We sailed on the Eastwind on a beautiful June afternoon. Captain Gil and Doris Smith were delightful hosts who took us on a tour of Boothbay Harbor. We had plenty of wind for smooth sailing. We were gliding through the water with only the sound of the wind in our sails. The Eastwind is a "must do" when in the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a trip through Schooner Eastwind during our yearly trip to Maine. This trip is so cheap (I think $32) for a 2 hour trip around Boothbay harbor & Squirrel Island and offers great views of some historic lighthouses and the beautiful Maine coastline. We also saw a couple seals. The boat itself is beautiful and... More

Not much wind on the afternoon we sailed, but a friendly, fun and knowledgeable captain, along with beautiful scenery, made for an experience we would be happy to repeat.

We chose Schooner Eastwind based on other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed! Our 2 hours in the harbor with Captain Gill and Carter were fun, informative and scenic. When I first called to book with a specific day in mind the person I spoke to was honest and told me the weather forecast was not looking in my... More

My wife and I have been to the Boothbay Harbor area in Maine for a week in July over the past 4 Summers and finally decided to take a sailing trip on the Schooner Eastwind. I must admit that I was very pleasantly surprised with the trip and enjoyed the trip immensely. The Crew was very professional and a great... More

My siblings, parents, and I enjoyed the tour immensely. Bob and Captain Gil were very entertaining and amiable. The boat is beautiful and well-conditioned. If you like sailing and sight seeing than this is a perfect tour for you!

My husband and I sailed on the Schooner Eastwind last week. Everything about it was fantastic. Cindy, who took our reservation, was so helpful. Sean, the Ship's Captain, was fantastic. He was a skilled captain as well as a most hospitable host. He and his first hand, Gerry, made sure that everyone was comfortable and told us about all of... More

We knew it would be an enjoyable 2 hours. But, we didn't expect to have the boat's owner onboard giving such detailed an interesting local factoids. And, our skipper knew just where to take the rig. Those helping with the sails had a grand time, too. You can bring your own snacks & beverages onboard! Highly recommend this very reasonably... More

A relaxing and fun 2 hours on the water with my wife and son! Captain Gil was a pleasure to talk to and bob was an encyclopedia of knowledge. My son got to man the wheel for a few minutes, we helped raise the sails which real made this trip special! We saw a bald eagle and the moms nest... More

I've been on some of these kinds of trips before and I don't think we actually sailed. Not this one! Real sailing on a real boat! The captain said the wind and crowd was perfect to push the boat a little and wow! I had no idea sailing could be so exciting! If you go, pick a windy day and... More
