My daughters and I had a wonderful time experiencing the crisp October air as we sailed on the Thomas E. Lannon. The staff was helpful and informative. The Irish music featuring Michael O'Leary was the perfect addition to the trip.

Hubby and I had a lovely sail with you on a warm September day. It was so peaceful out there away from the city noises. Peace and calm. Yes!

Thanks for the review, getting to just listen to the noises of the sails and the sea without an engine really has to be experienced to understand. Hope you join us again sometime.

We loved the Captain and his seagull Polly Five Toes; also the rum punch at 10am. You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning! This was our second visit in several years and we will come back again.
