About Bufflehead Sailing Charters
Bufflehead is a 32 foot wooden gaff sloop, a classic boat, built in 1964. She is a very pretty boat, superbly swift, comfortable and safe. Captain Daniel Bennett sailed around the Pacific Ocean on a tall ship, and twice across the Atlantic (and back and forth to the Caribbean) on his own small boat.

Spent a great three hours with Captain Daniel on the Bufflehead. Our first day got rained out but fortunately we were able to reschedule and what a difference a day makes. Beautiful clear skies and a northerly breeze made for fantastic conditions. We exited Rockland harbor under sail and headed out past the Owl’s Head lighthouse. We circumnavigated Monroe island before pointing into the wind to make our way back to port. We thoroughly enjoyed hearing the history and comings and going’s of the harbor while taking in the sites. We spied our first Maine bald eagle and even got to witness the elusive Maine sea panda. Yes it is real. We’ll be doing the lobster bake for sure next time we are in town.

Captain Dan was experienced, knowledgeable, and very entertaining. We had a great sail, and really enjoyed our three hour tour with him. It was a very pleasant way to see some of Penobscot Bay and Rockland Harbor. Highly recommended!

One of the most genuine humans I have had the pleasure of spending a day with. We booked a trip for the day for my girlfriends birthday and had an incredible time. My girlfriend and her sister grew up in Maine and Captain Dan was able to give all of us an incredible new experience that will be remembered and cherished. Captain Dan is not only knowledgeable about his boat, the Bufflehead , but his knowledge about the surrounding areas and waterways was able to produce an answer to every one of our random questions. If you are thinking of chartering a boat in the Rockland area, you will not be disappointed! ~Matthew, Kate, & Emma

What an amazing afternoon, sailing with Sam and ‘crew’, weather was stunning, fall light and perfect temperatures. The lore of Penobscot Bay, along with knowledge of the area and sailing world added to the experience. Very highly recommend!

We had a great time on the Bufflehead. Captain Dan and his crew were experienced, entertaining, and put effort into making the sail a personalized enjoyable experience for all! A must-do if you’re in the area!
