He sailed from a homeport on Casco Bay and has had the opportunity for
extensive exploration of the Coast of Maine. Captaining charters has
been a summertime avocation since 1990. A Bowdoin College graduate and

Maine's sheltered coves, intricate river systems, pine studded
islands and rockbound
peninsulas offer spectacular scenic vistas and open ocean waters, the finest
sailing along the Atlantic seaboard. Savor the sounds and smells that
define the sea. We share the history and local folklore of the area,
its maritime villages, lighthouses, and islands.
Seguin Island and Lighthouse
Look for seal, and if very lucky, a whale.
Shore birds such as osprey, diving terns, heron, and American bald
eagle are often sited. Watch lobsterman hauling and setting traps, we
can answer your questions about how it is done, and where best to
devour them :)
