Four girlfriends and I took this charter during our recent annual MV vacation. I was a little concerned being in a close space because of COVID, but the the captain, Sequoia and his first mate (can’t remember her name) took precautions— masks and hand sanitizers so we felt comfortable. We brought all our own food, drinks and utensils for an added layer of comfort. It was a beautiful day and Captain Sequoia shared with us points of interest as we sailed. We were really just looking for a relaxing day on the water so we weren’t very interested but he was knowledgeable should that be something a group is interested in.

The trip was three hours but it felt shorter and I could have used a few more hours on the water. Boat was a little bit on the old/not modern side but clean and spacious enough for our group and the boat staff.

Would recommend for kids and adults looking for a few hours of fun on the ocean.

What a great way to enjoy MV. We spent the night on board and had a peaceful evening after dinner ashore. Next morning we went for a three hour sail, and despite no wind, it was still amazing. If you want to participate in the sailing then this is the trip for you. If you don't want to participate --- this is still the boat for you! All at your own pace with a great Capt and Alayna (the hostess). This was the highlight of our trip to MV. We'll be finding this boat and crew in the VI for another charter this winter. Highly recommended.
