“Fantastic and fun Cruise. Definitly worth the price.”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

Captain John and the first mate were friendly, inviting and created a fun enviroment. They were extremely knowledgable about the lobster industry and the local points of interst. The sailboat is the perfect size, we had twelve passengers with plenty of room to move around the boat. Anyone who wanted could steer the boat and Captain John gave execellent on the spot sailing lessons. Soda and water was provided, however we brought a bottle of wine (being the last sail of the day). The 2hrs flew by, it was like being out with a group of friends. Call early for a reservation, the 11AM and 2 PM sails fill up quickly.

“I'd give it 5 stars if I hadn't got seasick.”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

I always had a problem with motion sickness, but I wanted so badly to take the 2 hour sail on the ketch. Well, I took my Dramamine and used my sea bands and still got sea sick. That being said, the sail was beautiful. It was a sunny day with a cool breeze. Christo and Shane were very knowledgeable about the sights and fielded all questions about the ketch and river. It was very relaxing and peaceful. It's location behind the Nonantum Resort is convenient and has easy parking.

“Perfect Sail”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

Everything about the Pineapple Ketch is first rate. The boat has wonderful character. The captain and first mate couldn't be nicer. They even let the kid's steer the boat; the highlight of their trip. Highly recommend!

“Great crew, fun sailing”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

Loved the Pineapple Ketch and John and Holly. She is docked behind the Nonantum Resort with plenty of free parking. Our day was foggy but on a nice day, it would be a great, fun adventure. John is so knowledgeable about the water on which he sails and the lobster industry. Try it...good value.
