Went for a 2 hour sunset cruise. Beautiful weather, great wind, amazing views! Captain Gideon has amazing boat handling skills, and his 30 foot sailboat can easily accomodate up to 6 people. The sailing itself is fairly simple- 1 hour out and 1 hour back-...More

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!
