Interesting vessel

Toured this vessel with our nephew and received a great tour with explanations for every area visited. Very interesting history of the ship. Worth your while if it's in port

If the ship is in port, which it is more than not, simply board and ask about a tour. We were given a pretty extensive and very enjoyable tour by a current student. If you're interested in ships and/or training of the next generation of mariners, this is a rewarding way to spend a couple of hours in the quiet... More

I visited Castine as a travel book suggested that the town was an excellent place for downtown shops, antiques, and historic town. Unfortunately, the town has only one or two shops and is very small and quiet. Not much of anything going on or to see. It is a very old town with the first house dating back to late... More

Free tour of the training ship by a student at the academy. It was a rare opportunity to tour the ship and learn something about modern maritime training.

This is the most excellent place in the entire world. Belfast, ME is the love of my life. Everyone should come here. But not really, because that would spoil it.

What a treat! The kids and I had a free tour of a magnificent traing ship. Our guide, Dylan, was so approachable and informative. I feel a connection now when I look at the ship having been on the inside, topside and in the bowels of it!

Fabulous part of the country, every sense is touched in the most wonderful way. Tough part is mosquitoes, as long as you have plenty of deet, and I did, you'll enjoy your time immensely.

We were very lucky to have the captain and only four of us on the impromptu tour. Educational and fun. A good way to spend an hour.
