Went sailing with 7 family members. ( this boat holds 20) had a fantastic time . Water was choppy and the wind was up which made for a fast, exciting sail. Captain and crew took us out into the ocean and along the Maine coast. Sail lasted close to 2 hours. Leaves from Kennebunk Harbor. Fair pricing. Nice, comfortable boat... More

Very relaxing and informative. The Captain's knowledge is remarkable. Beautify scenery and comfortable boat. Every family should put this on their trip agenda.

Ship and crew were terrific. Great way to spend an afternoon on the water. It's really difficult to beat a sail on a beautiful wooden boat. Added bonus was having available parking.

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
