Capt Duff was fantastic and I am now a hero to my in laws who wanted to sail on a schooner during their recent visit from England. Capt Duff was entertaining and affable. The bay is so beautiful at sunset highly recommended!

Great sailboat trip! Inexpensive way to explore the islands off Portland, Maine. Captain Duff was knowledgeable and very outgoing. Sunset cruise was the best. At sun down, he fired the cannon. Highly recommended!

The Glory is a beautiful boat, and Captain Duff was an amazing host. Our sunset sail was the best part of our trip, the best way to see the bay and coast of Maine. I can't recommend this enough. The two hours go by so...More
