Maine Boatbuilders Show

Come visit us this weekend at the Maine Boatbuilders Show at the Portland Sports Complex (512 Warren Ave, Portland, ME 04103). Our affiliated nonprofit foundation, Dirigo Marine Learning Center (DMLC), will be raffling a 2001 Caillou Canoe & Slick Ryder Trailer to help raise funds to provide scholarships for students to participate in our five-day sailing trips on the New England coast!

Spring 2019 Haul Out

Despite Monday's Nor'easter, we kept with our original plan and hauled Harvey Gamage today. Over the next few weeks, we'll be doing maintenance and repairs to get ready for our upcoming season.

All Covered Up

Harvey Gamage is ready for the snow!

An Honor to Fly

Thank you, Captain Gus Karlsen, for donating a new US flag to be flown from our stern.

Preparing for 2019

We're forgoing this year's fall and winter seasons to instead prepare the ship for next year's programs.

Ship, Shipmate, Self

A volunteer designed and painted custom weatherboards for the ship, and we absolutely love them!

Former Student Published

Our former Science and Sea alumna, Madison Li, was inspired to publish her first article in The Scientific Teen after visiting the Darling Marine Center during our program.

From Provincetown to Monhegan Island

It’s been our busiest season yet aboard Harvey Gamage, and we’d like to thank all our students, volunteers, educators and partner organizations who have helped keep us sailing all summer long.

It’s a Squidpocalypse!

After spending a week at the dock completing maintenance projects and getting some much-deserved downtime, our crew was ready for our final week at sea.

Sail Portsmouth 2018

Thank you to everyone who participated in our many day and evening cruises at Sail Portsmouth this past week.

Scouts at Sea

We had our first week-long program with the Pine Tree Council Boy Scouts of America and Tall Ships Portland Sea Scouts.

STEM on the Coast

This week-long program, in partnership with Baxter Academy for Technology and Science, focused on both sail training and teaching students about the ecology and economy on the coast of Maine.  

Learning the Ropes

Our first summer sail training voyage saw students from Yarmouth High School and South Portland High School’s Alternative Education program sailing from Boothbay Harbor to Provincetown and back up to Portland during a week at sea.

Thank You All

Thank you to the crew, volunteers, students, and anyone else who was a part of our fall 2017 to spring 2018 season aboard Harvey Gamage.

Part of the Adventure

After a rough crossing from Cuba to Key West, we picked up a group of sail trainees for a 10-day voyage.

Final Night in Cuba

On the final night together in Cuba, our cook Shanna prepared a special goodbye dinner.

Clearing Customs in Cuba

The Harvey Gamage entered Marina Hemingway and tied up alongside a concrete dock painted bright blue.  This was the customs and immigration building for the ship to enter Cuba.
