This was such a great little trip away from the crowds and out on the beautiful and relaxing water. Jim and James are so sweet and genuinely love what they do and make you feel so comfortable and relaxed. We brought some sandwiches and sat back and let them do all the work (they offer anyone the chance to help with the sails if you'd like to) and felt at peace the whole trip. Great little facts and tips about the island and a nice little tour out and back for about and hour. We went mid day but will go back for the sunset tour next time. Good price compared to others and the boat was beautifully crafted, clean and just the right size for about 10-12 people.

Capt Jimmy and his son were wonderful hosts. Fun short way to get on the water. Easy on and off and Capt Jimmy knows things about the island! Well worth it if you want a quick ride

Captain Jimmy is a wonderful, jolly, and salty sailor! Couldn’t have asked for a better Captain. BUT Ben was the star of the show! One look at Ben and you just know, you are safe in his hands. His eyes are like the ocean, one glimpse of them and you don’t even need to go to sea. As Ben effortlessly hauled up the sails I was transported back to a simpler time, when whales ate ships and men ate whales. And boy those two salty dogs sailed the heck out of the boat, we even dipped the rail in the water. But we felt safer than a kangaroo in mama’s pouch, no “toe boats” necessary. Captain Jimmy had a keen eye for the local flora and fauna and boy did it pay off to listen to him. We saw some seals sunbathing on the rocks, got a splash of sea salt on our cheeks and felt the rush of sea breeze in our hair. We drank wine, talked of happy times and of course we laughed and laughed and laughed. There are tall ships and small ships and ships that sail the sea, but the BEST ships are friendship sloops! May they ever be! A Nantucket must!

Had a great time on the Endeavor sunset cruise. The captain and staff were helpful. The ability to bring your own wine/ snacks was a real plus. The highlight of our visit to Nantucket
