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.

We were blessed with a gorgeous day and good wind. The Captain and his assistant were both friendly, good with the children onboard and a wealth of information about the area. Would do this again in a minute if we are back in the area.

Sailed on the 12:30 cruise on Windjammer Day. Beautiful weather, many Windjammers, a great Captain and crew. Totally wonderful. Got a really good sail and could enjoy sailing among the visiting Windjammers as well. Could not have been better. Highly recommended!
