This was a very fun experience! I would definitely recommend. We chose the private sail on the Alice with Captain Karl. He was very knowledgeable about sailing and the area.

Sail Acadia gave us an amazing afternoon. Our captain was a gifted sailor and handled the boat expertly. He also shared interesting facts about the boat, sights along the way, and lots of local lore. It was the highlight of our Acadia visit!

We had a wonderful time with Matt and Kareem. It was a cloudy cool day but a great time was had by everyone. Would highly recommend.

We booked a charter trip on the converted lobster boat. We had perfect weather for it. We brought a cooler with wine, cheese, grapes, etc. Our captain and first mate were lovely, and answered any questions we had. They asked us what we were interested in for our trip and we told them we were interested to see any wildlife that there might be. They pointed out a group of harbor seals, cormorants, and ducks. It was exactly what we were looking for, a gorgeous, chill time out on the water.

Loved sailing with Matt on the Friendship sloop Linda. With a brisk wind and 5 fellow passengers, our skipper was capable and generous with his knowledge of sailing and of the area. Definitely a highlight of our first trip to Maine.
