He offers the memorable experience you are looking for that only a genuine local can provide.

 

FIRST MATE BROOK

Brook grew up here in Bath, Maine and spent he last half of his senior year of high school aboard the schooner Harvey Gamage. Now he spends his summers aboard the Leeward and his winters skiing in Colorado. Who says you can't be young and wise?

DECKHAND PEPPER

Pepper loves to eat, sleep and lick fish! She happily eats treats and snoozes most of the day under the captain's chair.

THE LEEWARD

The Leeward is a 32-foot USCG-certified passenger boat. Her original purpose was as a U.S. Navy launch, so she is safe, sturdy and designed to carry passengers. The Leeward is very comfortable and outfitted with state-of-the-art electronics and safety equipment. She is certified to carry 30 passengers and is equipped with an onboard head. Also, the engine room around her John Deere marine engine has one-inch soundproofing, she is so quiet you will be amazed.

 

THE GUPPY

The Guppy is the original Fish'n'Trips Charters boat. She has been in Captain Ethan's family since she was brand new; first, as a lobster boat with a wheelhouse then re-rigged by Captain Ethan himself. This 21-footer now sports a center console and is an inshore fishing weapon. She has full electronics and safety equipment. This classic Maine built downeast style boat is safe, comfortable and proven!
