“'Eastern Star'--A Major Highlight...be prepared for an Supreme Sail!”
Reviewed July 25, 2008

I've been on the Eastern Star many times and looking forward to the next sail. Sailing aboard the Eastern Star is a highlight to our trips to Lunenburg.
The Eastern Star is a sailing ketch which holds approx 30 people. The ketch is modern, clean and is much more striking than what you see in pictures.
Keith is an insightful, delightful captain, willing to answer any and all questions. He really places a strong effort in making each trip memorable and pleasant for everyone. That is why we go back, time and time again..
There are two specific sail times we part take in, one is the afternoon sail around Lunenburg Harbour, approx sail time 90 minutes in duration. The information provided is informative which enhances the sailing experience. There's no napping through Keith's info sessions, they are too interesting!
The second sail we part take in is the evening sail, approx 2 hrs in length. Again your travelling in and aroung Lunenburg Harbour but this tour is very much different. You get a very different feeling of Lunenburg at night. You see a multitude of lights, other sail boats, aqua life playing in the harbour, incredable sunsets. During our last trip we also watched fireworks that were being set off. We don't know whom set them off but they were gorgeous! While still informative, the mood to the sail has a relaxed tone, romantic feel, and you wish you could stay out all evening!
I can't say enough about "Sail Lunenburg Star Charters", words can't describe the experiences you can have. If your in Lunenburg, go to the Fisheries Museum Wharf and sign up for a trip.
Thanks Keith for make so many memorable moment, we'll see you soon.

“Fun sailing”
Reviewed October 23, 2006

We loved taking a two-hour sailing trip on the Eastern Star, a 48' sailboat from Lunenburg out to the Ovens Natural Park. The scenery was beautiful, the ship is lovely and the captain (a member of the family that owns the boat and a B & B) was really nice and personable, a good sailor and informative about the area.
