Reviewed June 27, 2014

Sailed on the Surprise in early June. The couple who owns it and runs tours were wonderful and very knowledgeable. They took time to talk with visitors, even letting us raise sails and steer the boat ourselves for a few minutes each. What a thrill and a unique experience! You get beautiful views of the harbor, the shoreline, and the nearby lighthouse, making for great photos and a very relaxing trip. We particularly enjoyed getting to know the other passengers, who were from all over the U.S. and the world. Our group really got along well, and these interesting conversations made the trip for us. Would highly recommend this experience!

2hour cruise on sailboat from the center of Camden Harbor. Several other boats offering similar trips. Discount for paying cash was reason to select this option. Congenial "skipper" and first mate..husband and wife. Guests able to help raise sails and "assist" with the helm.
