      While many companies offer cruises on replicas of old schooners, the Portland Schooner Company has three such vessels actually built in the early Twentieth Century -- the oldest is the Wendameen, built in 1912. Take a relaxing two-hour tour of colorful Casco Bay, with lighthouses, old island forts, and other noteworthy sights. For an especially enchanting experience, take a sunset sail. The crew will answer your questions and fill you in on interesting details about your surroundings and the boat you are on, but will also allow you quiet time rather than overwhelming you with constant narration. You may bring along your own refreshments, including alcoholic beverages.

      If you go:
      The boats sail May through October with three or four sails daily, depending on season. Arrive at least 15 minutes early, and allow ample time to find parking. Go past the ferry terminal for boarding.
