1. Can we help sail the boat?
Absolutely! All our guests are encouraged to man the helm, trim the sheets and participate in running the boat in any way they desire!
2. Can we just sit back and relax?
Absolutely! This is your time on the water and you may sit and relax and enjoy the ride and scenery. On an 7 hour sail, we can view 3 lighthouses, while listening to the sounds of the ocean, while sipping your favorite beverage. On a 2-day sail, we can sail to an offshore island and anchor for the night.
You may bring your favorite alcoholic beverages!
3. What should we wear?
Dress in layers. A wind breaker, sweatshirt, long sleeve shirt, tee shirt, jeans, shorts and rain gear constitute the basics. Boat shoes or sneakers with light colored soles that will not mark up the boat are a necessity. Sunglasses, sun block, and a hat with visor are useful. You will want your camera or camcorder to record the highlight of your Maine vacation! When sailing for the 7 hour cruise, bring a pre-made bag lunch to eat while underway.
