What you'll do
Guests will board from the dock and we will take a tour of the boat, briefly discuss safe sailing practices and answer any questions. We will sail on the Saco River into Saco Bay and view Wood Island Lighthouse on the way to Old Orchard Beach. We will keep on the look out for marine wildlife. We have seen seals, porpoises, sharks and even whales. We will anchor off Old Orchard Beach pier where we will have front row seats to the Thursday night fireworks show. We will return to the same dock on which the guests boarded.
We offer coastal Maine sailing excursions on the Saco Bay & River. Abby & Bob are lifelong sailors and are both U.S. Coast Guard 50-tons Master's License Captains. We have owned and sailed our 42' sloop Mistress since 2014. We consider it our calling and deep joy to be able to share our boat and sailing experiences with all who come aboard. Enjoy the New England charm of Wood Island Light & Biddeford Pool. Soak in the wonder of an ocean sunset upon an endless expanse of horizon. Come see the long sandy beach of Old Orchard and the 8 fascinating islands of Saco Bay. Sailing is a great way to reconnect with nature's healing peace found in the winds, water and waves. Great for families looking to make meaningful memories.
