Guests will board from the dock and we will take a tour of the boat, briefly discuss safe sailing practices and answer any questions.

We will sail on the Saco River into Saco Bay and view Wood Island Lighthouse, Biddeford Pool & Old Orchard Beach. We will keep on the look out for marine wildlife. We have seen seals, porpoises, sharks and even whales.

This was by far the best experience I’ve had via Airbnb! Bravo to Abby and Johnathan, who were both exceedingly hospitable and accommodating. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys history, sailing, or opera. Incredible experience all around!

This boat experience was amazing! Our hosts went out of their ways to make sure we were comfortable the entire time, from having blankets and gloves if needed to serving our wine so we could relax and enjoy the ride. I would recommend this trip to anyone I know looking for something to do in the area!

What a wonderful time. It was my first time sailing. The weather was a little cold and gloomy but the sail was fine. The guides were knowledgeable, welcoming, nice and accommodating. I was provided with a comfortable seat and a warm blanket. I would do it again.

I chose the last sail of the season to find that perfect adventure proposal. It was a little chilly, but Captain Bob and Johnathan sailed us to the lighthouse while providing blankets, champagne, and cheese. They helped me capture the moment that mattered the most... not to mention Captain JB is a world class opera singer who shared his amazing talent with us. Thank you for helping me arrange this special day. This crew definitely went above and beyond to set sail!

I could not have been blessed with better captains for my first time sailing. Captains Bob and Johnathan were incredibly kind, educated, fun and their shared passion for sailing truly inspired me. They went above and beyond to make it a day and an experience that I would cherish for a lifetime . I can only hope to have the opportunity to sail with them again next time I’m visiting Maine.
