“This should be #1 thing to do in SACO ME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Capt John emulates the whole "Maine experience", right down to the stories, the accent, and his passion for sailing. Brought our small cooler and enjoyed a great family sailboat experience.

“A perfect Maine afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

There are few things better than spending an afternoon out on the water in Maine on a picture-perfect blue sky day. Spending it on a beautiful wooden sailboat is the best! Capt. John and 1st mate Emma were wonderful - very capable and full of information about the area, the boat and sailing but when we wanted to just sit back and enjoy the ride and the food and drinks we brought on board they just blended into the background. We had a very smooth ride on a very windy day and saw jumping sturgeons, a porpoise and a minke whale. Quite a day!

“Fun, Intimate Sailboat Experience on Lovely Saco Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

We’ve taken visitors on schooner tours of Portland’s Casco Bay, which is a very nice trip. When we learned that Saco Daysails was offering trips of Saco Bay, we were anxious to check out that alternative, too. We loved this experience. Captain John’s 37-foot wooden sailboat is a beauty, and the best thing about it is that he only takes 6 passengers, as opposed to the several dozen the larger schooner companies carry. While there might not be quite as much to see in Saco Bay as there is in Casco Bay, it’s still a lovely trip, with the chance to see seals, Wood Island Lighthouse, islands, and the beautiful homes along the shore of Biddeford Pool. And the intimacy of being part of a small group and being able to talk freely to Captain John is terrific. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks aboard, too.

If the winds are brisk and the skies are bright, it’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours than on a Saco Daysails cruise.
