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

My family has been chartering an afternoon on the Pineapple Ketch every summer for more than 5 years. It is a great boat with plenty of space to spread out and catch some rays. The crew is top notch and so friendly. Once the boat clears the harbor area, the coastal views are amazing. This past summer we even saw... More

Only four passengers on the ship. We had a great captain and mate. They were friendly and competent. The weather was perfect and the seas were gentle. Two hour cruise on a beautiful day - we got there ten minutes before and there was no wait.

Captain John offers a great 2 hour sail out of Kennebunkport. Great fun to view Walkers Point (The Bush Compound) from the sea. The Pineapple Ketch with its 40ft and 4 sails provides a real sailing experience. The captain and crew are real pros and do a great job answering the many questions of young and old alike! Thanks for... More

My husband and I enjoyed a nice, relaxing sail at sunset. We would have preferred an adults-only option for a sunset sail, but for the price ($40 pp) it was definitely worth the trip. Bring a blanket, wine and cheese, and enjoy! The Captain and first mate were very kind... they didn't talk your ear off with useless information... unless... More
