We had a very pleasant one hour sail aboard "Novelty". There is some very pretty scenery including a good close up view of Burnt Island Lighthouse and a distant view of the Cuckolds and Ram Island Light. The boat also calls at Squirrel Island to act as a ferry and overall this is a very pleasant way to spend an... More

This cruise line took us for a day trip to Monhegan island which is 12 miles out to sea. It was a rocky ride going out there, due to weather, but calm when we came home. After arriving on the island, we took several walks to White Head to overlook the ocean from the cliffs. The other walk took us... More

While it may have taken many phone calls, Captain Bill Campbell was always ready to help anytime day or night, on a cruise or on land with all the information necessary to provide a great evening cruise following a long day of sight seeing the beautiful state of Maine. If you are going to Boothbay Harbor make sure you find... More

We were booked with Balmy Day when the outfit we were originally scheduled with had to place us elsewhere (their boat was hit in an accident with a lobster boat). We had a delightful time on the 30-35' friendship sloop. It was a beautiful day in a gorgeous location, and our skipper, who is a native of the area was... More

We spent a relaxing afternoon on The Bay Lady soaking up sun & beautiful views. Captain Mike is very informative & seems to know everything about the area! This was one of our favorite memories of our week in Maine! I highly recommend it!

Very enjoyable trip on the water! Great time with captain and mate! My 8 year old fisherman grandson had a very enjoyable time! There were 15 passengers all but maybe 4 of us fished. Look out when they started to hit!!!! Great trip - one he is already looking forward to doing again next year!

Our second trip to Monhegan Island from Boothbay Harbor; thus our second trip on the Balmy Days. As it was after Labor Day, there weren't many passengers but it was a fine trip nonetheless. Our trip to the island was pretty rough but everyone handled it fine. On our return trip a couple of days later, one of the passengers... More
