Captain Dan provides a true Maine sailing experience on the waters around Rockland. We sailed alongside & darted among the dozen or so Windjammers as they paraded along the Rockland Breakwater. Captain Dab gave us a bonus excursion out to Owl's Head Lighthouse for some remarkable images and was thorough in his knowledge of the history of Rockland & the harbor during our sail. If you are lucky, you too will meet his family on board. Simply put, a remarkable way to spend the afternoon & no better way to do it than with Captain Dan on the Bufflehead.

We did the lobster feast with our sail. It was all we hoped it would be. Captain Daniel was wonderful and shared so much interesting history and information about ships and the lobster industry in Maine. Our picnic on the beach was over the top, from homemade potato salad and fresh garden greens salad, fresh juicy lobster cooked just right, and last but not lease - homemade strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream and local strawberries. This was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Captain Daniel!

I was so delighted to find a sailing opportunity that involved only six people. As someone who has her own sailboat, the idea of going on a big boat with a bunch of tourists was the last thing I wanted to do on vacation. The captain was friendly and knowledgeable and let me relax!

My girlfriend and I were visiting Rockland for the first time, and our B&B host recommended trying the Bufflehead sailing charters. We were not at all disappointed at all. In fact we ended up booking a sunset sail the second day. Captain Dan is a wealth of information and knowledge about Rockland and sailing. He was a very interesting guy to talk to. I highly recommend booking a charter. We definitely will next time we are visiting.
