Summer is here!

We are looking forward to the excellent forecast for the coming weeks for sailing on Penobscot Bay. We are now offering daysails and sunsets sails for two hours seven days a week on both Schooner Surprise and Sloop Anjacaa. Both boats are also available for charter so if you are planning a birthday party, anniversary, family reunion, or corporate event let us help you make it a special day to remember on board! We also offer catering and specialized menus. People often ask why the Surprise? We offer cushioned seating for all on board, a limited number of passengers allows our guests a more intimate and comfortable ride. Our schooner is also on the National Register of Historic Places and carries a fascinating history. What about Anjacaa? Anjacaa is great for small parties looking for a more private ride. She carries a maximum of six guests, and is good for couples looking for more space and fewer passengers on board. Anjacaa is also great for those looking for speed, she is swift in the water and great in both light winds and strong breezes. We have lots of special events happening this summer aboard both boats including full moon sails, sunset sails with live music and dessert, fireworks sails, race weekend on Anjacaa, Windjammer parade of sail in Rockland. Check out our special events page on our websites, and join us for a sail this...

Spring is here!

There is still snow on the ground and we are less then 6 weeks away from the start of our season! We have been working hard to get Surprise and Anjacaa ready for launching in just a few weeks. We will be sailing Surprise in her 99th year on the water with new sails this year and she has had lots of brightwork done down below. She also had a new head put in, so we can all thank Ramiro for that! We are also very excited to be able to offer another different sailing experience aboard Sloop Anjacaa this summer. She will only take a maximum of six guests and offers a bit more of an intimate ride. She is a great sailing boat in both light and heavy breezes and is sure to be a lot of fun for passengers. Our popular live music and homemade dessert sails will be back this summer on Tuesday nights with our friend Andre Lascoutx from Nashville playing his guitar and singing for us. These sails sell out quick so be sure to book yours in advance. Also, if you haven't sailed on one of our full moon sails be sure to book one on either Surprise or Anjacaa to see the sunset over the Camden Hills and the moonrise over Penobscot Bay. We look forward to having you aboard starting May...

Fall Sailing on Surprise

We still have a few of our favorite weeks of the season left before the Surprise comes out of the water for the winter. September and October provide consistent winds and bright sunny days on Penobscot Bay, perfect for sailing. The crowds have gone and many times we have small groups on board that make for a more intimate experience for our guests. We always have plenty of jackets and blankets to keep people warm.  So bring along something hot to drink and join us on one of our three sails any day of the week until October 16th! Departing the dock at 10:30, 1:00 and 3:30.  For reservations call 207.236.4687 or book online at...

Summer is here!!

With a few days of wonderful weather we are officially sailing on our summer season. We have been spotting a lot of Bald Eagles, Seals and Porpoises. Camden Harbor is getting busy with transient boats and locals are putting their boats in the water. We started to sail our 5th trip of the day from 7:30pm to 9:30pm and the sunsets are incredible. We hope to sail with you on board Schooner Surprise...
