Sail on the "Chrissy" for a truly memorable sail aboard one of the last original working Maine lobster sloops. Enjoy sailing on Frenchman Bay, seeing spectacular sights of Bald Eagles, porpoises, puffins and the like. Sailing on the Chrissy would make a great gift for that romantic couple. For a private charter is only 250$ for a two hour cruise.

We arrived at the docks 15 min before our 1:00 sail as directed. The "girls" at the booth just looked at us and didn't even acknowledge our presence, until I asked who worked there. Then one said all of us, but didn't even ask what...More
