I've had the amazing opportunity to go sailing on the beautiful vessel Tammy, around both Casco Bay and Penn Bay with friends and puppies. These remain among my most treasured memories of summertime in Maine. Can't recommend this charter enough! The captain is clearly very experienced and he makes for a enjoyable ride knowing you're in capable hands. Thank you... More

Joel is an excellent captain and valued friend. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Joel four years and have twice sailed aboard his meticulously maintained, very comfortable sailboat "Tammy Noire". Both times Joel’s first priority was maintaining the highest degree of safety for his passengers. In today's age of digital technology, anyone can navigate with a map. Joel moves beyond... More

Sailing around Maine's beautiful coast was a wonderful experience. Captain Joel was the perfect combination of captain and host. I would highly recommend a night or two with family and friends. This experience far exceeded my expectations! Enjoy.

Sailing with Joel on his beautiful wooden sloop is an experience that simply can not be beat. The Fox Islands are like no where else on the east coast, and there is no better way to see them than from the deck of a ship. Captain Joel is quite at home in these waters, and his knowledge of the area... More

Sailing the Tammy Norie with Joel was maybe the highlight of my most recent Maine trip. Tammy Norie is a gorgeous, classic boat, and with her distinctive burgundy sails she is well recognized in and around Penobscot Bay. If you're going to sail this historic area, you really should experience it in an actual wooden sailboat, not some fiberglass tub.... More

Tammy Norie is a amazing wooden boat. Anyone with the basic appreciation for sailing craft and the art of sailing, will find this vessel a true joy. To boot, Penobscot Bay may be the most amazing coastline anywhere in the world, from the long history, to the rugged mountains, to the people and communities the dot the islands. Tammy's recognizable... More

Captain Joel took us out for a leisurely afternoon cruise. It was incredibly relaxing - he took care of everything! I would highly recommend a sail with him; he is a confident captain with an easy-going attitude.

We were lucky enough to snag a last minute afternoon sailing charter with Joel and his excellent crew. We enjoyed a beautiful tour of the waters around North Haven while comfortably relaxing on the deck of Tammy Norie. Experienced, knowledgeable, and informative. We will be making this a tradition when we are visiting North Haven.

This was by far the best sailboat charter I have been on. Gorgeous views of the Fox Islands and many more in beautiful Penobscot Bay. Not only did I enjoy my trip but also learned a bit from the well established Captain Joel. A delight to cruise with him.

We sailed with Captain Joel for a week from Rockland to Stonington and back. The boat had plenty of room and was a blast to sail. The captain certainly knows his stuff and the waters having run Outward Bound sailing courses in them for many years. We learned more about sailing in 1 week than we did in 5 years... More
