Captain Steven Perkins was born and raised in Wells to a family whose ties to the ocean around Wells Bay go back 200 years.

He assisted his father and grandfather in clamming and lobstering before college and worked on a party boat and dragger during school vacations. After completing a BA, Steve earned his USCG Captain’s license and soon had his own vessel. He worked the party fishing trade summers and rigged his boat for commercial fishing in the winters for several years out of Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. 


"Enjoyed our 90-minutes sailing cruise from Ogunquit, ME, very much. The captain and crew are very knowledgeable and were interesting to listen to. Also, the company was cautious about poor sailing weather and rescheduled us at no cost when it had to cancel our original sailing date. I recommend Sailing the Gift."

Mary Fischer

"A great experience. An hour and a half of sailing plus an abundance of background information on the Gulf of Maine, fishing stories, and information on the towns of Ogunquit and Wells."

Peter Young

"I had a great time sailing on The Gift. The Captain and Crew were very knowledgeable, higly experienced, and friendly. I encourage others to sail the open sea on The Gift and experience the sea in a way only possible on a sailboat."
