Spend 2 beautiful hours sailing (not just plodding along on one of the other "tour" boats where you can sit inside), but REALLY sail along the coast and harbor of Boothbay! Very personal tour, Bill and his assistant Sally were very informative, several of our crew got to volunteer to hoist the sails, and the 2 hours flew by! Just be sure to dress warmly as it gets very cold on the water (but they have blankets on board if you need them). Well worth it!!!

Twelve thumbs up from our group of six. Easy trip guided by Captain Bill and his one man crew, Doug. They covered history, literature, and physics--making the trip informative, as well as fun. Don't miss this!

This was the high point of my recent trip to Maine. I have always enjoyed the coast Maine and have vacationed there for the past several years. There are always many things to do along the coast but I will definitely return to Boothbay Harbor to take another schooner ride. It was marvelous. Our captain(Bill) and his female crew member (Sally) were great guides. They informed us about the area, they explained the principles of sailing and general made the trip more enjoyable. I would recommend that anyone close to Boothbay go for a Eastwind Schooner ride.

My wife and I went out on Sunday night September 30 on the 5 PM cruise. Capt. Bill and first mate Sally made it a wonderful experience!
Our sunset cruise included seals, dolphins, loons, a gorgeous flaming sunset, and a spectacular fog bank the timed its arrival to our docking at 7:00 pm.
For $30 apiece, it was the best money we've spent on our 15 day six state trip.
Thank you Capt. Bill for a most enjoyable time!!

This is a must do if you are visiting Boothbay. The crew, Captain Bill and his first mate Jerry, were knowledgeable, engaging and fun! We were with a very small group because it was an overcast day. We helped hoist the sails and during our return to the harbor we I even got to do a little of the sailing! Jerry was able to tell us all about the harbor and the surrounding islands and Bill was an expert sailor and was great at explaining how the ship works and all sorts of cool stuff about sailing! The next time we are in Boothbay we will be going out with them again!
