Went on this the other day, to be 100 percent honest I would not go again. You cram onto the wooden ship and once you sit down you’re not allowed to move. They squeeze you in so you are on top of each other. Rather...More

I’m glad I didn’t read the reviews before our cruise. We had the perfect weather for the sail. The Captain was informative about the history of The Red Witch and the crew was helpful. The cruise left on time. The only glitch was we were...More

Our family drove across state to take a sunset cruise in Lake Michigan on the Red Witch (from Kenosha Wisconsin). It was suppose to be a fun family outing. Instead the captain disrespected me in front of my family. At the end of the sail...More

We were under motor most of the time even though there seemed to be a decent breeze. You are packed in on the boat like sardines. You sit and don’t move the entire time. Some if the seats are very uncomfortable. The crew was very...More
