Peaceful ride, unexciting scenery - Captain Trip and crew were very friendly as we sailed on the 99 year old Bagheera, named after the panther in the The Jungle Book. It was very peaceful and a fun ride for someone who hasn't sailed before. We found the experience to be more about the quiet ride on the water than the Casco Bay scenery.

A great day on the water! - Seeing the forts from different angles and just being on the water. Also knowing the schooner was 99 years old and having it still in use. It was a perfect sailing day!

Great day on the bay - What a fun way to just get a feel for Portland. If you are looking for a "guided tour", this isn't for you, this is just a wonderful trip across the bay under sail. The captain and crew will answer any question you have about the area but mostly they just let you enjoy the ride.

Perfect day on the water! - Our sailing tour was fantastic! We traveled with adult/senior family members, and it was an amazing way to tour Casco Bay. Access to the pier was easy and the crew was friendly and informative. Beautiful weather and stunning fall foliage views made it a day to remember!

Great choice! - Great experience! Not a narrated tour but Skipper Kyle was informative and friendly to chat with. Very relaxing! It’s about 2 hrs which was just long enough.

The cruise was nice but no wind that day. - We saw alot of harbor seals and some awesome views. Would have liked to have had some more wind but still enjoyed the trip.

Beautiful boat ride - The ship was beautiful and the crew were really nice. We would have liked some narration regarding the ship, the area and some facts. We were given just a few facts about this particular ship. If you want just a beautiful boat ride in the harbor, I highly recommend this.
