This was a wonderful opportunity to get out for a relaxed sunset sail. My father and I both had a great time, and Jack was knowledgable about the area, accommodating, and easy-going. Although the sail was only 1.5 hours (as advertised), there was very little "down time" so the time actually sailing was maximized. Thank you for a great experience!

I would echo the other reviews. The captain is extremely bright and knowledgeable and freely shares as much or as little information about sailing, marine life, the ocean and other related subjects as you wish. The boat is wonderful and the overall experience was great.

The weather was spectacular as were all other aspects of our sail with Captain Jack. We will make this a yearly experience. Be sure to reserve far in advance especially if you need the whole boat. He only takes six people at a time.

Captain Jack and his crew operate a super efficient yet personable sailing service. I like the fact that the sailing trip accommodates small group so we weren't packed like sardines and the price was extremely reasonable. I would highly recommend anyone to try Silverlining Sailing Service! Oh btw, it is a BYOB as well!

My wife and I have sailed several times with Captain Jack on the Silverlining. Captain Jack is also the owner of the boat and keeps it very clean and well maintained. The captain and his first mate Elliot are very friendly and knowledgeable about sailing, the area and marine life. The number of passengers is limited to 6 so there... More

Took the 9:30 a.m. trip the end of September. I don't know what to add to the other reviews except to confirm all the positive statements. If I had to do it over, I may have sailed with them every day of my stay in Ogunquit. This was my first time on a sailboat, and it was so much better... More

We've been sailing with Capt for years. He and the unspeakably gorgeous sloop Silver Lining define the best of the glorious Maine coast. When we need a fix, we head to Perkins Cove and everything gets better. We will return, over and over and over and over.

Our sailing trip aboard the Silverlining was spectacular! The boat is beautiful and we met another couple who we enjoyed talking to. We brought a bottle of wine and some snacks and were able to enjoy the beauty of the area and the conversation. They are very accomodating and in fact we were biking in Kennebunkport and didn't want to... More

As the #1 ranked activity in Ogunquit, my husband and I made a reservation about a month out and couldn't wait to get on the water! Since the boat only takes out a maximum of six guests, there was plenty of room for the group to spread out and enjoy the trip. We had an amazing two hours on the... More

We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset with Captain Jack, we loved all of our photo opportunities and the peacefulness is un- matched. Thank you very much. We will be back with our own group of six so we have the boat to ourselves! ! Outstanding
