Sailing Tours

Departing Daily In-Season from The Nonantum Marina – The Pineapple Ketch

The Pineapple Ketch offers a two hour sail along the Southern Maine Coast. Departing daily from the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, the tour can be as hands on or as laid back as you would like; haul lines, raise sail, take a turn at the helm or just sit back and take in the beautiful views and fresh ocean air.

Whether it’s an early morning sail, an afternoon adventure, or a sunset excursion, the Pineapple Ketch has just the trip for you. A sail aboard the Pineapple is not your regular coastal tour with scripted dialogue that is repeated hundreds of times a summer. The crew is made up of local marine enthusiasts who are all more than eager to talk with you about anything from sailing, lobstering, and fishing, to boating history and pirate lore, navigation, the winds, Maine (New England for that matter) or just our favorite recommendations on where to eat and what not to miss while in the Kennebunks. 

The Pineapple can accommodate up to 12 passengers and is available for private charter. We look forward to hosting brides and grooms for their weddings, showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, wedding delivery or the actual “big event.” We’ve hosted birthday celebrations aboard the Pineapple as well as island excursions, light house tours, family reunions, private parties, corporate retreats and several romantic engagements. The two hour trip is $45 per person, and the charter rate is $450 for two hours with only $100 per hour after that. We offer complimentary soda and water and encourage you to bring something to snack on as well as beer, wine or any beverage of choice.

We look forward to sailing with you aboard the Pineapple Ketch.
