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

It's certainly pleasant gently sailing out of Martha's Vineyard on a summer breeze. John and sue are nice people. Just know that part of the time for which you pay included ferrying you back and forth from the shore to ship and back again. With a large party, this takes a chunk of time out of your sail. If any... More

My wife and I charted the Sea Witch January 26, 2012 in St. Thomas (Virgin Islands). What a great experience. This wife and husband team run a great cruise. I layed up front on the sailboat catching some sun while my wife hung with Capt. John getting some sailing tips. Susan was very attentive with drinks and food. We were... More

We spent a late afternoon on the Sea Witch. Capt. John and his wife were tremendous hosts, by the end we felt like they were part of our party. Capt. John did an amazing job as captain and Sue kept our party well informed and educated as we had tons of questions. We anchored off to go swimming, hung out,... More

We spent a day chartering Sea Witch. Cap'n John was very competent. Sue was very friendly. Spending a day on the water can rarely be a bad thing and in this case, it was a wonderful time. Sue was offering snacks and drinks while John very capably managed to sail the boat virtually single-handed which is a fair accomplishment considering... More

Late this June, we chartered the Sea Witch for four hours and had a great time. Our party was two families, a party of ten with adults and teenage children all of whom were quite comforatble on board. We had a great sail with Captain John and his first mate Susan (not "Sue) for four hours off the island and... More

Capt John and crew were great! Really nice boat and outstanding service. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend them and it's even better if you get engaged while on board!

While vacationing with 4 friends on Martha's Vineyard, we all decided to charter the Sea Witch for an afternoon sail, and am I glad we did! On a beautiful summer afternoon in July, we brought our own beverages and snacks (although we couldv'e pre-ordered as well) and were met promptly on the dock at 1P by Capt John. Capt John... More
