Enjoyed our "conversation" with Captain Stu learning about sailing, local culture and marine wildlife. Captain Stu did a great job getting to know us and understanding what we wanted from our sail and delivering. We will definitely use Sail Acadia again!

Yes, you need to make a reservation. I think had called them using the number at the bottom of the Sail Acadia website, but their email address is also listed there..
