“Rainy day...but Great Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

It was overcast and rainy on our scheduled day, but it didn't spoil our trip. We really enjoyed being on a real schooner with Captain Aaron. We saw porpoise, an osprey nest, beautiful homes and the Curtis Maine Lighthouse. A very nice morning.

“Exciting Sailing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

We took a chance with the sail on a "not so good day" but it turned out fine. The harbor area is beautiful. The waves got high and rough which made for the exciting part. These are very experienced sailors and make wise decisions. We had to come in a little early and they offered some refund and we were so pleased with the treatment and excitement that we did not choose to be refunded. They provide you with a picture onboard the schooner and it is developed by the time you get in and provided free of charge. We were surprised by this and that the picture came out so well. We would do this again when we come back to Camden.

“Perfect sail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

While we cannot give the crew credit for perfect weather, we certainly appreciated the genuine interest in educations, informing and gentle joking. The two hours were very well spent and it was both a relaxing and invigorating experience. While the owner did not captain our trip, he was very accessible for private questions before hand. Overall a very good experience. Congratulations Captain Matt on your engagement.

“Lovely sunset cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

The sunset cruise departed around 5:15 at the end of a day that started with spirited winds. The winds settled down by evening and the rocking of the boat was like a lullaby. Matt and his crew mate were obviously very comfortable at sea. Our photos of the lighthouse at sunset, the sunset on the water, and sails in the evening light are delightful. Having the crew give us a photo of us before departure was a nice surprise. Matt told us interesting information about the houses in the area and the lighthouse. I would have enjoyed even more stories about the area, but he did answer any questions we had. Very enjoyable.

“Great way to spend a morning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We went on the morning 2 hour cruise - great views and a very peaceful and relaxing way to spend a few hours with the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. Very worthwhile and also managed to notch up another Maine lighthouse on Curtis island which you would only see from the sea!
To be sure of getting a place at the time and day we wanted, as we were only in Camden for a couple of days, we booked on line which was very easy and convenient.
