Captain Allen is an amazing captain great with kids and adults alike. Loved sailing with him and his stories were incredible. He taught me much about sailing the ship I feel I can almost sail myself with a small crew. Also fell in love with his 1967 sailboat I need one in my life! I could do this every day and I just might do that. He made our send off of out Father one of the best days we could have ever asked for. It really was the perfect day! Hope to see u soon onour next adventure. First m8 Phil out! 🤙☮️♥️
Sailing with Captain Al was a wonderful experience. The entire Marblehead area was so beautiful to see from the water and Captain Al was a very informative guide. The sailboat, Emma Rose, was so picturesque, it really felt like we were in a movie. This is certainly an experience we will remember for a lifetime.
Daniel and his crew were absolutely incredible. I went on a cruise around Boston Harbor on my wedding day-- it was a blast!!! They were accommodating, kind, helpful, and professional. Daniel even added some white decorations on the end of the boat. He was thoughtful in terms of where we went, photos, and timing. He was a great communicator. I absolutely loved my time on the boat and Daniel was fantastic!! So grateful for this experience and definitely want to go on a cruise with Daniel again!! THANK YOU!!!!
We were a party of 5 and fit very comfortably. Captain David is professional, knowledgeable and have great communication. We had such a fun day cruising in the harbor then floated by one of the island. Had lunch, jumped in the water. Such a fun day! Highly recommend!
We rented Johns boat for my friends bachelorette. It was amazing! We connected our music and he had a cooler with ice for all the beverages. He was so accommodating and communicative. There was a bathroom and seats for everyone. We were able to sit in the sun on the front of the boat and jump off to cool down. The boat was clean and large enough (with room to spare) for the eight of us. Would definitely 100% recommend!
Tracy the owner was excellent answering all my questions. My husband and his 8 friends had a great time starting their guys night out on the boat for his birthday. Mike the captain was great. I highly recommend for a unique and fun experience.
