I would suggest you take our afternoon eco sail if you wanted the full narrative of the history of Rockport, Indian Island Lighthouse, lobstering and the wildlife of the area. This is our focus on the afternoon eco sail. We will be glad to answer questions on any of our other sails but don't do a regular narration. You can read about the sailing options at our website.
