I had the privilege of participating in Sunrise Boat Church this morning with Captains Abby, Bob and Shawn. Such a thoughtful group of people and a very experienced and courteous host. I am inexperienced in how to get on and off a boat but I had nothing to fear, these friends are experts in making their guests feel comfortable.

The dock is well lit, the parking is very inexpensive and the dock well lit and welcoming, even at 4:00 a.m.

We sailed out into Biddeford Pool for a thoughtful and spirit-filled message to the backdrop of the rising sun. Rev. Abby is an amazing and thoughtful pastor with a message that was just what my soul needed to hear. Upon returning to the dock, I felt compelled to just sit and contemplate the beautiful morning and the message I heard while listening to sounds of the harbor waking up to greet a new day.

If you want a unique worship experience, you must try Sunrise Boat Church with Broad Reach Sailing and Maine Tuna Fishing (Miss Megan II).

Can't say enough about our 2 hour sail boat ride with Captain John at the helm and 1st mate Sally who has so much knowledge of Bar Harbor and wild life. Between John and Sally with may stories of the sea, people living there,and a song from John made this sailing one in a life time. We will always remember that wonderful afternoon.

Absolutely great experience. We ask for a more "adventurous experience" since our family has a sailboat of our own. My children and wife loved Sally and Capt John, his personal Opera, and the 2+ meter waves! Will do again soon.

My husband, a novice captain, and I went out on Broadreach sailing charter for the day. To say that it was AMAZING is an understatement! Our 10 days of Maine was over eclipsed by this one day out on the ocean with Captain Bob snd his first mate Captain Ben. My husband learned so much as he was allowed to sail and learn from the very experienced Captain Bob. He was thrilled at the opportunity to navigate through the coastal waters out to sea. Ben the first mate captain was extremely knowledgeable about Maines history. Every light house or house by the shore he told of its own personal stories. He brought all of Maine's history in such a gripping way that I wished he was our guide of the state! He is starting next year as a history teacher to high schoolers. They are truly blest to have such a knowledgeable and exciting teacher as the learn their heritage.
My husband has taken several teaching excursions and this was by far the best. He got to learn and to relax while Ben brought us a charcuterie board and drinks out on the front deck. So you can just relax and have a quintessential Maine coast sail or lend a hand and brush up on your sailing skills.

Good Morning we had an amazing "church" experience this morning at 4:30am when we signed up for "boat church" with Rev AbbyLynn Haskell. Cpt Sean Tibbetts of Maine Tuna Fishing out of Camp Ellis came up with this idea as he did when he was a child with his grandmother every Sunday. Cpt. Sean took a group of us out into Saco Bay where Rev AbbyLynn led a beautiful sunrise service. Not only did God provide a gorgeous sunrise, but also a double rainbow over Hills Beach as an added gift. They do this every Sunday morning through August. See BroadReachMinistries.com for more information. Thank you AbblyLynn, Bob and Sean for a beautiful start to our day.

Had a wonderful two-hour sail with my five-year old son. Abby and Jonathan were fantastic. We had great seats on the bow of the sailboat and enjoyed sailing around Wood Island. Jonathan navigated these waters with skill, and Abby told us all about the lighthouse and history of the islands near Saco Bay. She even took pictures and sent them to us. This was a highlight of our vacation, and certainly something that can be done safely with coronavirus precautions in place.

Our first time sailing....and the crew made us very comfortable. We were lucky enough to have the singing Romeo, an opera singer as our captain entertaining us along our trip with his first mate Sally. I would definitely recommend this trip as a must! Thank you for the memories!

What an amazing time we had with Broad Reach Sailing! Both Bob and Sally were great guides, and were so great with our kids. They shared interesting stories and the history of Maine... plus, the kids got to “steer” the boat and help with the sails! Highly recommend!

We just returned from a 4 hour cruise with Bob and Ben, and it was terrific. Relaxing. Exciting. Educational. All of the above. Our “children” are 17 up to 23 - and everyone enjoyed themselves. The boat itself is beautiful, and Bob and Ben provided the right combination of fun and education. Highly recommend.

We want to thank Abby and Bob for a most enjoyable afternoon on the water! From the second Abby answered my call in the morning with such a pleasant, friendly voice, we knew we picked the right adventure. Our intimate outing started by boarding their beautiful, clean, comfortable boat. Their knowledge of the coast, lobstering, lighthouses, birds and over all enthusiasm and love of sailing was infectious! They truly made us feel special and allowed us to help raise the sail and steer the boat! Abby even served us snacks and refreshments on deck. From start to finish they went above and beyond! We would highly recommend and hope to come back again some day! Fondly, The Winston's
