Grab a nice bottle of wine and dinner to go and get ready for a lovely sail that culminates with a sunset over the water. The crew handled the boat well positioned the boat perfectly so that it was exactly in front of the lighthouse with the light of the setting sun streaming behind the lens of the lighthouse. Now...

My family and I enjoyed our sunset sail , that was a wonderful time in Edgartown. we went around the bay. The view around the light house was gorgeous. I recomend do it if you go to Marthas vineyard. The best thing it was very relaxing , we brought with us wine and crackers really amazing time.

Wy wife and I enjoyed our sail around the bay in Edgartown. We did the 6pm cruise which was nice for the sunset. It was very relaxing which was what we were looking for. We bought a bottle of wine with us for the sail and drank as we sat up front by the catamaran. We didn't see much, a... More

Soothing sailing on a large vessel was interesting and relaxing. Visiting with a banker and native camper made the trip enriching and memorable.

A definite to do if you are visiting Edgartown!! I called to schedule a cruise and I was immediately informed that the day and time I requested had no reservations. I was advised that I would be called the day of the cruise to notify me if the cruise was cancelled. Luckily many more reserved spots so our cruise was... More

Hi Cori S, thanks so much for your nice review! We really love getting kids of all ages up to help sail the boat. It is really a thrill to help handle a boat and sail of the size of Mad Max, and becomes a memory that children have forever! We look forward to seeing you next year!! More

This was probably the worst sail we have ever been on, for various reasons! First of all the staff is NOT friendly, at all. We never even met Captain Mike, and his first mate gave us brief safety instructions and then never heard from him again. When we left to leave the boat, of course the first mate is standing...

I was not expecting the sailboat to be so large! The staff was so friendly and fun! You could bring your own snacks and drinks, there were families friends and couples on our ride so it is fun for all ages! It was so beautiful. It was choppy at parts because it was a bit windy, but it made the... More

Did not take the sailing adventure but stayed at the marina. Great vantage point of the harbor activities. There was always something going on! Water taxis rocked the marina a bit going in and out but that's boating!

Made a reservation to sail on the boat with my kids. Showed up at the time only to be told we are not going. We were the only people that had booked and it wasn't worth their time to take us out. We were a party of 4 and they wouldn't do out with less than 6. I said fine,... More

We are so very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with us, and we are a little confused, as we have a greater minimum than 6 to take our boat out. When our customers make reservations to sail with us, we let each and every one know that we do have a minimum number of guests that... More

I loved the sailing but you do need to bring food and or drinks if you want on the 2 hour sail. We sailed out into the ocean and then back and it was marvelous being out in the water with sails out rather than some tours that have their motor on.
