Captain Bob and Captain Johannes were very personable. They asked us multiple times if we were cold and wanted a blanket, they refilled our glasses for us, and even took pictures of us and airdropped them to us at the end. We were here on our honeymoon and they really just made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. I was a little nervous at the beginning wondering whether or not I’d get any seasickness aboard the ship, but it seems like they’ve really considered how to make their passengers as comfortable as possible because they had seasickness bands available. I felt a little embarrassed taking them but Johannes was very sweet and said he even uses them sometimes, (I’m sure he said that to make me feel better and it was very nice of him to do so). The ride was very smooth though I was totally fine. Captain Bob is a great storyteller and Captain Johannes is a talented opera singer! How unique! He sang while we watched the sunset and it was magical. These two really have this trip down. The timing of every is spot on.

If you’re thinking about booking this adventure, do it!! Captain Bob and his first mate (Jonas) were extremely hospitable and fun to talk with. They had a great knowledge of the area and shared their own sailing stories with us. We got to see cool old light houses, some wild birds and the beautiful coastal landscape. Would highly recommend and would do again.

I surprised my husband for our 25th anniversary with the sunset sail. He was really impressed. The boat was beautiful and the captain and crew were very hospitable. The story telling was interesting and entertaining. We lucked out with a beautiful evening and a gorgeous sunset despite a rainy forecast. We also lucked out by getting sung to in the moonlight by the 2nd captain who is also an opera singer. It's a really nice touch to an already unique experience. It gets chilly out on the water, so take a jacket and shoes with some grip. I almost wore flip flops, but I'm glad I didn't because there were times where we had to brace a little bit. Despite a few strong winds that had us tilted, the boat ride was I credibly relaxing and fun. It was our favorite activity we did during our first visit to Maine. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make memories with loved ones. Thank you!
