Decided we wanted to see Portland by sailing and took a beautiful 2 hour sail on on Casco Bay. Saw all the islands, forts and lighthouses. The weather was perfect and the crew was exceptional. Recommend it highly.

We took the Bagheera out for July 4th weekend. Gorgeous boat and beautiful weather. Perfect for getting away from the city for a bit. The crew is very friendly and capable. Wear sunscreen and bring wine. One suggestion: the confirmation email doesn't tell you where...More
