Went with my family of four (kids 12 and 14) and had a great mid-day trip. The owners have been doing tours for 40 years and are experienced husband/wife sailors having traveled around the world twice! They let us hoist up the sails and had many great historical facts about Boothbay and the surrounding waters. Worth the trip!

We visited Boothbay Harbor in June and sailed on the Schooner - Eastwind. What a wonderful time we had. Cap't Bob was great and his assistant Austin was awesome. We enjoyed the 2 hr. sail so much we went for a second sail at the end of the week. We had a different Cap't - Sean, but he was also... More

As a local resident of Boothbay Harbor, we try to take visiting friends to some of the most unique and rewarding attractions we know of.

We were able to reserve seats during the Windjammer week. We were so excited to be able to be on a schooner during that time. Unfortunately there where 2 things that went wrong on this trip. The first that only 2 large schooners showed up for this event. From talking with people that have gone every year they say it... More

Four of us had the great pleasure of joining Captain Sean and his mate Sally on Saturday June 2014. The weather was perfect. Captain Sean let me helm the wheel and took us on a terrific round trip out to the entrance of the harbor where we saw, harbor seals, eagles in their nest, Osprey and the most beautiful sunset...

Sean and Sally knew all the local history and fun folklore. They had the answer to EVERY question... knew all the islands, lighthouses, and boats. The lines and ropes and rigging... the in and out of the harbor... local marine beasties and local fowl persona... It was simply WONDERFUL... I'll do it again! Thanx Sean and Sally!!

This is a beautiful sailing excursion around the islands near Boothbay Harbor. We sailed with Captain Shaun who was amazing and a consummate professional. The boat is beautiful and sturdy. There was tons of room to spread out and relax. Lifelines were high and booms were largely out of the way so even a novice would feel safe. I wouldn't... More

We went on The Schooner Eastwind in July of 2013. It was a great trip, from helping to raise the sails to seeing a humpback whale as well as seals. The crew and captain were very friendly and helpful. It was just a really great trip,and would recommend it to anyone who loves to sail on a schooner.

A June evening, with a warm sun, and we headed out of the harbour towards a few of the islands. We saw seals, osprey and a nesting bald eagle. Doris was delightful and full of interesting facts. This is such a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. Highly recommended
