About Morse Alpha Expeditions & Sail Rockland Charters
Private Daysails: We love to check out the picturesque lighthouses, watch the lobsterman haul traps, sail amongst the many local schooners, or circumnavigate one of the many small islands in Penobscot Bay. But in the end, we’ll do whatever you want! We love getting out on the water, and sharing this beautiful area. We’ve worked aboard many tall ships, for Outward Bound, and even tugboats. We’ve sailed Rocinante to the Caribbean, Bermuda, Panama and back. But Maine is our favorite place of all!

My husband and I spent 5 days on Rocinante with Ben Carey and his co-instructor, Dorothy. We both have sailing experience, but wanted to learn more and have an overnight sailing experience in the ocean. It was an amazing experience! We all had to take turns doing various jobs on the trip. I really wanted to see what it would be like to live on a sail boat and try my hand at everything from cooking, checking the engine, to planning the next day’s route, and changing the sails based on changing conditions. I got more than I had hoped for in a short 5 days. Ben and Dorothy were patient and encouraging, as well as, extremely fun to hang out with. I feel like I gained the confidence I needed to move forward. Thank you for an extremely memorable and enjoyable experience.

Wow, what a great offshore expedition. I sail regularly and have taken several ASA courses up through Bareboat Chartering but hadn't done any offshore sailing. I joined a Bermuda to Rockland Maine Expedition and this really added to my sailing experience. I learned a lot, had tons of time helming, saw some incredible sites and met great people. Ben (Skipper & Owner) is a great teacher and has a super personality which makes it all work. Rocinate is a sweet sailing boat and she has a really nice stable motion. I can say that even my daughter who is sensitive to "tippy" boats would feel comfortable here, she has sailed with me on 40'ers and they are fine, but this Norseman 447 really stands up nicely to even big puffs. Get out on the water with the Morse Alpha crew for an unforgettable experience.

Ben took us out for a day sail. I got to be at the helm the entire time! We sailed around the islands outside of Rockland and dodged lobster pots, sailed in fog, and sailed by two awesome lighthouses. Great experience and we will definitely be back (thinking doing an extended sailing charter in the future)

My 3 sons love sailing. This was an amazing educational experience for them. They were able to participate in sailing a beautiful sailboat along the coast of Maine.

Fantastic time with Ben! He was knowledge, friendly, excited to be on the water and taught my son and I all about sailing. Worth every penny for a 4 hour sail!
