We went out on a 90 degree day, and what a pleasant escape. Captain Gideon is big on American history, so we also learned a lot about Revolutionary War history in the Lake Champlain area. A memorable excursion all around!

Gideon was a wonderful and knowledgeable captain on our four hour sail. He has lived in Burlington for a number of years and is very involved in the sailing scene. He was probably the calmest captain we have sailed with. He picked us up on the dock at 4:30 and delivered us back at 8:30 - just in time to... More

This was a really great way to get a different view of Burlington. Gideon is full of stories and the time just flew by.

We were a party of four and we enjoyed this activity to the fullest! After making the reservation and before we arrive, Captain Gideon was in contact with us often, updating the weather forecast and allowing us to change our sailing time to get the best possible experience. One of our party had a sailing background, two had some experience... More

We were given a sail with Gideon by friends who joined us for the afternoon. The weather was about as perfect as it could have been, the boat was immaculate and the captain was wonderful and, more important, very skilled. We have been sailing in many places but this was an especially delightful experience. It was very obvious that Gideon... More

We spent a fabulous couple of hours with Captain Gideon sailing on Lake Champlain. He let our boys try steering the boat which they really enjoyed, and was very knowledgeable about the lake, pointing things out along the way. Overall, was a very relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Recommended.

We did the sunset cruise. Captain is great and the boat is beautiful. We would definitely do it again. The experience rates our highest recommendation. Thank you Gideon! We will be back.

A very nice evening sail around Lake Champlain with Captain Gideon. Though the wind was not overly cooperative, we had a great time and Gideon is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the lake itself. Great fun for an evening cruise in the summer time! We would return!

We sailed from the marina in Burlington with Gideon. Lovely day on the water. Gideon is a great host. Interesting and very low key guy. 6 guests max on the boat. Very comfortable. Gideon is wealth of knowledge about the lake and the area. This is a must do! Great way to see the lake.
