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

Joel and Amy took my wife and I for an epic sail one afternoon in July. My wife (eight months pregnant at the time) and I could not have had a more pleasurable experience...so comfortable and relaxing with just the right amount of excitement! We are looking forward to getting our daughter, who is almost two tears old out for... More

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
