“Highlight of our stay on Chappaquiddick”

Sail Magic Carpet - Private Charters
Reviewed 6 August 2016

The Magic Carpet is a beautifully elegant sailboat. At the helm are the seasoned, friendly & chill co-captains, h/w team of Lee & Todd. Such a relaxing experience. Everyone from ages 10 on up had a terrific time. BYO. Worth every penny. I wished we had gone longer than 2 hours!

What a wonderful, relaxing and beautiful experience. The owners were very kind and offered numerous times to anyone interested to hold the wheel or help out if they so chose. My mom, daughter and I all thought it was the highlight of our visit. Beautiful boat. There were @ 12 people on our sail. Plenty of room to move around a bit. Not commercialized at all. Very personal feeling.

We go out on Magic Carpet every time we visit MV. This is one of the best ways to enjoy a day on the Vineyard.

Lee and Todd are just gracious hosts and make the sail a fun event. We took the 3:30 sail and had 2 other couples with us. Headed down Edgartown harbor and sailed by billionaires row. These cottages are just unbelievable as are the yachts that are moored there. Todd gives a running commentary on the owners and their homes if you ask him about the homes.

Once out of the harbor I get a chance to take the helm. What a hoot sailing a vintage yacht in calm water. The boat handles like a dream and I can't wipe the grin off my face! Even our friends that don't know how to sail are given a chance to steer the boat.

Bring along a bottle of wine and snacks to really enjoy the day. This is just great value for a day on the water. Simply Fantastic!!!

Owner strung us along as she evaluated her "profitability" of the sail (they didn't want to sail unless they had a minimum of six people). They cancelled multiple times and provided excuses like "not enough wind" and "too windy". Finally, Lee revealed: "it's just not worth it to take you and your children out". After years of sailing with them 2014 and 2015 were a disappointment. Don't waste your time with these greedy and selfish tourist trappers!
