Beautiful day and the Captain shared so much information during our ride - he was so interesting! The ship was nice, clean and comfortable.

We took the 1-hour bay tour and it was really lovely. The boat was quite nice, well kept and the crew was very helpful and nice. The tour was very interesting and it gave us plenty of information about Boothbay and its surroundings. The price is OK as well. I definitely recommend it!

Nice day trip. Couple hours ride out and back, 2 1/2 hours on the island. Nice, relaxing trip. A real getaway from it all.

Excellent tour. Trip out to Burnt Island was nice but tour on island, with reenactment actors for Lighthouse family was very very good. Beautiful views, beautiful island. Wish I had a boat so I could visit on our own just to hang out, picnic on island and go in water along the small beach or off the dock. Great experience... More

The vessel Baimy Day II has inside and outside seating totaling about 120 people. Restroom and food service on board. 1 1/2 hr cruise each way. 4 hrs on island. Bring comfortable walking shoes. There are no cars or paved roads on Monhegan. The trails are narrow and steep, but worth the effort for the views on the cliffs. Several... More

Sailing aboard a Friendship Sloop was so relaxing and peaceful! I could have been out there all day! It was a great way to enjoy the coastline.

Beautiful Boothbay Harbor in a small package, for a reasonable price. Cruise starts at main pier in the harbor, takes you out by Southport Is. and docks at Squirrel Is. for passengers, then back to the harbor. A little narration, a very pleasant trip on a fair day.

We went sailing on the Bay Lady. The one and one-half hour tour of the harbor was beautiful. A good introduction to the harbor sights. The captain seemed skillful as she maneuvered about the boats and islands in the harbor.

Went on the sailing cruise aboard the Bay Lady. The captain was very knowledgeable about what we were seeing but did stay quiet once we were out to sea so that we could enjoy the sail. It was so relaxing!

We used Balmy Day Cruises as means to get to Monhegan Island for the day. For something that we considered just a mode of transportation, it turned out to be very nice. The boat is large and clean with seating outside or inside. The boat is equipment with underwater "wings" to keep it more stable. It was a very wavy... More
