We had a wonderful time with Captain Jim on his beautiful boat. We were celebrating a friends birthday with a pre-dinner cocktail sail. We were able to bring lots of wine, cheese and laughs, and Captain Jim and his assistant tolerated our frequent photo taking :). Great time!

Captain Jim was outstanding for our 7th grade class trip. He explained the basics of sailing, some geography of the island and the ocean and history of the area. Great interactions with the kids. Really well done.

We booked Endeavor Sailing for a bachelorette group and I must admit, had some hesitations of the size of the boat since we were 13 girls! To our surprise, the boat felt as big as any other we've ever been on. Since we were floating at sea watching the sunset, it wasn't a big deal to be on the bow... More

We were very much looking forward to a sail with this company. However, our flights were changed due to circumstances beyond our control and we would no longer be on the island in time for the sail. Unfortunately, due to the company's cancellation policy, we are unable to get our money back. We were not reserved for a private sail,... More

We all loved this excursion. Captain Jim was knowledgeable and entertaining. The kids got to help raise the sails and steer the boat. 1-½ hours was the right length of time for our kids. It was great.

From start to finish this company was top notch. Sue was more than helpful and patient throughout the booking process. She helped me decide on which cruise and time would best fit our large family. Capt. Jim was great. He knows his island, is humble and made for pleasant company during our sail. He answered our elementary questions in great... More

Glorious sunny sail on Vintage Schooner with friendly and informative Captain at the helm. Guests were encouraged to help with the sails. Wonderful 2 hours on Nantucket Bay while learning of its history. Occasional sightings of whales or seals were mentioned, but none observed on the day we went. Sunset on the water must be even more amazing. Maybe next... More

Beautiful way to see Nantucket shoreline from the sea, much as Whalers would have done 150 years ago. Guests are encouraged to work the sails and "lower the boom". May see a few seals or whales too, but not guaranteed. Just a great way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny day. They offer sunset sails and romantic... More

Captain Jim was a great host. He was very generous in his replies to our "land lubber" questions and his explanations of the sport of sailing. We sailed just before sunset and throughout the cruise watched the sun slowly drop beyond the horizon - it was a memory making experience.. Brought wine and cheese etc. Met really nice shipmates and... More

We were a family of 5 (3 kids-10, 14, 17) and not only was the sail beautiful but the captain is a great guy to have a conversation with and knows so much about the island. We brought snacks and drinks, had a ball. On the sail with us were other families and single who were on a trip together,... More
