Capt Bob provides a great sailing experience that all family members can enjoy. He and his crew are very competent and informative that makes this attraction well worth the nominal cost. I would definitely do another cruise on "Morning in Maine".

Trying to decide if to make reservations or should i wait to see if weather permits, in case for some reason we can't make it in time for sailing if I do make reservations? Which time of the day is best for sailing... Thanks. We will be there on October 2, 2016.

We are coming up in June, about June 7th and 8th. Is it better to go out in the morning or in the afternoon?

What is the cost per person? Do I need to make reservations days ahead?

The typical cost is $40 per person. It is a good idea to call ahead for reservations. Bring cash, as they do not accept credit cards. This will be the best $40 you will ever spend!
