Our schooner ride was wonderful. We did a morning ride, so the group was small. Our captain and first mate were wonderful, they shared lots of really neat information about the boat, the town, the wildlife. Answered all our questions, and told some good stories!

We booked the sunset cruise but it was cloudy so that didn’t work. The guys were very nice and told stories but there was not any sailing. We used a motor to go out and to go back to dock and kind of just stood still. The other sail boat they owned that was ran by the owners flew by us. They had about four people on it. So kind of disappointed.

Our excursion aboard the schooner Surprise was delightful. The crew members were excellent and very familiar with the history of the area. The only problem was that, on the day we sailed, there was very little wind. The trip was wonderful nonetheless.

This was a wonderful experience. The weather and wind made for great sail. The Capt and Crew were both very informative and friendly. The fact that this is a smaller boat than some with a max of 29 made it easy to move around the boat. The fact that this is the 100th anniversary (she was launched in 1911) added an additional level of interest.The weather was luck, but I'm sure the crew always strives to give their guests a great sail

Thoroughly enjoyable two hours. This boat is 100 years old. The captain gave us much information about the history of the boat. His young woman mate was efficient and very kind to a young boy who wanted to help. She was patient and instructive. I was impressed. Overall a great experience.
