Romantic Sunset Cruise for 2

The enchanted evening starts with sails pointed towards the rising moon over
Penobscot Bay. Settle in and fill your senses with all that is around you. As
the evening unfolds laugh with new friends, or snuggle in and quietly watch

of frolicking porpoise and seals bobbing as they watch us glide by. Look up
and you are treated to the effortless flight of osprey and occasional bald eagle
as they scan the panorama for dinner below. As our crew attends to the details
of making sure you are pampered and comfortable. We encourage you to join in. This evening

It doesn't get better than this! The bright mid-day sun and the
building afternoon sea breeze will provide for a spirited sail across the Penobscot
Bay. Help raise the sails, take a turn at the wheel or stroll around the deck
and imagine all of the countless others who have gazed out over the same waters,
John Paul Jones, Paul Revere. Is that another schooner, a British man-o-war
or is it the quiet passage of an escaped slave on her way to freedom? Doesn't
really matter for the moment you are one with the wind and sea. We can even stop for a short visit on a deserted island for a bit of beach combing.

Here's a great way to see all the upper Penobscot Bay. We have time to sail up to the mouth of the Penobscot River to Story Point Light House. Then we can head back down the bay to Holbrooke Island for a gourmet sty
le Lunch and a chance to explore a remote island full of birds and wildlife. As you pause and take time
to nourish your body, feed your spirit as well. Back aboard ViVA we can take a tour of Castine Harbor with a brisk cup of tea or gourmet coffee aboard a
grand sailing yacht. One can not help but be taken back to another space. We
dream of another time, another adventure. Is the JB's famous ketch? And look
a schooner making its way down the bay! Could it be filled with lumber and brick
bound for Boston? As the wind quickens, we return to the moment. When the bright
sun warms the day join us as the building sea breeze brings out the sailor in
all but the most faint of heart. The after noon sail is usually the most exhilarating as we head back across the bay to Belfast.
As wind, sea and boat work in balanced harmony, we glide effortlessly across
the water. Back just in time for ice cream.
