Owner description: A two hour sail and private charters out of Camden Harbor on the elegant Surprise, lets you experience both Camden and Penobscot Bay in a truly special and memorable way.
Reviewed 19 October 2017 via mobile

The Surprise is a beautifully maintained boat run (and owned) by a great couple. The boat ride was very smooth, guests were invited to help raise sails and even get behind the wheel. They provided some background on key points of interest and were very happy to answer any questions. This is a really great way to spend a couple of hours on the water!

Although we set sail on a cloudy very cool morning it was a great experience with great staff. Would highly recommend the sailing trip on the Schooner Surprise.

Safe, relaxing, fun outing on a vintage sailboat. What could be better? We had a great outing on a glorious afternoon. Perfect weather and perfect gentlemen as the captain and two crew. A couple of sailor poems recited, expert maneuvering to pick up a dropped cap, a short "race" with a crewmember's family who happened to be out on the same afternoon, and a little history of the boat and bay. Great day!

Fab trip even with very little wind. Captain Rob and first mate Laird very knowledgeable and chatty. Captains long eye meant we saw the bald eagles,porpoises and seals.
