Beautiful sunset sail on the Endeavor, wonderful way to spend our last night on Nantucket. Captain was both very hospitable and knowledgeable and the sun did not disappoint. The boat is not super big so it was not crowded. There were all adults on our sail but this would be a nice family outing as well.

We had a beautiful private excursion with Jim and James today. They are both very professional, charming and entertaining. We really enjoyed our trip! Jim (the father) was wonderful about sharing interesting facts about the island and history in general.

We went on the sunset cruise with our 2 kids and had a wonderful time. Captain Jim was great- very informative about Nantucket and gave us great travel tips. Even though it was a romantic type of tour- our kids had a blast. The captain had a great sense of humor and told us funny stories. The nice thing about... More

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
