I love the smallness of the Pineapple Ketch because the fewer number of sailors makes for a more intimate sailing experience. Sailing off the coast of Kennebunkport is always a treat because you get to see many of the large "Summer Cottages" as well as...More

Enjoyed a cruise on the Pineapple Ketch on my birthday. It was the perfect way to spend a relaxing two hours. The captain and crew were very friendly and helpful. We saw the coastline from a whole new point of view. It was beautiful.
