This was our second time sailing with Schooner Eastwind. My husband has a peripheral vision deficiency. The crew provided assist in boarding and disembarking. The crew also provides good commentary during the cruise. This sailing experience is a must do when in Boothbay Harbor.

We enjoyed an afternoon cruise. The captain ( Lauren) and crew ( Carter) were exceptional in skills and hospitality. We often go on sailboat cruises on vacations and find this boat and crew to be the best!
