Cheryl and Erik went on this cruise with friends August 22, 2023. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. They sailed the boat very well and it was a smooth ride. They pointed out point of interest. The wine steward explained each wine and stated where we could purchase them. There were plenty of snacks (cheese, meats, nuts, etc.) to be had. We had a fun night. We highly recommend this event.

Thanks to Brandon and Molly for an absolutely enjoyable sailing experience! This was a first sail for our boys ages 5-12, and we all had a great time. Molly brought out blankets for us, and Brandon answered our many questions, and even opened the hatches for our little guy who had a blast exploring down below. We lucked out with beautiful fall weather, and it was a highlight of our trip.

Had a great time enjoying a relaxing sailing on the harbor!!! I would recommend this sailing if you want to have a smaller crowd experience.

Loved the sailing trip. My husband and I had the boat to ourselves. Our captain and her stew were so nice and knowledgeable.

Nice trip that watching the ship parade from sea and helping hoist the main sail. Hope we have a downwind to sail further.

I am glad that I went on this sailing tour before I left Halifax. The crew was super nice - patient with our questions and always open to sharing more sailing knowledge/personal sailing stories. As someone who is usually not comfortable with water, I felt safe and really enjoyed the relaxing 1.5 hours with the view and awesome company. Highest recommendations!

Great small group experience! Crew were welcoming and informative! Great views, real sailing, got to help raise the sails and learned a bit about basic sailing techniques.

We had a wonderful time - great team, and fellow passengers were all great! Only drawback and reason for downtick on the "experience" rating was the weather - it basically rained the whole time so it did put a damper on the "experience." But it was the only day available to us on our first trip to Halifax. We absolutely would recommend them and would sail with them again if we got back to town.

We were on the sunset wine and cheese tour and I can not say enough great things about it! The crew (Cayliegh, Molly and Avery) were friendly and chatty answering any questions we had about the wine, sailing and adding in fun facts about Halifax. We made lots of great new friends on the tour and had the most beautiful sunset to enjoy. I would 1000% recommend.
