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.

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.

My wife and I, celebrated our 1 year anniversary with captain bob. We didn’t meet with abbylynn , but she was who we communicated with prior to sailing. Communication was great. Helpful, informative, quick, and clear. Couldn’t be happier. We met captain bob in the parking lot and right away felt comfortable. He was friendly and helpful. He gave us some history of the boat and its capabilities. Which was great. He sat with us for about 10 minutes to explain what we’ll be doing. Very informative. He was very welcoming. We were able to celebrate with champagne that he was able to keep cold for us and , deck mate , Keenan was helpful in making sure we were comfortable. He even gave us a little show! A black belt karate experience! As we explored the bay and island , bob was super informative of everything we saw and passed. Very knowledgeable. We couldn’t recommend this experience enough. It was awesome! He took us up into the bay a ways as well which was very beautiful. I would definitely come back and sail again with Abbylynn and captain bob. They helped make our special day very memorable. Thank you guys!

Once in a lifetime experience. We got a special trip and opportunity to see a lighthouse and keepers house like few people have ever had the chance to do. I would not hesitate to take another trip and will always cherish this event as one of my fondest memories. The ship, crew and experience were all top notch. The sunset capped off an amazing evening.

I couldn’t imagine having a more wonderful experience. I booked a trip to sail past the lighthouse my father and his twin brother had lived on the first seven years of their lives. I ended up with an introduction to the wonderful folks that have restored and maintain the lighthouse and keepers home and a personalized tour of the premises. All on a gorgeous sail boat, expertly crewed and ending with a world class opera aria in the language of my choice. I can’t recommend this trip strongly enough. Even without a personal connection you get all the other wonderful aspects of a truly marvelous trip.. Go sailing!
