"We took our Mom for Mother's Day. Beautiful schooner, informed and friendly Captain Dave, and delicious wine tastings with appropriate pours; I can't imagine a more enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Hell, I will be asking friends to take me along so that I can experience it again! Complete pleasure. "

"The sail was great and the wine and food delicious. The boat was beautiful. There was not enough room for everyone to sit down, so don't know if that is a requirement or not. Also, it was quite windy (good for sailing), but that also made it a chilly experience. Nothing to be done about the weather. I could not comment on the booking experience, as this was received as a gift. We had a great time and it was easy to book our time after we received the gift. Janet Whiton ps--The harbor directions were misleading as to what subway exit. Had to walk a long way to get to the harbor. Also, it was not clear just exactly where the boat would be."

"This was the final event of a weekend of 50th birthday events...and was by far the best and most memorable. The sail, the crew and the crowd were all fantastic. We're coming back for more."
