Hoss is boss! He's also the captain's dog who loves to sail. We've gone on two sails with them last summer. It's a relaxing way to take a trip on the river,to the Atlantic and then view Walker's Point. Enjoyed talking with the crew,relaxing in the sunshine and having a fun sailing trip with my husband. Can't wait to go... More

We really enjoyed sailing up the coast of Kennebunkport, ME and seeing all the coast line and former president Bush's Kennebunkport home. The Captain was great and answered any questions the we all had. When we return to Kennebunkport, we will be looking up the Schooner Eleanor again! I only wish the cruise lasted longer than two hours...

I was lucky enough to be able to go out on Eleanor's last trip of the season. The weather was kind and the views stunning. The crew were excellent hosts and Eleanor sails beautifully and silently.

Captain Rich Woodman and his crew make this a very enjoyable time. We have done both the afternoon and evening salings. Both are wonderful, but Hoss (the boat dog) does not do the evening sailing. This year we did the afternoon sailing. Captain Rich knows a great deal about boats, sailing and Kennebunkport. There is water aboard as well as... More

So folks, I'm not sure if this is an accurate review, but I just wanted to pass along our thoughts about the Schooner Eleanor which we saw sailing elegantly past Walkers Point two Thursdays ago while staying in the area. We drove to the dock , but the night sail that evening and the next two sails the following day... More

August 27, 2014 This was a totally great experience. The boat is perfect. The crew was friendly, helpful, and knew a great deal about the area. The weather was perfect. The scenery was spectacular. Really added to our enjoyment of the trip to Maine in a big way.

Excellent sightseeing tour of the Kennebunkport coastline. No matter what your age, you'll enjoy this tour. Crew was very accommodating and professional.

From the time we were greeted by the very lovely Kate, the attentive crew and Capt. Rich, my Mother and I had a great time. We visited on Saturday Aug. 28th for the first sailing of the day. The narration we received of the local sites and the use of binoculars was very good. Would highly recommend to all who... More

We went in early August and had a wonderful time. The captain and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. We brought a bottle of wine and have a very relaxing Maine experience before going to dinner in Kennebunkport. I highly recommend it!

Great experience sailing out of the coast. Captain and crew were informative and helpful. They let you bring food and drinks so go at 4 and enjoy beers before dinner. I liked how they wouldn't go if it was foggy saying how they wanted everyone to enjoy it. Highly recommend it worth the money
