We recently had a wedding group go out for the sunset cruise as part of the wedding reception. The guest were largely from out of town and came back to us for dinner after the cruise raving about what a great experience they had on the Margaret Todd. The Bride & Groom could not say enough lovely things about their experience. Thank you MT from all of us at The Bar Harbor Inn.

My wife and I took the two-hour morning cruise on a beautiful early fall day without a cloud in the sky. It was so peaceful we both could have fallen asleep on the boat. But why do that when you can see rocky islands and cool wildlife, including seals and porpoises not far from the schooner. The captain did a great job explaining things and answering questions and the crew were great too. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I chartered the 42 foot delight for a private charter with Ryan the captain. This is a must do in Bar Harbor! We had two hours on Frenchman’s Bay with a captain who was safe, experienced and personable! The wildlife was incredible! We sailed from 1 to 3 and the sail could not have been better! We saw at least ten seals, a pod of porpoise, an eagle and lots of sea birds including guillemots, cormorants, and lots of gulls. We even saw an eagle! Wonderful trip with a personable captain who put safety first and was a joy to be with on this 42 foot sailboat! Highly recommend and so worth the price!

It was beautifully scenic and provided an awesome view of the coast surrounding Bar Harbor, Maine. I would recommend it if anyone goes there. I would also recommend getting there 30min before. Lesson learned!

Easily a highlight of our visit to the Bar Harbor, Maine area. A beautiful vessel take you back to another era. The harbor at sunset is magnificent...the sunlight on the water at dusk is so lovely. The crew was engaging and allowed the passengers to help in hoisting the sails. It's cold on the water so be sure to bring layers of warmth and even a hat and gloves came in handy. When and if we return, we will ride the schooner again! Not to be missed!
