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...More
Took a private sail with four others on my first sail ever. Crew was superb and very welcoming and easy to talk to. I learned some things and got to participate in controlling the boat. The boat was hand built by the captain which I...More
Our only other sailing experience is on the larger sailboat in Bar Harbor. Both are fun. This is a smaller boat. I think it is a 200 year old commercial fishing design. Totally different than motor boating. Hard to get a feel for what it...More

We appreciate that it's small, family-run and low key, but it...More

My family recently went out on the Endeavor on our Nantucket trip and had a wonderful time. Not only was the boat ride itself spectacular but Captain Jim and his daughter were so sweet. They were very accommodating and talkative, giving us great information about...More
We have sailed on the Endeavor many times but our last sail on July 14, 2018 may have been our best to date . Our family sailed with Captain Jim and his daughter, Lisa, to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We chartered the boat and took...More
We heard from a number of visitors that the Endeavor Sailing excursion was among the most fun activities on Nantucket. We were not disappointed; Captain Jim was super knowledgeable and provided some great commentary about Nantucket and sailing. One of the few reasonably priced excursions...More
