We had been looking for something to do together as a family and happened across the Camden Sailing Charters website. The experience we had was both relaxing and exhilarating all at the same time! From enjoying the beautiful scenery to taking a turn at the helm or tacking; the entire trip was wonderful and is sure to be a fond... More

My Fiancé and I charted Captain Nancy to take us out for a sunset cruise this past weekend. Little did my Fiancé know that during this trip I was going to Propose!!! Captain Nancy helped me orchestrate the entire evening from planing when during our sail to do the proposal, to even recommending a magnificent restaurant in town to go... More

From Austin, Texas the family vacationed to my wife's homeland. Maine! Searched for a day out on the harbor and found a few. My mind's eye kept me tracking back to Captain Nancy and "Segacious" in Camden. Glad I followed my gut! She and Captain Nancy were the best. She and Segacious were the best. Definitely one of the highs... More

My son and I sailed with Captain Rowe on an educational charter in Penobscot Bay out of Camden in August, 2016. My family and I have vacationed in Camden for 30+ years, and we've taken a few different sailing trips in our time, and I can say this was by far the best experience we've had. We had a 4... More

Took the Lewis French schooner for a 4 day trip . Amazing food, crew and nature. The Dolphins were swimming next to our boat and seals sunning on the rocks. Watching the blue moon while sailing and lobster bakes on the beach were unforgettable. Our crew and captain were first rate.

Nancy was fantastic! We really enjoyed our time on her boat. The sail was beautiful, with perfect wind and conditions. The area around Camden is gorgeous, and Nancy knows it very well. She is very passionate about sailing and showing the islands around Camden. Will definitely repeat. Highly recommended!

Loved this!!! A must for this location! My 3 daughters and I chose the schooner Olad. It was smaller and intimate. The captain and mate were great. The captain was totally approachable, very knowledgeable, and just plain fun! I wish this sail has been longer than the 2 hours!

My husband and two daughters (8 and 14) and I sailed with Nancy in early August as part of a vacation in the area. Nancy was great to work with. The originally scheduled day for our trip ended up being impossible due to weather, but Nancy worked with us to be sure we had a great experience. She was clear... More

On 8/17 our family, my husband and I and our 3 kids ages 4, 6 and 9, went out on a private 5pm sunset sailing excursion with Capt. Nancy. Nancy was a pleasure to deal with over the phone and email to set up our trip and just as so once we finally met in person. Our tour was one... More
