We are extremely happy to announce that we will begin our 26th season with Surprise tomorrow morning, May 26 . Our schedule will feature departures at 10:30, 1:30 and 4:30 until July 1 when our summer schedule begins. The Surprise which is in her 94th year looks quite amazing and has responded well to our efforts with paint and varnish as well as the skilled crew at Rockport Marine who do the heavy lifting literally. As always, we look forward to greeting your guests and providing them with a sailing experience that will ensure that they return to us every year. We continue to be amazed and encouraged by the enthusiastic response of an overwhelming number of repeat passengers we welcome on our deck. We appreciate your support and we will continue to ensure that your guests will bring home fond memories of their experience onboard Surprise.
We wish you “fair winds” in your business and we would love to see you onboard as our guests anytime you take the opportunity. Now it is time to get the weatherman to provide a nice summer pattern.

When you serve a hot breakfast everyday for 7 years, you start to notice trends in food. First it was a concern for diabetes, then it was gluten free, then vegetarian, then vegan – now raw. Jesse is an amazing cook – I often kid with the guests that I think Jesse’s 20 years as a lawyer prepared him to be a short order cook. He researches everything he does. When he sets his mind to a task, he goes at it head on and tries his best. Jes has truly created an awesome morning menu. This Maine B&B that has a complimentary breakfast menu that is made to order. We hope people order as much or as little as they like, we don’t want anyone walking away hungry. But more importantly, we like making items that are unique to our guests diets. Jesse is great at learning about different diets and he does a great job with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options. Jes does not have any dietary restrictions, other than being a locavore, so he makes traditional american meals just as good. He loves his bacon and sausage (local of course). To further widen our breakfast options, and our own eating routines, I recently bought Jes a Vitamix for his birthday. We will now be able to offer our guests a raw green shake in the morning. Green shakes consist of vegetables and fruits. Lesson learned with the green smoothie in the picture – Kale, Beet, Flax seed, Blueberries – once you put beets in anything, it will be beet colored. This tasted great and the guest loved it.
