Worth every penny. Peaceful and relaxing. Friendly crew who made it fun too. Would do it again if I had more time on the Island.

We've sailed with Capt. Jim a few times. Sailing distance depends on weather and wind and last night was perfect . Went past the harbor jetties for a great sunset cruise. Dress warm just in case and you can BYOB. Lots of fun.

Even the overcast sky did not spoil this sunset trip. The captain knows so many interesting stories about the history of the island, it was such a please to get to know him. You can bring your own food and drinks, so thanks to our fellow travelers we had a lovely evening with wine, cheese plate and fascinating conversations! Everything... More

Great ship, lovely owners/captain. Left us wishing the trip was another hour or two. All in all, we recommend it. You get to see the harbor & entrance to same from a great vantage point. Go for it!!

Having summered on the island for decades, I always turned my nose up at the Endeavor as a tourist trap. How wrong I was !! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our sail on this lovely sail boat . We now encourage our friends and guest to enjoy a beautiful trip out on the harbor on the Endeavor. The boat... More

Who could go to Nantuckett and not take a sail? This is a wonderful evening cruise. Have taken it 3-4 times and love it. The crew is great.

Sixteen (16) years ago, my husband chartered this boat to ask me to marry him. It was amazing! Now...for our 15th anniversary we are going back out on the boat. This boat (and the island) is amazing!

Captain Jim and crew did an excellent job and God provided us the best weather. It was so relaxing and enjoyable with great views of Nantucket. They allow you to bring your own food and drinks. Out of all the things we did on the island, this was by far the best and priced the most reasonable. Captain Jim loves... More

We booked a private cruise for a party of eight. It was a highlight of a long weekend on Nantucket. Capt. Jim provided lots of information about Nantucket and the sights we were seeing. We had a leisurely cruise as part of a birthday celebration. I highly recommend this great way to experience Nantucket.
