Sail on the "Chrissy" for a truly memorable sail aboard one of the last original working Maine lobster sloops. Enjoy sailing on Frenchman Bay, seeing spectacular sights of Bald Eagles, porpoises, puffins and the like. Sailing on the Chrissy would make a great gift for that romantic couple. For a private charter is only 250$ for a two hour cruise.

We arrived at the docks 15 min before our 1:00 sail as directed. The "girls" at the booth just looked at us and didn't even acknowledge our presence, until I asked who worked there. Then one said all of us, but didn't even ask what we were there for! I had to direct the conversation that we were there to... More

One of the people we were traveling with called a couple of weeks before we were set to arrive to make a reservation for the afternoon sail on the day we were scheduled to arrive. The person who answered the phone said there had been some mechanical problems with the boat and to call back closer to our desired sail... More

Excellent 2 hour sailboat ride in and around the Bar Harbor area. Brian was an excellent host. He would provide great conversation and description of the boat and things we were seeing or would remain quiet and just let us enjoy the sound of the breeze blowing through the sails and the water lapping against the hull of the boat....

This is an awesome cruise. It's very affordable and intimate. No more than 6 people per cruise. We were lucky to be the only 3. Capt Ryan was terrific!!! We did the sunset cruise. It was amazing and an awesome view of the Margaret Todd. Do this cruise!!!

Good stuff. Apparently, the fleet that includes Chrissy and her schooner sisters has welcomed "Calynda" and we were fortunate enough to help inaugurate her debut in the bay. We highly recommend this service. The two hour charter (we chose sunset) gets you out in the bay with the crew providing commentary on the wildlife, history and whatever else comes up... More
