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

We chartered the boat with a group of friends for a evening sail. The captain and first mate were very friendly, explained safety issues quickly but clearly, and were helpful in getting drinks and sweaters from below deck whenever they were needed. We took wine along and had a great sail around the coast. Great evening.

This was our second outing on the Pineapple Ketch, and it was quite calm... I would have to say that we preferred our first outing about three years ago. We loved our captain, and his charming first mate, but on the last outing the first mate was a young fellow who was so informational it was amazing - lots of... More

We had a couple of hours to fill before a destination wedding and this was a great way to enjoy some relaxing time in the sun. Captain and mate were polite, friendly and competent with the boat. Not much on tourist type info on what we were sailing past up the coast and not too much wind in this particular... More

What is better than a relaxing vacation to the Northeast? An even more relaxing sail on the waters off of Kennebunkport with Christo and crew (on our trip, it was Amanda). Christo and Amanda were amazingly friendly and down-to-earth, taking time to answer even the most simplistic of questions. They did not overwhelm us by talking the entire time, but... More

Captain Christos offers 3 two hour sails as well as the opportunity to charter his boat. We did the sunset cruise (5-7 PM, not quite sunset) on a warm, cloud-free day. He has 12 passengers on his sailboat with a crew of one other ( Amanda ). Leaving KBPT and going past many boats, St. Anne's church, Walkers Point and... More

My husband and I have had the pleasure of sailing with Captain Christos on several occasions and we've always enjoyed the sails immensely. The crew is friendly and knowledgeable with just enough commentary. It's a must when visiting Kennebunkport and well worth the money. We can't wait to do it again!

Captain Christos is an excellent sailor and host. The ketch is beautiful and welcoming. We had a large enough party to reserve the entire boat for an evening sail. We had excellent winds and a lively and fun sail. Everyone had a blast.
