My husband and I had a lovely trip around Lunenburg Harbour. It was relaxing and interesting and, of course, very pretty. Merrill was a great skipper and entertainer.

It was supposed to be a boat ride to see the whales, but it's very rare to see any, so if you want to see some whales you are not in the right place. It's a boat ride with historical explanations, wich is extremely interesting,...More

My group of 16 was fortunate to get to sail on the Eastern Star’s final sail of the season. The three working the boat were considerate, enjoyable, and skilled. They offered information and reassurance about the boat’s steep leaning-which I didn’t know to expect. It...More
