What a relaxing & beautiful way to spend time on Lake Champlain, sailing with captain Gideon. He was accommodating, very willing to take us where we wanted to go on the lake.This was a first experience for our family of 4 adults sailing on a boat this size but it will not be our last. We look forward to next... More

Having never sailed before, we wondered what we were in for! It was a really great experience, under the able and relaxed captain, Gideon. He was full of interesting information and more than happy for you to get involved in sailing the yacht. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the tiller. Sunset over the Adironacks superb! Very reasonable. Peter and... More

We just had an extremely pleasant and romantic sailboat cruise with captain Gideon. He was all over the boat setting sail but still made the time for conversation. He knew a lot about the area and was able to answer all our questions. He also shows a real interest in his customers which is very sweet. It was a great... More

We made a spontaneous trip to Burlington, and after reading other Trip Advisor reviews, decided to forego the large, crowded cruise and book with Gideon. I called and was able to book a sunset cruise for the following day. I'm typically uneasy with boats other than something the size of a ferry, and told Gideon my concerns. Rather than making... More

We enjoyed a moonlight cruise. If you want to get out on the water without the hassle or the crowds call Gideon. As the owner & captain he treats every guest as visiting family. I highly recommend the moonlight sails.

We (I, my wife and two children aged 18 and 13 years old) decided to go out on Gideon's lovely sail boat July 30 2013. When I booked that morning he cautioned that there would likely be little or no wind to sail with according to the weather forecast but we were welcome to try. I appreciated his frankness and...

Gidon is a skilled and friendly captain, interested and interesting. I went on a four hour trip with my father and my three kids. My father and I are experienced sailors and we loved to sail with Gidon. The wind picked up and we set the first reef, later the second, and that was done in a relaxed way with... More

My wife and I set sail with Captain Gideon on Lake Champlain for a two hour cruise. The captain is an exceptional tour guide who made sure that all aboard had a memorable experience. He was very accommodating, gave great attention to details, and made everyone feel like they were captain of the ship. Thank you Captain Gideon for making... More

My husband and 3 kids (ages 11, 13, 15) and I had a wonderful 2-hour sail with Gideon on Lake Champlain. None of us have ever sailed before. Gideon was very friendly and willing to explain how to sail. The kids loved steering the boat, dangling their feet in the water off the back of the boat, and letting out... More

Captain Gideon run an really enjoyable sailing company. He is an experienced sailor and also very gracious person to spend an afternoon with. He has that great blend of knowing what he's doing and being relaxed so that everyone has good time. I would highly recommend Let's Go Sailing to individuals and families alike.
