“Captain Mann Rocks!!”

Reviewed 14 August 2013

My wife and I took our two teenage boys (ages 13 & 15) out for a charter with Captain Don Mann on his 35-foot Ericsson sailboat. Our youngest had just taken sailing classes earlier in the summer and was interested while the 15-year old was waffling. All had a great time!! Don Mann is not only an experienced captain, but he has got a perfect personality for chartering, taught us all about the boat, how to handle it and even had us take turns steering. This was by far the best experience of our trip to Maine. We spent three hours in 15 to 20 knot winds on a stunningly blue summer day sailing on Penobscot Bay. This was so much better than being on a crowded schooner and well worth the price. We had the boat racing along, heeled well over and gave everyone the thrill of day's sailing on the bay, took in some of the sights and had some laughs. The boys were engaged and both of them loved it. I can't recommend Don enough and want to thank him again for a wonderful day on the bay.

The afternoon sail with Captain Don was a highlight of our trip to Mid-Coast Maine. Captain Don made our family feel very comfortable and took an interest in knowing what we would like to experience during our charter. We wanted a little bit of everything...sightseeing of the Penobscot Bay including wildlife and islands, some sailing instruction and the opportunity to spend three hours relaxing on his beautiful sailboat. We checked everything off our list during this delightful sail on the Liberation with Captain Don.

We loved our sail with Captain Don - he personalized our trip based on what we desired and the time we had. We had a gorgeous sail to North Haven where we stopped for lunch. He made the whole experience a fun day on the water, and provided us with lots of color commentary along the way.

We had a wonderful time sailing with Captain Don in Camden, Maine! It was a beautiful ride on a 35ft sail boat at a very reasonable price. You can't beat this deal. We were able to customize our own private trip. Captain Don was a delight!

Sailing with Captain Don makes you feel like you're on mini-vacation in the most beautiful Penobscot Bay.
