We took a sunset harbor cruise on Sept 13th. It was great weather, the captain and 1st mate were great! They told lots of stories and answered everyone's questions. We brought beverages in a backpack and enjoyed them as the sun set in Boothbay Harbor. The trip was 2 hours long.

The perfect weather may be effecting this review but I think the crew and the boat would make this two hour sail a great experience in any conditions. Dick got us off to a great start at the ticket booth and the experience carried through until we docked. On the boat John and Joe were capable, professional and very engaging.... More

We had a nice day to see the islands in and around Boothbay harbor on the Schooner Eastwind. VERY enjoyable. The crew--Captain Brad and Joe--narrated as we sailed and it was interesting to hear local history with a comical twist! There were cushions to sit on and I was lucky enough to grab a seat closest to the front. Anyone... More

Great cruise around Boothbay harbour with an interesting and amusing commentary. Authentic sailing on a beautiful well cared for schooner. A great way to enjoy this spectacular area. A must do in Maine.

Crew and Captain John were very accommodating and had a wonderful experience. Another check on my bucket list. Unforgettable exprience of helping drive and put up the sales on a schooner off the coast of Maine.

Took the schooner trip today with Capt Joe and had a perfect trip. Sun was shining, birds everywhere, saw seals and dolphins. Not too much wind but was a beautiful sailing experience. Leaves were changing colors. Couldn't ask for a more perfect day.

The evening cruise to watch the sunset on the 65' Schooner Eastward was a highlight of our visit to the Boothbay area. The boat is privately owned by the Smith family and was also built entirely by the owners. Fortunately we had a light breeze that evening so we were able to hoist the sales and actually do some sailing.... More

My daughter Erica and I boarded the Eastwind on the 2 pm 2 cruise. From the moment we were aboard Capt. John and First Mate Joe were extremely engaging as they proceeded out of Boothbay Harbor. The vessel is in immalculate condition and what a concept - we actually sailed in 10-15 knot winds without a peep from the auxiliary... More

It's beautiful to look upon and exciting to be on. It's a wonderful experience with experienced crew members. Submit yourself to the coastal experience and sail on the beautiful Eastwind.

We were part of a wedding party that included an afternoon sail around Boothbay Harbor on the Eastwind. It was a very enjoyable 2 hours. The captain and crew were pleasant and engaging and the harbor is beautiful. I would highly recommend it.
