Enjoyed going out with captain, crew and dog on a lovely afternoon. It is so relaxing once the motor goes off after leaving the harbor to just feel the air in the sails moving the boat. It is a relaxing trip up the coast of maine.

Whilst visiting Kennebunkport I called in to see if there was any room available for the trip. I was welcomed by the Skipper/owner, Woody, and fitted in on the next trip, half an hour later. There were a total of 20 on board with Woody and two crew members. All were friendly and the sailing was great; down the river... More

What could be better than sitting on a sail boat and having a crew of local sailing experts take you for tour of the port and shore line? The crew is more than willing explain and answer any questions you have about the area, the boat, and sailing. The tour was the perfect amount of time, long enough to get... More

We had a wonderful sailing tour. The staff is very friendly. It was our daughters boyfriend's first time sailing. They asked him to help out. He is now hooked! It was a fantastic 2 hour cruise. The captain has wonderful stories. Thank you Captain Rich!

This is a great way to spend a few hours and get a glimpse of the Maine coast from a different vantage point. The trip is easy, comfortable and in any seas, a real delight. The Captain and crew were easy going and there to provide any information that you would need. They provide bottles of water. Bring a hat...... More

This 2-hour sailing trip was a fun adventure! We were on the evening trip (4:30-6:30) which I would recommend! We had fantastic weather and a lovely group. The captain, Rich, and crew were knowledgeable and friendly! It was a smooth, peaceful sail that my husband and I really enjoyed! Rich's sweet dog comes along and calmly lays down the whole... More

On a lovely summer morn in July, we took a two hour cruise on the Schooner Eleanor. This was easily the best activity we had in town. It is an easy, wonderful way to see and enjoy the Maine coastline and get a great breeze. The two hours just flies by. The Eleanor heads north past Walker's Point a ways... More
