We took the evening excursion from 6-8pm. Seating was a little tight, and it was tough to stay in my spot when the boat heeled over, but my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the time on the boat blur Captain, John, was very capable and entertaining. His First Mate, Isaiah, was a fine, hardworking young man. I highly recommend this... More

Our day was so perfect - perfect weather, ambiance and landmarks. Captain John has an hospitable personality and enjoys his tours and visitors. We pushed off to favorable wind conditions and were soon under sail, engines off, and invited to participate in raising the sails. The captain pointed out where the Pew Family has a cottage, named each private island... More

From calling and speaking with the ticket clerk, to picking up our tickets, boarding and sailing, everyone was awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water. Beautiful rainbows and sunsets!

Had a wonderful morning sail on the Eastwind Schooner. It was a beautiful day and Captain John was a wealth of information. There was only 5 of us on board so there was lots of conversation with the captain and first mate. It was thoroughly enjoyable seeing the little islands and lighthouses. My husband got to steer the boat for... More

It was a good sailing day, the wind was just right. The crew was very helpful and the other passengers very congenial. Very nice cruise.

This trip was for me the highlight of our trip to Boothbay Harbor! This is something that I suggest everyone who visits Boothbar Harbor does at least once! The Captain and First mate were both very knowledgable as well as humorous about the history surrounding the area. If you chose to help raise or lower the sails, or even captain... More

A outstanding outing. We booked the 4 hour sail but the weather was bad...we received a full refund and took the 2 hour sail the next day. It was a joy and we would all do it over again on our next visit to Boothbay...next time the sunset cruise. Book ahead of time ...there is a booth at pier 1

We loved the enthusiasm of Captain John and his crew mate Isaiah and all the info they shared about the schooner, and neighboring islands. An unexpected early evening wind kicked up and that lead to a completely delightful spirited sail. As florida gulf coast sailors where it is warm and the waters choppy, we enjoyed the cool breeze and the... More

We had a perfect 6pm cruise out of booth bay harbor on this schooner. The cheery company owner sold us tickets on the spot. The captain and his mate were knowledgable and engaging; we saw a good amount at sea for those 2 hours. Seats were comfortable cushions on benches. (No back support except maybe a few spots near the... More
