“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We did the bed and breakfast sail for our 25th wedding anniversary on 8/13/13. The sailing was amazing and the crew is easygoing and friendly. We had almost as good a time talking with captain Brendan and the crew as we did sailing.

The entire ship is clean and well maintained and the food served was all amazing.

We plan on returning!

“Great sail. Wonderful crew!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We traveled from Auburn, IN to Traverse City for my husbands birthday. It was overcast and raining and there were storms around us. The captain decided it was ok to sail and boy did we ever. The wind was strong and the boat scooted across the bay. It was awesome! The crew and passengers were in very good spirits even though it was a cool rainy day. This was our first experience with sailing and we both just loved it.
Oh and the moomers ice cream was delicious!

Awesome, so much fun. Great crew!!!! Enjoyed the sail immensely! The wind was wonderful the night we sailed. The ship was healed over as it should be. The sunset was amazing. The crew played music and entertained everyone on board with nautical stories as well as local info.

“Nice trip and very helpful, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

We took a family trip,on the noon boat and really enjoyed it. The crew was super friendly to adults and children and it was a lovely view. The kids got to drive the boat,help with the sails and talk to the crew. My son has special needs and the crew was super kind and patient, giving him equal turn and answered his millions of questions with a smile. The had wine, beer and soft drinks for us to purchase. Highly recommend it as a nice afternoon in Traverse City.

“Sail was highlight of Traverse trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

A beautiful day capped off a two hour sail in the
Bay. While the sail itself was rather tame, the crew made the whole experience enjoyable. As the sail got underway, passengers were engaged to help hoist sails. The different types of sails were explained and watching them being raise was intriguing. After the sails were raised sodas, beer, and wine were available for purchase. One member of the crew brought out a fiddle and entertained the passengers with old time and
Irish tunes.
