This experience seems to totally depend on the wind and weather. You could get an exciting sail or just drift around the harbor. Great deal on group on, but scheduled sail was cancelled and we left for it before they called. Not good. I guess...More

The crew was good but the sail was disappointing. We did not get a seat so we stood for the 2 hours! Boat needed repairs. The captain did not move out the harbor. We circled around and saw the same things over and over again....More

I thought this would be a historic tour of Boston. There was no information given the entire tour. There was also not much seating. I wouldn't recommend buying this.

Wind and tide dependent. We left at about 11 pm and anchored off shore. Early in the morning we were underway to the Eluthera chain. The meet and greet at 6ish the evening you board is when the captain tells you his plan.
