“Great family time! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We spent two wonderful hours sailing with this company today - what a great way to see Lunenburg and its harbour! The captain and skipper were fabulous with kids, involving them in many of the activities such as steering and working the masts. We would definitely do this tour again.

“Stunning Sunset cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We have got to over 55 and never been on a sail boat before and this was the very best. It's obviously weather dependent to a certain extent and we were very lucky. However the crew were friendly and knowledgable with just enough but not too much H and S information. It was thrilling to take the helm even for a short time. This trip was included in our B and B at the Sail Inn and we probably wouldn't have gone without this. We would have missed a holiday highlight! Thanks guys.

“A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We tried to go sailing in the Halifax Harbor, but there was no wind when we went, so it left something to be desired. When we arrived in Lunenburg, we lucked out and there was a 2 hour sailing tour on the Eastern Star leaving so we jumped at the chance! It was windy and amazing! The crew were fantastic and gave us a ton of information about the history and the area, and everything about it was just perfect! If you like boats, this is a great tour!

“Beautiful ship and cheerful crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We were lucky, on a sunny and relatively calm day, to get just enough wind for some quiet sailing. The crew was exceptionally cheerful and relaxed. The kids and adults loved being able to help out with the wheel and the sails. The Eastern Star was looking good, it just felt great to be aboard, in no rush to get anywhere, on the water.

In summary, a great experience even in a light wind.

“The best way to see Lunenburg!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Being out in the water on a sailboat is always fantastic, but the crew onboard the Eastern Star made this trip memorable. The crew was very knowledgeable about the area and shared a lot of historical information. We went out to the sea caves and then headed back to Lunenburg harbour and sailed past the Bluenose II. We had a chance to help raise the sails and took turns steering the ship. The view onto the town of Lunenburg was picturesque! We were very lucky to have the boat to ourselves. There is a four person min. for the trip, however we paid for the extra two. Each ticket only costs $35, so for the extra $70, to have this beautiful sail boat to ourselves was worth every penny! If we are ever back in Lunenburg, we would definitely take this trip again.

On a side note, the captain of the boat mentioned that there is a B&B attached to this company. Apparently if you stay at the B&B you get a free sailing trip. We didn't stay there, but it might be something worth looking into.
