We were a bit disappointed with the Pineapple Ketch cruise and thought it was pricey for what we got- a sail in and out, no commentary on any of the surroundings/ attractions/ town itself. Not even water was offered as a beverage. I have done similar boat trips elsewhere such as Newport and they were far superior. Skipper and crew... More

Decided to take a schooner sail on a very hot day with family. It was delightful! The two man crew were friendly, professional and informative. I would recommend this to anyone who has ever had an interest in sailing in the ocean off the coast of Kennebunkport.

We couldn't wait for our sunset sail as we had seen this ketch going by several times while on other vessels. Docking at the Nonantum Resort made it very convenient as we were staying there. Our captain was friendly, knowledgeable, and we felt safe in his competent sea-worthy hands. Sailing is a much different experience than other types of boats... More

Capt. Nick was very thorough in his safety briefing and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and history. First Mate Michael was very pleasant and accommodating delivering waters and offering dining suggestions. The trip was about 1.5 hours with the sails up for almost all that time. Fun time

We went in late October and while most businesses are shutting down in Kennebunkport the Pineapple Kerch will sail if you want to go! While it was a bit chilly, Phil the captain, had full control of the boat and made sure we had a good two hour sail. Highly recommend this.

This was our second sail on the Pineapple Ketch. The captain and mate were fantastic as always. Very informative, very lively and just an overall great atmosphere. I believe we were one of the last voyages before closing down for the season. If you have ever wanted to sail, this is a great experience. Don't miss it.

We are from Texas. West Texas to be exact. We have no ocean views or water views for that matter. When we traveled to Maine to celebrate our one yr anniversary we knew we wanted to be out on the water at some point. The Pineapple Ketch was amazing! There was a three person minimum to set sail, but my... More

When in Maine you MUST go out onto the water. The best way to do it is on a sailing ship. The Pineapple is a two mast based in Kennebunkport Maine. This is the best way to spend a couple of relaxing hours feeling the wind and the waves (light when we were sailing) and cruise up and down the... More
