote Newfoundland outport community, Cape Breton Island, our home in the tiny village of TorBay, Lunenburg or Shelburne Nova Scotia as time and weather permit. Next we will make our crossing of the Bay of Fundy/Gulf of Maine where we are likely to see migrating whales and have avian hitchhikers aboard. We will finish our cruise in our home port of Belfast Maine.

This is a unique opportunity to experience a real taste of life at sea and to learn from highly experienced professional mariners on a well found little ship. Space is limited to 10.
