Took the family on this 2 hour sailing experience. We booked the 1pm sail 2 weeks in advance, and our tour was fully booked (16 on board) on the day of. To check in, head down to the water where the Bluenose II is moored. The charter leaves from the other side of the dock, directly across. Be sure to... More

Not much wind so we did more motor-boating than sailing but we had an amazing trip. Beautiful views and comfortable seating. The Amoeba sailing trip in Baddeck NS, has this beat hands down. Sorry I had to toss that in there.

We found Star Charters by default. Originally, we wanted to go for another Deep Sea Charter but we weren't sure whether 4 hours would be too long of a trip to be out at sea with our kids. Boy were we lucky to find Star Charters. Star Charters actually offers a Sail Tour but they also run a smaller boat... More

They were great with the kids and let them drive the boat. Nice way to see the bay. Didn't talk much about town of history, so don't expect that.

We went on a Star charter 2-hour sail as part of our room rate at the Sail Inn. The two-masted ship was comfortable, with ample room to sit and blankets to keep us warm. The captain was thoroughly knowledgable about the area and happy to share his thoughts. Once we were away from the inner harbor, we were invited to... More

What an amazing experience! My wife and I have never been on a sailboat so we didn't know what to expect. I hesitatingly volunteered to assist in hauling up sails, swabbing the deck :) or whatever might be needed but was actually also given the opportunity to steer the vessel for a short period of time! Fantastic experience and I... More

We took the late afternoon 2 hour sail and with a healthy wind, made it to the Ovens and back. We purchased our tickets earlier in the afternoon at the dock and were glad more than enough tickets sold for the boat to leave the dock. Captain Merrill and crew were delightful, knowledgeable, and fun. Having previously sailed on boats... More

My wife and I took a midday 2 hour sail with Star Charters and we couldn't have been happier. The captain and first mate were great hosts and even lets us steer the sail boat, which as it turns out is a refurbished Danish sail boat. It was great fun and the photos of Lunenberg from the bay were spectacular.... More
