Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Picture yourself relaxing on the deck of this beautiful 65- foot schooner as she sails out of Gloucester harbor on a light southwesterly breeze. Join us for a two-hour sail and get a taste for what it was like to sail on a fishing schooner a hundred years ago. Help the crew raise the sails, or just sit back and take in the sights and sounds of Gloucester's coastline. Some of our weekend public sails feature music. We offer group rates. And we specialize in private charters for weddings, corporate entertainment, teambuilding, birthdays and more. The Lannon is a great place for a party!

Enjoyable trip except for having to listen to the captain mouth off conspiracy theories. We were a captive audience. Not as relaxing as we had hoped.

So pretty at the Sunset Cruise. They had Irish singers that just set a wonderful mood. They served wine and let the passengers bring sandwiches, etc. They also served some snacks. Grate photo ops of the ocean and the homes along the way. Definately recommend.

We didn't sign up because of the rum and cigars, but it was the only time we had for a sail. This is an annual tradition, and many people knew each other, so right off we felt a bit out of place. The rum punch was good and they brought around 2 different types of rum to taste, but I cant drink it strait. Since we were on the water, the cigar smoke was not a problem, but flying ashes were. However - the views are lovely, the setting sun and being under sail made all the difference. Like others, I wish there had been some interaction between captain/crew and passengers.
The schooner is beautiful, spotless and we did have a nice evening sail.

A nice 2 hour sail off the coast of Gloucester. The price is expensive ( $40 per adult ) but we had a groupon for half the price. It is a clean vessel that is only 3 years old and the crew was very helpful. The seating capacity is 49 and it was a little tight because we were at full capacity but it was still enjoyable.

We had a wonderful time on the Thomas E. Lannon today. A must if you are visiting the historic town of Gloucester, MA. The Thomas E. Lannon has a great crew and they give you a "taste"of what it must have been like to sail out to new experiences in the North Atlantic.
