I am definitely doing this again next time I go up!

This experience was an amazing one! They were the sweetest humans with so much knowledge. They knew so much history of the islands, and they loved all the sailboat questions. I am definitely doing this again next time I go up!!

Amazing

Our private sunset sail was amazing. Captain Bob and Ben made the sail extra special by telling stories about the area! I plan to do this sailing anytime I have guests visiting.

This is a MAINE MUST-DO! Above and Beyond

We had a perfect day and Abby and Bob were the perfect hosts. They went way above and beyond to make sure that our experience was great, and it was. It’s easy to tell that they love what they do and they were very knowledgeable about the area, both in the present and the past... Don’t wait to book yours, and who knows? Bob might even let you drive the boat! ;)

Our sunset sail was a wonderful experience.

AbbyLynn and Bob were great hosts! I could not have asked for a better experience. Their knowledge and skill made us feel safe and secure. They shared their lives with us and gave us great insight to area and its history. Bob also taught me about sailing and let me pilot his boat for a good portion of the sail. I highly recommend this experience to all. You will be very happy with them and their excellent hosting.

They are so kind and generous... they event let me navigate their beautiful sailing ship. We had an amazing sunset, and 2 hours of pleasure. I recommend it to everyone. We saw plenty of gorgeous islands. Thank you to both of you, our holidays were even better thanks to you ⛵️ BRAVO!

We can’t thank Abby & Bob enough for such an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience! if you are in the area & wanna try something different that will literally take your breath away with stunning views & warm your soul with great company from the hosts THIS IS IT! This was my first time on a sailboat & it definitely won’t be last, especially not with Abby & Bob! Incredible experience, highlight of our trip!

Great Time

We did a private sunset cruise in Saco Bay. We are locals but still had a great time. Captain Bob is very knowledgeable about all the islands and history. I loved that. We brought a dessert platter and they supplied beautiful Maine plates. Crew is very attentive.

Wonderful experience!

Wonderful experience! We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing sail with Abby and Bob on their beautiful boat. We learned a lot about the surrounding islands and beautiful scenery, and we even took turns at the helm with Bob as our guide - a great teacher. They were so welcoming and hospitable, and we highly recommend the tour!
