Took the schooner trip today with Capt Joe and had a perfect trip. Sun was shining, birds everywhere, saw seals and dolphins. Not too much wind but was a beautiful sailing experience. Leaves were changing colors. Couldn't ask for a more perfect day.

We were part of a wedding party that included an afternoon sail around Boothbay Harbor on the Eastwind. It was a very enjoyable 2 hours. The captain and crew were pleasant and engaging and the harbor is beautiful. I would highly recommend it.
