This is a comfortable schooner with a friendly, welcoming crew, which just might include a sea dog (literally). This is a beautiful part of the Maine coast to sail. Captain Rich motors out of the river and a bit away from shore, then deploys sails, and makes use of nature's gift as much as possible. We had a spectacular day,... More

Under warm, sunny skies, we were welcomed onto the Schooner Eleanor by her hospitable captain and crew. They were very knowledgeable and did everything they could to ensure our comfort. The only thing they couldn't provide was wind. After motoring out farther to try to catch some wind, they determined that there wouldn't be enough to give us a good... More

We enjoyed the sail. The boat is well organized, not overcrowded. They host offers free parking at the pier. We had a nice sail and will go on another trip when we return to Kennebunkport

Great way to see the Kennebunkport shoreline. A beautiful clear day in Kennebunkport was the backdrop for a pleasant sail. Winds were marginal so the motor was needed more than what we would have liked but the water was beautiful, the crew pleasant and the boat comfortable. Priced fairly. They accept only cash or check. Happy sailing!!!!

We sailed out of Kennebunkport on a beautiful 3 masted schooner under the command of Captain Rich. He and his crew were so accommodating and willing to answer any questions posed to them. It is a beautiful area to simply sit back and enjoy the quiet. I would highly recommend this for any other landlubbers like me.

Went today and took the 1st sail of the day. Captain Rich, his son Silas(?) and a lady crew member (sorry forgot her name) gave us a nice smooth sail. Boat was big enough for 20 folks without feeling cramped. Oh one more thing,their family dog Hoss sails with the group..such a cute guy! Worth the money! P.S. Thank you... More

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
