Incredible, enjoyable and unforgettable. Went on the inaugural foodie cruise on the schooner Stepen Taber, co-sponsored by Downeast Magazine. First night was an olive oil and balsamic tasting at Fiore in Rockland and dinner at Rockland's "In Good Company." Then five days sailing to islands in Penobscot Bay, chocolate class with Black Dinah Chocolates, luncheon with food historian Sandy Oliver,... More

We went on a 4-day schooner trip and loved every moment of it: the great crew and captain, the evening apps and wine-pairings, the delicious and gourmet meals cooked in a wood-burning oven...and the rest of the guests were delightful. It was an amazing adventure that we have already planned to book again.

Let me tell you I have had 3 different occasions with my boys over a 3 year time . The last one was on the Stephen Tabor. If your looking for a 5 star hotel room, you will not find it on any schooner. To see the last review in a injustice to say the least. The sleeping quarters are... More

I've been on the Stephen Taber 3 times now, and the experience never fails to disappoint, I now dream all year about my upcoming summer vacation on the schooner. I go by myself, but no matter, because everyone is my friend in a short time. I'm a big foodie, and the food is impressive, its expertly prepared and best of... More

We went sailing on the Stephen Taber for the third time this past June. It has gotten better each time. Keep in mind that this is not a luxury cruise. The cabins are small and there are two "heads" (bathrooms) for about 25 people. That being said, I don't think there is a better way to spend four days than... More

We just completed our 20th week on the Schooner Stephen Taber. Do we love it? Well yes. What's not to like? Historic vessel, outstanding Captain--Noah, wonderful crew, top chef--Anna, and a wine guide not to be missed--Jane. I guess I have one complaint--six days and no sailing in the fog? Come on, this is Maine. 6 perfect days, oh my.... More

I recommend the schooner Stephen Taber highly. It was lots of fun. I've worked in the hospitality industry and traveled often in many parts of the world. This is a great experience from all points of consideration. All ages enjoyed the trip. All-in-all, "fun" is the best single word to report. Bring: camera, appetite (excellent chef on-board)

Just finished the annual gourmet trip with Chef James of the Frog and Turtle and what an outstanding time it was. Anna the regular chef is great but this was a special treat. A cruise on the Taber is always wonderful. This was our second time. Captain Noah is a great host as well as a very skilled sailor and... More

I had a fantastic time on the Stephen Taber. Captain Noah Barnes and his crew did everything to make it a fun and comfortable trip. I was worried about the on deck shower but it turned out fine. It was very private. The cabins are small but the beds are comfortable. I slept like a baby every night. The food... More

This sail ruined us, I mean absolutely RUINED US for lobster, gourmet food, and overall pampered vacations in general. We have sailed and eaten all over this hemisphere and nothing else comes close. Captain Noah and his Crew are incredibly accommodating, the hands-on sailing varied from guest to guest but was as much as each individual wanted, and the food...and... More
