WHERE DO WE MEET? Timberwind is located on the Maine Warf on Portland’s historic waterfront, not the Maine State Pier where we have previously departed from. Entrance to the Maine Wharf is located on Commercial Street, Portland, Maine, between Scales Restaurant (down the wharf a little bit at 68 Commercial Street) and RiRa Irish Pub (72 Commercial Street) You’ll go all the way to the end of the wharf, approximately 100 yards towards the waterfront, past Scales. You can’t miss Timberwind at the end of the dock.
Please keep in mind that this is the Maine Warf, not the Maine State Pier where we have previously departed from. Please keep in mind to have your required facemask on and be 6-feet distanced from other parties while waiting in line. We’ll be on the boat setting-up and will come to get you when we’re ready to board you. You’ll receive a more detailed email a few days before your wine sail.
