Maine destinations vary depending on length of charter. A day charter might have no destination...just follow the wind. A one-night charter may find us in Boothbay Harbor, or Casco Bay. Longer charters can take us up to Penobscot Bay or Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island.
During the winter months, charters in the Exumas begin and end at Staniel Cay, midway along the 100-mile chain of Exuma islands. Abacos charters begin and end in Marsh Harbour.
Charters in the Abacos are based out of Marsh Harbour, on Great Abaco Island.
In Maine, the day begins at 10AM. Set sail and head out the Sheepscot River, passing 3 lighthouses in the first 5 miles. Looking out for seals, porppoise and whales, we might have lunch underway, or drop the anchor in a quiet cove. A Day charter returns to the Marina about 4PM. If you're out for an overnight, we'll drop the hook or pick up a mooring about 5PM. You can explore ashore while dinner is being prepared. After dinner, enjoy the stars, or curl up with a good book.
In the Bahamas, a typical day might start with a quick dip in the sparkling clear waters. After breakfast, a sail up island to that special snorking spot, or maybe a paddle in the kayaks through the mangroves. A walk on a secluded sandy beach is always a possibility.
