Everything aboard the Taber is included, so kick back and allow us to show you true hospitality.

This is Included

A sailing adventure aboard the Taber is an all-inclusive vacation. From your first cup of coffee in the morning to the last morsel of dessert after dinner, we have you taken care of.

We make a point to not up-charge our guests for anything. In fact, we offer a dedicated ice box should you wish to bring additional beverages and snacks aboard.

Optional are the $20 parking fee per vehicle per trip and the customary 10% gratuity for our hard-working crew.

Your trip with us includes:

  • all meals except for dinner on boarding night
  • wine served every evening, personally selected by our in-house wine expert Jane Barrett Barnes
  • a traditional lobster bake and beach barbecue
  • daily excursions exploring Maine’s unspoiled beauty
  • on-board entertainment on select evenings.
