'T was a blustery October day with a cold (20 knot?) wind from the north, so these landlubbers were not sure if it was a good idea to get out on the water. Well, it was. We had a great time. We felt safe in the hands of a capable crew. Besides getting some basic information on the skill of sailing we received interesting information about the area in general as well as specific historical features pointed out along the shore. Blankets were provided for whoever was getting too cold.
We found it to be definitely worth the 40 dollars and won't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Went for a 2pm sail the second last week of September. The crew (Ben and Keith) were very friendly and informative, and the sail excursion itself was very fun! Being from more inland-Canada, this was a great way to get out on the ocean, and enjoy the water! We even saw seals! It's important to dress properly so you can enjoy the cruise. We have recommended this to friends, as we felt it was definitely worth the price.

Two hours well spent with very friendly and knowledgeable crew. Learnt a lot about the area and even let customers raise sails and man the helm! Saw porpoises, bald eagles and osprey. Wonderful!

This was a thoroughly delightful experience. Our guide (Merrill) was full of interesting information and humor, and made the trip even more enjoyable. The boat was sleek and well kept, and our group appreciated how the crew explained each thing that they were doing. The tour took us along the harbor, past the lighthouse and just into the open water. We saw a couple of seals, some birds doing unusual things, and got a splendid view of Lunenburg. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone and everyone (who doesn't get seasick.)

Great 2 hour cruise! Lunenburg is beautiful from the water. The crew was informative about the history of the town.
