Great sail on the Owl with Matt. We would highly recommend this smaller sailboat for a more intimate experience, as opposed to a large group it's designed for six passengers or less. We were fortunate to have a private sale with just the two of...More

Went for a two hour morning sail on the Olaf with the captain/owner of the boat. Very comfortable boat and he made the trip enjoyable with his stories if the area and local fishing tales. Worth the time and money

We had a party of 6 in all age groups. The staff went out their way to make the two hour sail pleasant and informative. It was a beautiful day on the water.

A great experience! We booked online the night before and showed up the next morning - easy scheduling, extremely friendly folks, and a relaxing and informative short sail. Would definitely recommend this company for a simple, no-hassle excursion in the Camden area.
