What a great way to spend the afternoon. The crew and captain are terrific. Well organized and efficient operation, friendly office staff. We helped hoist the sails and sailed out of the harbor. Good wi dis made for a fast sail. We of course, popped in the Tavern for a late Sunday brunch I have a new appreciation of all the Black Dog enterprises; I can count on good quality and friendly staff.

Wow. We can't say enough about this amazing day trip! The boat is a pure beauty, with a fun and wonderful history. The crew were all amazing, fun and super knowledgeable -- with only one exception of a new crew member who was a bit too emo and unfriendly. The captain was lovely and shared an amazing story of her long connection to the boat and the programs it offers. We set sail on the Alabama on a beautiful day and lucked out to be able to sail BESIDE their other beauty, the Shenandoah. Highly recommend this sail. You won't be disappointed.

We lucked and got the last pair of seats on the Sunset Sail. It was fantastic. The Captain was skilled and personable and the crew were great. The fellow passengers were also great. The whole trip had a great vibe. This is a definite priority when you visit Martha’s Vineyard.

We visited Edgartown for summer vacation with our 3 kids ages 9, 12, and 15. The Black Dog Tall ship was a fun excursion - great boat crew and the views were amazing.

Secured a reservation well in advance of 24 hours. Received confirmation TWO HOURS prior then as we were parking to go to the dock received another call saying we were bumped. When we made the reservation on-site it was staffed by young adults who looked slovenly. Saw the reservation get put on the book and there were no other individuals listed. Very unprofessional and I feel quite confident they bumped us to accommodate a larger party who booked AFTER us. There offer of a 20% discount on another cruise was to us unacceptable. Go at your own risk.
