The event

Join MCHT president and CEO Kate Stookey for our annual celebration on an evening cruise from Southwest Harbor to enjoy the beauty of the conserved land you help make possible as a member of The President’s Circle and MCHT’s Next Wave Circle. We’ll celebrate the great successes of 2021 and raise a toast to the future at Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

Our route

We’ll depart from the float at Hinckley Yachts in Southwest Harbor and plot a leisurely course that highlights the breadth of conservation work MCHT has played a part in – MCHT preserves, partnership projects, and conservation easements.

The boat

There will plenty of room to celebrate aboard the 122-foot Friendship V, chartered for the evening from Bar Harbor Whale Watches. The boat features two cabins and three decks.

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served on board. (And yes, we’ll be serving Peggy Rockefeller’s signature caviar torte. It wouldn’t be a proper celebration without it!).

Weather cancellation

If the trip is cancelled due to foul weather in the forecast, we’ll notify you by email 24 hours in advance.
