Had a fabulous time with the Captain and his awesome crew! We always make time for a 2 hour sailing trip on our visit - so relaxing and beautiful. You can bring wine and cheese/snacks to enjoy on the trip.

Being an old Navy man, I was looking forward to this. I was not disappointed. The captain and mates were very friendly and knowledgable, pointing out different sights along the shore line. And them knowing I was in the Navy, they asked if I wanted to help raise the sail. Thanks for a great ride

We sailed past Walker's Point. The crew were friendly and pointed out other interesting sites like George Bush's parachute landing area at St Ann's Church.

Captain Woody made this a memorable trip helped by the incredible weather and smooth sea. We were given some history of the area, how the boat was created, local personalities, good restaurants and more. Great crew who seemed well accomplished in their tasks so the trip was perfect. Hoss, the dog mascot was a real bonus. Would do it again... More

We were a bit ahead of the season, but the weather was cooperative and the owner set up a sail for our small group. He and his crew were helpful and really amiable, and the owner/captain was informative and personable. We had a gorgeous day for sailing and enjoyed the resident boat dog as well. The schooner, which the owner... More

Enjoyed going out with captain, crew and dog on a lovely afternoon. It is so relaxing once the motor goes off after leaving the harbor to just feel the air in the sails moving the boat. It is a relaxing trip up the coast of maine.

There were a total of 20 on board with Woody and two crew members. All were friendly and the sailing was great; down the river... More

What could be better than sitting on a sail boat and having a crew of local sailing experts take you for tour of the port and shore line? The crew is more than willing explain and answer any questions you have about the area, the boat, and sailing. The tour was the perfect amount of time, long enough to get... More

We had a wonderful sailing tour. The staff is very friendly. It was our daughters boyfriend's first time sailing. They asked him to help out. He is now hooked! It was a fantastic 2 hour cruise. The captain has wonderful stories. Thank you Captain Rich!
