Owner description: Bufflehead is a 32 foot wooden gaff sloop, a classic boat, built in 1964. She is a very pretty boat, superbly swift, comfortable and safe. Captain Daniel Bennett sailed around the Pacific Ocean on a tall ship, and twice across the Atlantic (and back and forth to the Caribbean) on his own small boat.

Captain Daniel is professional and very warm. He has sailing in his blood. We were out for four hours with him among the tall ships parade off of Rockland Harbor. We had great weather and being on the water was great. If you want a personal taste of sailing in Maine the Buflehead is the way to go. His stories and humor were great! We will go again we loved sailing with Captain Daniel!

A most do if you are near Rockland you will not be disappointed. My husband and I booked a private 4 hour sail with Captain Daniel for our anniversary. We started sailing through out Rockland Harbor, we were truly impressed with Captain Dan's ability to maneuver so closely around the other boats all under sail without the use of a motor. Seeing Rockland and it's surrounding islands from the quiet tranquility of wind and water, being away from the bustling tourist is the most calming yet exhilarating experience. Beside seeing porpoises, a family of bald eagles, ospreys hunting for fish to feed their young, and harbor seals, "moose" (not really), shooting the cannon, the real treasure was spending this time with Captain Dan is like sailing with your best friend we had many laughs. He has many amazing sailing adventure stories, and one of my favorite being the story of when he baby sat a baby whale. His love of sailing and being with you as well as his love of Rockland and his own family will have you telling stories of your own. Next time we'll bring the whole family. Til we meet again Captain Daniel be well. Thank you, Cheers. Kristen & Dave.

My wife and I were determined to get out out of the mess of the city and among the quiet peaceful beauty of the Maine coast. Capt. Daniel and his "crew" were knowledgable, hospitable and extremely capable hosts. He made sure we got close to the natural wonders of uninabited (with the exception of wildlife) islands as well as charming schooners and lighthouses in Rockland Harbor. His capable bearing coupled with his sturdy comfortable sloop made the experience the highlight of our vacation. We will most certainly return for more.

This was our third trip with Captain Daniel on the Bufflehead. He is an excellent sailor who always manages to find the best wind, and his knowledge and humor add to the joy of a trip out of Portland Harbor. Not to be missed if you enjoy being on the water.

This charter and Captain are the best you'll find. Just promise yourself a meal at Cafe Miranda afterwards. No day any where will ever be better
