Climb aboard and experience the fascinating legends of our New Hampshire/Maine Seacoast. Little known but historically crucial, the legendary Isles of Shoals, located 6 miles of our coast, are an intriguing archipelago of 9 islands steeped with history. Explored by Captain John Smith in the 1600's these Isles became famous for their large schools of "shoaling" fish. Fisherman flocked to these tiny islands and at one point it was the richest settlement of the new world. Over the centuries, these rugged Isles claimed fame with pirates, ghosts and buried treasure. Along with the first grand summer resort hotel, a famous poetess and her beautiful gardens and an "infamous" murder. The moonlight murder of Smuttynose is the basis of a New York Times best selling novel and major motion picture.

Cruises run from early May to mid-October.
