I've never been sailing, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was an amazing experience that I am already missing! Can't wait to come back!

Nice to have an acoustic singer on the cruise. It was a bit cold so definitely dress warm. Was nice that they had blankets to share. Fun to be part of raising the sails.

NO. This is just a cruise around Bar Harbor and Frenchman's Bay. I don't know if there is a ferry to Nova Scotia.
