What a great way to spend a couple of hours. The ship and crew were super and the sail was a complete joy in spectacular though a bit chilly weather. Would highly recommend.

I took my wife on a sunset sailing cruise with Silverlining for a birthday gift. We arrived at the designated time and boarded the vessel on time. Captain Jack was pleasant but didn't really interact with us much. He spent most of the trip talking with our sailing mates about Florida and how awful it is, and also deterred them from moving to Maine. While the conversation wasn't pleasant, the cruise was gorgeous and relaxing. It isn't something we plan to do again soon, but is probably great for tourists to the area.

PS - Maine IS a wonderful place to live, even if your tour guides won't tell you that!

Thank you Kayla for taking the time to review our service. Clearly my interactions with our other customers affected your experience, please accept my apology for this transgression. It is never my intention to negatively affect our guests experience, honestly I don’t remember the conversation but you do and that should not be your lasting impression of your time on the Silverlining. Sometimes I talk too much. I’ll try to remember your impressions and consider all my guests in the future. Maine is a wonderful place to live and I can’t believe that anything to the contrary came from me. Again, my apologies, Jack Gordon

I've gone sailing on the Silverlining numerous times over the past ten years and this is one experience that never fails to disappoint! There are two sailboats out of Perkins Cover and I've sailed them both. Hands down, the Silverlining is the best! The afternoons usually have the best winds in the summer, but the sunset cruise is just beautiful! We've often seen porpoises and seals. Well worth the money...and one of the best ways to get on the water in southern Maine.

I've been going to Ogunquit for years and love it but this sailing experience added a whole new level of delight. The website for reservations is user friendly and informative. I called to ask some specific questions and got all of them answered quickly and confidently. The boat is just beautiful with plenty of comfortable seating. Captain Jack and his crew were friendly and skilled. I highly recommend this sailing trip next time you are in Ogunquit. Very enjoyable 2pm sail!
