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.

My husband and I took the sunset cruise on a beautiful, clear evening and had a great time! The crew is fantastic - very friendly and knowledgable about the area - and the boat was quite comfortable.

We recently visited Nantucket and "sailed" aboard the Endeavor. The entire time on the boat was 1 1/2 hours at a cost of $40 per person. We motored out into the ocean and the sails were up for a total of 20 minutes. There was plenty of wind, but we never "sailed". We bobbed out in the water and then... More

Captain Jim has been offering excursions aboard the Endeavor for 31 years. One of the reasons for his success is that he makes the safety and the comfort of his guests a priority. Occasionally, which was the case the day you sailed, the wind comes up very strong out of the northeast and the waves start to build out in... More

We went out on the Endeavor and had a wonderful time. It didn't hurt that we got a great night night to sail and catch the sunset. Captain Jim made the trip, though. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and has some great stories. However, he doesn't make the trip about him and enjoys the serenity of sailing along watching the sunset.... More

Our family sailed on the Endeavor yesterday in the afternoon. It was a beautiful way to experience Nantucket. We were able to participate in sailing and enjoy the day. Great family activity, learned interesting facts about Nantucket and had a wonderful time. We recommend this trip

This was the best sailing trip! Great sunset, Captain Jim was fantastic - knew lots of history of the island, told great stories, perfect weather and incredible sunset! Loved every minute of this trip. And the first mate, James, took pictures of us while Captain Jim made sure we were perfectly framed with the sunset behind us!

Excellent evening cruise, rained all week so no sunset but still a lovely way to end the day. Very smooth sailing on this large vessel with Captain and assistant. Bring rain gear and drinks/munchies to complete the 1.5 hour cruise. Persons with difficulties could easily handle getting on and off board.
