This was an amazing experience. Captain Lorne and Dave were a tremendous crew who clearly know how to sail and know these waters. There were porpoises, osprey, eagles not to mention incredible vistas. A highly recommended afternoon.

Can't recommend the Eastwind enough. We had a great time on the sunset cruise and will do it again in the future. Lorne and his first mate were both great sailors and hosts. Couldn't ask for more.

This was a 1st rate experience. Captain Lorne and 1st mate Carter are enjoyable to be around. They were flexible, could see that the group was ready for fun, took us on a great trip on a breezy day.

I took the Independence Day fireworks sailing this past week and could not be happier that I book the trip for the family. It was certainly a nice change from the typical tour boat experience. Even my sea-weary wife was delighted by the experience. The...More

We went on captain fish's whale watch first. Disappointed. Touristy. Crowded boat and way too long. I should've followed my heart and picked Schooner Eastwind from the beginning. 2 hours was the perfect amount of time and sailing was much more exciting than riding on...More

Enjoyed a wonderful two hour sail in beautiful Boothbay Harbor. Even with little wind for the sails, it was a great experience from beginning to end. The captain was knowledgeable and engaging throughout the trip.

My husband and I have been to this area a few times and have always admired the schooners sailing the waters. After a lot of research, we narrowed our choice down to the Schooner Eastwind. We were able to call the day before to make...More

Hi, I'm just a reviewer and not the owner. Suggest you give them a call but the tour was under 2 hours and the dress is very very casual, with a jacket for windy conditions. Enjoy yourselves.
