Such a great experience under difficult situation of sending my friends ashes to sea. Crew was very capable and accommodating to the guest. Beautiful historic sail boat. Our friend was put to sea with respect and kindness of the crew. Thank you for making my friends final sail so beautiful.

My employer chartered the Curlew as a reward for the team. The 3 hour cruise went very smoothly even though the waves were a little more than some of my coworkers expected. The crew quite capably handled the boat, instilling confidence in all of us. They were quite entertaining when they educated us on sailing practices and when they enlisted... More

A personal thank you to Mr. Dahm for sharing stories, Mr. Harrison for the steering lesson and Dr. Taub for making sure no one got seasick! The entire crew's passion for sailing was evident; it was a pleasure to experience their hospitality and warmth. We had beautiful blue skies and even saw several whales.
