Our day started with a beautiful sunny day. We were greeted with John, smiling and very friendly. Brought over to this beautiful sail boat and another friendly face, Susan. We had this beautiful sailing day, boat was very comfortable, John and Susan made us feel very welcome. We went to a very private beach and enjoyed exploring the area. We... More

We just returned home from a two week stay on the vineyard. After 15 years vacationing there, we decided to try something new and chartered the Sea Witch for an 8 hour sail. Every second of it was amazing! Susan and I went over the day's itinerary and menu ahead of time and they definitely over-delivered on our whole experience.... More

My family has been out twice with John and Susan twice on the Sea Witch. We had such a great time in 2011 that we made sure to book a trip on our return trip to Martha’s Vineyard this year. Once again, the boat trip was the highlight of the vacation. John and Susan are warm and generous hosts. They... More

Had a great first trip on the Sea Witch in 2012. Booked them for my wife's 50th b-day in 2014. Selected and confirmed menu for a full day sail which included 10 family and friends. Deposit was charged to our Amex. Sea Witch cancelled less than 1 week before our sail. Poor form and a poor way to run a... More

What a fantastic experience!! We've been coming to the Vineyard for years and our only regret is that we haven't been on the Sea Witch before. We did a 4 hour charter, and were a party of 6 (4 adults, and 2 kids - ages 7 and 9). John picked us up on the dinghy and took us right out... More

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
