This a beautiful 57' schooner rigged yacht built for speed. It's beam is only 12' and it's heavy, so sails smooth as ice. Nothing like helping to raise sails once a boat of that size cuts the engine! A bright, sardonically likeable skipper-Gus, added refreshingly...More

This trip was wonderful. We participated in the Parade of Sail and saw beautiful schooners. The hosts were so sweet and the lunch was delish. We loved the trip!

What a great time we had with the Captain and Crew. Everyone was friendly and it was very informative about the area and this 1918 Schooner. They have a book with all of it's history.

We took the sunset sail on Tuesday with live music and homemade desserts. It's been many years since I've been on a schooner so I was a little apprehensive about the ride. They did not disappoint down yo the fine details. We were able to...More

Yes... great experience. There's only one sail with the music and desert... Also, if you ask, you can help them set the sails and steer the boat for awhile
