    This experience has been such an amazing swelling ride for our family. Linda has made this trip even special for accommodating with our needs. She has been a great captain from the start to end. Her gorgeous boat was spectacular! We highly recommend Linda for others to experience a moment to remember. Thank you, Linda for everything. We will be back next year!

    Linda is a top-notch captain and wonderful company on a day of sailing. My family of four had a full day of sailing on beautiful Penobscot Bay and Linda was a great teacher for me and my kids who aspire to have a boat of our own some day. Plus she made a delicious lunch for us. Thanks Linda! We'll do it again!

  3. JR

    Linda provided our family with a wonderful family sailing experience. Our family loved laying on the deck with the wind in their faces and the beautiful landscape. We also appreciated her deep history of the area and allowing us to help sail the boat. There is nothing like experiencing Maine from the water with Linda as your captain.

    We had a wonderful day on the water with Linda and her beautiful boat. She is a very experienced captain and the kind of adventurous and interesting person that is just fun to spend a day with. We couldn't have asked for a better day

  5. CR

    Linda was a great captain who exuded enthusiasm. She had a terrific manner with our two teenagers, appreciating their different personalities and interests. We’d definitely charter with her again.
