“Excellent experienced crew - felt safe, had fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We booked this cruise at the last minute on the last day of our vacation. An earlier attempt at a sailing tour out of Camden was rained out. They were very accommodating with our last minute reservation.
I pay attention to safety - the ship, the crew - and I felt very safe on this trip. The crew had a very professional yet friendly manner. It was clear the captain and first mate were very experienced. The ship was well very maintained.

“Very nice, would do it again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our time on this beautiful boat (2 hrs). Comfortable seating was limited, so we stayed but in our chairs rather than walking around the deck. Prepare to get chatty with your fellow sight-seers.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

First time on a sailing boat and won't be our last. Captain and crew very helpful and informative - a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours seeing the coastline.

“Great 2 hr sail!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Totally unplanned day...called last minute and luckily there was a cancellation. They only take 20 ppl out. Crew members were low key, pleasant. You could tell they enjoy their work. Perfectly smooth sail out by Walkers Point, Bumpkin Island and Goat Island. You can BYOB and any other food you like to snack on. Waters are provided as well as plenty of binoculars. Would love to sail again....soon!

“Peaceful Afternoon on Water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

We sailed on the Eleanor with another family and had a wonderful experience. The Captain and Crew are professional, friendly and truly want each guest to have a nice experience. They provide bottled water, blankets and even binoculars. At one point my young son needed to use the restroom and they were easily able to accommodate that in their lavatory below deck.

Very relaxing afternoon, and one that I will definitely do again next summer.
