“Great 2 hr sail!”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Totally unplanned day...called last minute and luckily there was a cancellation. They only take 20 ppl out. Crew members were low key, pleasant. You could tell they enjoy their work. Perfectly smooth sail out by Walkers Point, Bumpkin Island and Goat Island. You can BYOB and any other food you like to snack on. Waters are provided as well as plenty of binoculars. Would love to sail again....soon!

“Peaceful Afternoon on Water”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We sailed on the Eleanor with another family and had a wonderful experience. The Captain and Crew are professional, friendly and truly want each guest to have a nice experience. They provide bottled water, blankets and even binoculars. At one point my young son needed to use the restroom and they were easily able to accommodate that in their lavatory below deck.

Very relaxing afternoon, and one that I will definitely do again next summer.

“WELL WORTH IT!!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

This was such a great thing to do in Kennebunkport! Really gives you the feel for the area. It is a 2 hour sail and it is VERY reasonably priced-great value. The Schooner Eleanor is located right in town which makes it convenient. The staff and captain are very laid back making it relaxing and enjoyable. If you have the time I highly recommend Schooner Eleanor Sailing!

“Totally enjoyable!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We had a great two hour sailing experience with Captain Rich and his well informative crew! A beautiful way to spend the afternoon at sea and on a schooner no less! Bottled water and binoculars are available on board, but they welcome you to bring your own food and/or beverage, which is a plus. Definitely recommend this excursion!

“Great sailing at a reasonable rate”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is a very low key sailing experience with a really nice crew in board. The water was rough so the trip was cut short by a half hour but the captain also lowered the fare which was more than fare. They have blankets, binoculars and water on board. Definitely worth the $$. They also allowed us to park our car there before and after and stroll around the town of Kennebunkport which has great restaurants and shopping very close by.
