What a great time we had. All the kids helped hoist the sales. Later the captain let them take the helm. Peaceful sail. My husband and I went 19 years ago on our honeymoon and returned with the kids. It did not disappoint.

Hi We will be coming to Camden in either September or early October. 1. Can you quote the price per person for a two hour sail for September and October weekdays? 2. Can we book the cruise when we arrive or do we need to make reservations in advance? Thank you in Advance.
