    Easy Breezy on the Chesapeake
    Anna_M, July 2023
    We could not have picked a more perfect day to go sailing with Captain Andy and First Mate Stephanie. My friends and I had a wonderful and memorable Sunday on the Chesapeake. Andy and Stephanie felt like they were part of our group and we had the best time talking about the history of the area, as my friends and I grew up in the DC/MD area. The winds were light and the waves were calm. It was the most perfect way to relax and enjoy some good company.

    Best Bay Day
    Sharon_W, July 2022
    The crew was really friendly and knowledgeable! We learned all about the history of Chesapeake Beach! We got to see a few different animals like sting rays, fish, nettles, and osprey. We had a great day!

    Peaceful Bay Day

    Nate and Andy were awesome! Very peaceful and relaxing day on the bay. Even got to sail a little bit at the wheel.
    Sensational sailing on The Chesapeake.

    For a first time sailing adventure for the two of us it was very informative, safe and pleasurable. Priscilla was knowledgeable and willing to share interesting tidbits of Chesapeake Bay and the environment.
    This Tour Needs an Overhaul
    smwatson15, July 2019
    There was a mix up between viator and the company and they thought we were scheduled for nine instead of noon and were not ready for us when we arrived. They tried to accommodate us but it took them a while to get everything ready and our sail was only for about half the scheduled time. The crew was moderately friendly, but they did not go out of their way to make us feel welcome. The captain never even introduced himself to us, and we were not asked if we wanted to put our things below or shown where anything was. To be honest, the situation was a bit awkward as they did not make any efforts to even engage us in conversation. I've been on many sailing trips and always enjoyed the company as well as the voyage. This one was not the same, and I would not recommend this tour.
    Response from Host, July 2019
    Dear smwats… Thank you so very much for your review. We value your input and feedback. It was unfortunate that the crew’s conversations were not up to your expectations. Our crew is usually comprised of the captain and the first mate. Your crew was the captain, two first mates and an evaluator. Our policy on conversation with our passengers is to never dominate the conversation with our passengers, especially on private or small cruises. There were only the two of you and four crew members. It was not necessary for us to be overbearing. The first mate, the first mate in training, the captain and I all had conversations with you, even during our presentation of points of interest and facts about the Chesapeake Bay. As the crew returned back to the boat, from their layover, each crew member was introduced to you. I am sorry that you don’t recall that moment. We had you scheduled for our 9 am cruise but we called the cruise as a “no show” at 9:25 am and our crew was placed on a layover, since we did not have another cruise scheduled until 3 pm. The crew had gone their separate ways. All of our cruises, with the exception of our private cruises, require a minimum of four passengers. Since this was the first booking that we had received from Viator, we decided to sail your 9 am cruise with just the two of you. When you showed up at 12:05 pm we were shocked and concerned about the mix up. Passengers are always told to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled cast off. We did not want to turn you away because of the mixup, and as I stated earlier, you were our first booking from Viator. So even with the late start, we still took you out for a wonderful sailing experience on the Chesapeake Bay. We are sorry that the conversation was not up to your expectations, but you would have to admit that the sailing adventure was great! Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you back on the Bay in the near future.
