Captains Ken and Ellen Barnes are newly-retired from 25 years as owners and operators of the famed historic Schooner Stephen Taber. Their reputations in warm hospitality and professional excellence are widely known. Over the years they have been featured nationally on ABC, NBC and CBS. They were showcased during their final cruise by CBS Sunday Morning. Ellen’s appearance on the Food Network airs frequently. Ellen’s cookbook, A Taste of the Taber, illustrated by Ken, has become a classic both afloat and ashore and is currently in its fifth edition.
