I can't say enough good things about Joel Rowland and his beautiful boat. He was incredibly helpful and responsive from the start as we planned our morning charter. And the day of, he tailored the experience to exactly what we wanted, and so much more! Sailing with Joel is the best way to see the area around North Haven Island,... More

FIVE STARS ON EVERY LEVEL - Joel Rowland (captain) took my children and I, and my friend and her children sailing on Penobscot Bay by Vinylhaven Maine. It was a special day all around. The boat performed very well, and Joel was a skilled sailor as well as safety minded, and an excellent tour guide and teacher. He showed the... More

Took a couple of sail excursions with family and all of us loved them! Great for island exploration around North and Vinal Haven.

I have been taking day or half-day sails with Captain Joel Rowland on the Tammy Norie for many years. As a veteran of many charter sails, I have to say that this is the best and most pleasurable -- sailing on the Tammy Norie with Joel is simply magical. Joel knows the geography and history of the Fox Islands and... More

My cousin and I had a fantastic sailboat ride around Penobscot Bay with Blue Yonder Sailing. We took off from North Haven harbor and went around the big and small islands in the Bay. Captain Joel Rowland's beautiful boat is a smooth and comfortable ride, and he makes sure his passengers are warm and having fun. Joel also points out... More

From the moment we stepped on the Tammy Norie, we felt welcomed and right at home. Joel and Amy are so comfortable to be around and work together seamlessly, like a well choreographed dance. We were welcome to take the helm, raise a sail, or just sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery. Wonderful day, wonderful boat, wonderful people! Can't... More

Blue Yonder Sail Charters was an incredible experience. The captain (Joel) and first mate (Amy) are wonderful hosts. Incredibly competent, yet relaxed and personable, they made our outing (6 friends) a truly unforgettable experience. We are so grateful for our day on the water with Joel and Amy. We'll never forget seeing Maine from your beautiful vessel!

Our 7 hour sail on the Tammy Norie with Joel and Amy was amazing! Joel's quiet and calm demeanor puts you at ease instantly and before you know it your muscles are relaxed and you are experiencing the breathtaking beauty of the ocean..8 eagles, porpise, seals, guillemots!! Don't know what those are? No worries, Joel is so knowledgeable about the... More

It's not everyday that you get to "work" while on a beautiful sailboat off the coast of Maine, but that's what we certainly did. Our captain, Joel, was extremely knowledgeable about wind direction (hair getting blown in the face, etc.) as well as setting up shots for a scenic background. His smooth driving made the shoot one of the easiest... More
