My wife and I went out on Sunday night September 30 on the 5 PM cruise. Capt. Bill and first mate Sally made it a wonderful experience!
Our sunset cruise included seals, dolphins, loons, a gorgeous flaming sunset, and a spectacular fog bank the timed its arrival to our docking at 7:00 pm.
For $30 apiece, it was the best money we've spent on our 15 day six state trip.
Thank you Capt. Bill for a most enjoyable time!!

This is a must do if you are visiting Boothbay. The crew, Captain Bill and his first mate Jerry, were knowledgeable, engaging and fun! We were with a very small group because it was an overcast day. We helped hoist the sails and during our return to the harbor we I even got to do a little of the sailing! Jerry was able to tell us all about the harbor and the surrounding islands and Bill was an expert sailor and was great at explaining how the ship works and all sorts of cool stuff about sailing! The next time we are in Boothbay we will be going out with them again!

Very enjoyable experience with the friendly, expert crew (Bill and Doug). They make great efforts to answer your questions, ensure your comfort (including offering parkas and blankets for those that don't dress warm enough on a cool day), and help you with your photos. You can even get an informal sailing lesson. Sailing is a refreshing treat for those that do not get to experience it often.

A very pleasant cruise around the outer islands off Boothbay Harbor. Captain Bill and first mate Doug gave us a great first sailing experience on this pretty schooner. If was cold, so we needed the blankets and jackets provided. It was a great way to relax and enjoy the scenery.

A pleasant boat trip with a knowledgeable crew and capt. If you're tired of walking and getting lost on back roads; this is the tour for you. A relaxing cruise around Boothbay with historical background on the area. Lasts about two hours and there are several trips each day.
