The boat owners “captained” and “first mated” this schooner tour - they were both knowledgeable and entertaining while being extremely genuine and personable the entire trip. It was a great way to see Maine from the water!

This boat was built long time ago. Can’t remember. I think the captain said 1920s? Well whatever it’s been kept in good condition. The staff on board was really nice. I enjoyed my time. Bring a light jacket.

Will and Nicole took great care of us with lots of stories and info about Camden and the boat. They really made an effort to connect with everyone onboard and we agreed that made the difference between a cold sail and a highlight of our trip to Maine. You can bring your own snacks and alcohol and they’ll let you drive the boat if you want a photo op. There is also a bathroom to use. It was a little cold when we sailed but they had blankets onboard for us that helped a lot. We saw the Margaret Todd in Bar Harbor and we all agreed that although it is a beautiful vessel, there is no way a boat that big could match the individual attention you get on the Surprise. This lived up to all the great reviews I had read on TA before booking.

This was a wonderful sunset sail. The captain and his mate were very interesting as they told us about the area as we sailed. The surprise was when my wife volunteered to raise/lower a sail and also steered the ship. This made her very happy. Affordable and worth it.
