Sailing Vessel Alondra


Plan your perfect combo; a little heritage and history while enjoying a unique, outdoor excursion. Spend time aboard the lovely 47 ft. gaff-rigged ketch, Alondra with Robert N. Macomber as your historical guide. These trips sell out fast, so best to go ahead and call, even if it’s marked “SOLD OUT” to get your name on the WAITLIST. Then, if any seats open up or when future dates are established, you’ll be the first to get a call.
