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.

We have been 2 years in a row, and the kids enjoy it more each time. Adults can sit up in seperate area and enjoy the sailing as well.

There was nothing I disliked. My sister and I had a wonderful, smooth sailing trip on this beautiful boat with about 9 other people. Captain shared many interesting historical and local tidbits; Wesley, his assistant, was very courteous and helpful. 4:00 was a perfect time of day for this cruise. The fee was very reasonable.

We sailed up and down the harbor (avoiding the winds)>Captain Jim filled us in on what we were seeing onshore and on the water. He was willing to have passengers assist the mate with the sails. Amazing boat which Jim built himself over 30 years ago. The sunset was beautiful.
