We booked a sunset sail through the web site, confirmed time, date and meeting location by phone. Waited on the dock for an hour at the pre arranged time, Jessie was a no show.

Had a very relaxing sail. It was nice to see Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain from the water. Scheduling was flexible and it's an affordable way to try some sailing. It was nice to get on the water and away from other tourists.
