What a great adventure on the American Beauty Cruises. The First Mate was very engaged with all onboard telling wonderful stories of the island and you could truly tell he enjoyed telling of the history. We took away great memories that we will cherish. The cruise is great for families. Thank you American Beauty Team

This was such a nice experience! So unassuming and relaxing. Easy to find the boat at the dock, and the staff could not have been nicer. The First Mate was extra nice, voluntarily showing us on a map where we were going to sail, and pointing out some of the celebrity homes.

On my to-do list while in the Hamptons, I wanted to go on a boat ride around the island. But I didn't want to pay a crazy price for it. If you're looking for a reasonably priced ride in Sag Harbor, do yourself a favor and ride with American Beauty with Captain Don and Mate Frank. They are a friendly twosome. And Mate Frank was more than willing to take all the pictures you wanted. I can tell that they enjoy being out on the water and meeting new people! My only request is to upgrade the recorded tour that plays, it was a bit hard to hear. But other than that, we had a fabulous time. And the next time I'm in Sag Harbor, I will make sure to take this boat ride again!

The American Beauty was the ideal venue for my husband's 60th birthday. In lieu of gifts, I asked all his friends to bring their favorite food and/or drinks. They came through in style and we enjoyed all kinds of deliciousness. Captain Don cast off promptly and was incredibly accommodating about our route. We got to pick our music (which included my husband's musician chums being able to play) and clean up was a breeze! Easy, joyful and-- most importantly-- memorable fun was had by all.

We thoroughy enjoyed our 90 minute 1 pm Cruise on Friday, August 10th! It was a perfect day to be out on the water! Captain Don & First Mate Deitrick (hope I have spelling right) were awesome and very welcoming! Even though we live on Long Island, we knew very little about the history of Sag Harbor and Shelter Island! We had a great time and enjoyed the history lesson from Deitrick. He is quite entertaining!!! If you get out to the East End, don't miss this cruise.....you'll love it!

American Beauty is the perfect name for the wonderful afternoon we spent cruising the Sag Harbor area with Captain Don. The osprey nests on Shelter Island, was amazing to see. The whole ninety minute tour was a nature lover's delight. Informative and beautiful, thank you Captain Don, will be back again next year.

We did the sunset cruise and it was so enjoyable. David was amazing -- provided so much knowledge of Sag Harbor and is so kind. The sunset itself was beautiful! It was a wonderful way to see the islands and boats around the Harbor. We brought a bottle of wine onboard as well. During COVID, they separated each group to one side of the boat so everyone could remain distanced. Definitely a can't miss.

I took the 90 minute nature cruise with my mom and dad years ago and always wanted to have a private party charter. Captain Don has been doing this for a long time now - this is their 25th year. We had 20 people plus coolers and there was more than enough room. The boat holds 33 - per Captain Don's Coast Guard inspection. The 2 hours went by very fast as it was beautiful out on the water with our music playing in the background. I would recommend this for all kinds of parties.
