My group of four stayed on the M.S Resolute which is a bed and breakfast afloat in Oak Bluffs. The owners also operate the Sea Witch. We had an opportunity to go out on the Sea Witch to view the fireworks during the July 4th weekend. It was amazing to see the fireworks from water! The operators, John and Susan,... More

We had a great afternoon sail with Sue and Captain John. In past summers, we enjoyed sailing on the Sea Witch with our kids - we went fishing, swam off the boat, and Captain John gave the kids pointers about sailing, which were great. This time, we went with just adults and had a wonderful tour of island sights with... More

Just completed my second day sail from Vineyard Haven on Sea Witch. This time brought my two children and a nephew(all about college age). We really wanted to be part of the crew and do some real sailing ourselves so we picked a windy afternoon (steady 15-20 knot winds). Capt. John was ready for us with the bimini already removed...

If you like to sail this is the boat for you. A beautiful, heavy yawl that loves a breeze and is at home in the Nantucket sound. Susan and John make everyone comfortable whether you're a beginner who just likes the wind and the waves (or some brie) or have a little experience and want to feel what it's like... More

We went sailing yesterday with John and Susan and had the opportunity to participate in sailing Sea Witch. It was a beautiful windy day, my dad and I were behind the wheel the whole trip. Captain John was very knowledgeable and we maneuvered all day under sail while we saw other sailboats with their motors on. We learned so much... More

Visit Martha's Vineyard at least once every summer and decided to spend a few hours relaxing on the water! We chartered The Sea Witch for a few hours over a long weekend and had a great sail! The day was sunny, breezy and perfect for sailing. Susan was a great guide as we sailed by many island landmarks, she knows... More

First timer to Marthas Vineyard and this was on the list of things to do before we had to go back! A must do, especially if your not local...what a great way to see the island. Since we were going all out we had Susans' lobster rolls, about the best and we tried a few while we were on island.... More

My family and I chartered the Sea Witch for a full day and had an amazing time! Capt. John and Sue were such gracious hosts! We only motored when we had to and had a full day of fantastic sailing, we even got to use the spinnaker, such a treat or those of us who like to sail and great... More

We sailed on Sea Witch this summer and found the charter to be less than pleasant. The smell of cat litter was pervasive as their cute kitty lives aboard. We have sailed and chartered on many boats many of them with animals on them and never experienced this. The captain and his wife live aboard and the boat is packed... More

From the other great reviews for this charter on tripadvisor I was really looking forward to my half-day charter with Sue and Capt John out at Martha's Vineyard. But after my experience I was left wishing that someone had written a more candid review before I decided to book. What I disliked the most about my experience was that I... More
