Captain Christos is an excellent sailor and host. The ketch is beautiful and welcoming. We had a large enough party to reserve the entire boat for an evening sail. We had excellent winds and a lively and fun sail. Everyone had a blast.

We enjoyed the sailing trip around the harbor. It was very relaxing. The captain and crew member were very nice.

We were married in Aug of 2009 and went on a Sunset Cruise with Capt Cristo. I couldn't remember a more memorable evening. Hot when we left, cool water during the sail and a beautiful sunset. We were buzzed by Pres Bush and his agents and pulled up next to us for 10 minutes off our stern. What a thrill. We again went up for our anniverary in Aug of 2010 and enjoyed another wonderful sail with Capt Cristo. We are going again next week and can't wait to see our "old friend" Capt Cristo and enjoy a quiet, romantic, peaceful 2 plus hours on the ocean off of Kennebunkport. A greater time could not be had. Kudos to Capt John for having the Ketch available and Capt Cristo for the fun filled excursion. Can't wait.

Based upon reviews I had read on Trip Advisor, we decided to take the two hour trip. My wife and I both had a really nice time. The Captain and First Mate were very nice, and even though they didn't offer a lot of conversation during the trip, they answered questions from our group throughout. We saw some lobster trap boats and also had a Secret Service boat speed back to Walkers Point (the Bush compound) where we learned that Bush 41 was probably going on his speed boat for lunch somewhere down the coast.
Overall, a very nice time, and we had great weather...so that also helped! For $40 per person, we thought that it was well worth it.

Captain John and the first mate were friendly, inviting and created a fun enviroment. They were extremely knowledgable about the lobster industry and the local points of interst. The sailboat is the perfect size, we had twelve passengers with plenty of room to move around the boat. Anyone who wanted could steer the boat and Captain John gave execellent on the spot sailing lessons. Soda and water was provided, however we brought a bottle of wine (being the last sail of the day). The 2hrs flew by, it was like being out with a group of friends. Call early for a reservation, the 11AM and 2 PM sails fill up quickly.
