Captain Chris- I wanted to thank you for such an incredible experience. The entire process of booking, to meeting you, learning about the boat, and the picture perfect sunset followed with an incredible moon could not have been any better. Your balance of Boston History paired boating knowledge was a perfect blend. Chris and I both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I have already passed your information along to several of our friends.
You can be certain we will be back again.
Thank you again for helping make the evening so special and one we are both certain to remember.
Thank you again so much for a wonderful time sailing yesterday morning!! We had a great time and hope to do a longer sail out in the open water next time we are in Boston (weather permitting!!). Will always be a great memory and we enjoyed meeting you and your wife, you were both so kind!
Wanted to share a few photos we took from the boat along with our photo with you and your wife. If you ever find yourself in Texas please look us up!
Hi there. Just a quick note to say thanks again for a great sail. We had a wonderful time and are pricing out our own little beginner boat:) as promised, some photos you took. Be well! Maybe we will charter again. It was a great way to celebrate a birthday!!
Thank you again for the great night. It had been 12 years at least since I got out and I don't think some of the others ever had been so it was quite a treat and nice the weather worked this year. Will definitely see if we can organize another trip next year...Best, Bruce
Thanks for taking us out. We had a great time sailing and it got us both excited to start the restoration on our 1957 Lyman boat, so we can get back out on the water soon. You're a great guide and I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a new way to explore Boston.
Feel free to post any photos and I hope we see you sometime in the future.
Thanks so much again for our perfectly amazing time on the boat! We all had SUCH a blast just hanging out on our cruise; thanks so much for giving us such an unforgettable experience!!!! It couldn't have been more ideal. (i've also attached a photo from the boat perspective!)
Best of luck on your cruise today; looks like the weather's going to hold out!
I wanted to let you know that Monica and I really enjoyed sailing on Sunday. Thank you so much, you made the experience very memorable for the two of us. I appreciate you watching the weather and suggesting that Sunday would be a much better day for sailing.
I apologize for the delay in responding. Our wedding is THIS weekend, believe it or not, and so the planning and the busy-ness of it all have come upon us very suddenly. I have been meaning to write you since last week, to say again what a pleasure it was finally meeting you in person, and your wonderful wife as well.
We so thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and definitely plan to be back for anniversary sails every year :)
Hoping to be in touch soon! Warmest, Evita & Michael
Thank you for the picture. We had a great time and have told everyone we know about our trip on the Duchess. We would love to go again sometime and I am definitely keeping your contact information and have passed it on to a friend as well.
Thanks so much for the picture. We had an amazing time on our
charter. You really made the day wonderful and I can't thank you
enough. Even Mom, who was really reluctant to sail in the first place,
had a great time and commented on how smooth and enjoyable the trip
Pretty awesome. Granted, I did go sailing on a beautiful day so that made the experience phenomenal, but it would have been enjoyable on an ok day too.
Captain Chris does all the work sailing a small friendship sloop and lets you join in as much or as little as you'd like. The boat is beautiful and provides enough room for 6 guests to sit comfortably. The sail itself was wonderful and seemingly unplanned - it was nice to just go where the boat takes you.
Reasonably priced for what is offered - definitely worth it.
Just got back from the 4 hour sail that turned into a 6 hours sail around Boston Harbor for no extra charge. Captain Chris showed us around the inner and outer harbor, made a stop at Spectacle Island and gave us a little lesson in sailing. Could not have asked for more or a better time. It is limited, maximum of 6 people, but it is truly an enjoyable way to spend a day. Captain Chris does have some amenities, but we brought everything we needed for the lunch and afternoon sail. Highly recommend this if you're looking for a relaxing time and you will not be disappointed.
I cannot begin to tell you how much we all enjoyed sailing with you last night. You out did yourself in ordering the weather ... it was P E R F E C T! The scenery was wonderful and we loved feeling like we were the only souls on the harbor last night. You really made our 37th Anniversary very special. What more could one ask ... sky, sea, wonderful husband, children, family and new friend sharing a beautiful sunset and evening! We so appreciate all the time that you gave to us and your wonderful stories about your beautiful sloop and more. Thank you for being so kind and helpful with our son Ben and his new adventure in sailing. You were very kind to tell him he could contact you with any questions. Please also extend a warm thank you to your lovely wife, Cheryl. She is a great first mate! Thank you just doesn't seem to express just how wonderful the Duchess of Boston is and our perfect sunset sail.
With much appreciation, Cheryl Teacher-Librarian
P.S. We look forward to seeing our photo-opt on the Duchess.
Dear Captain Chris, Thanks again for such a delightful sail on Sat.
It set the tone for making our whole weekend relaxed and joyous for the
whole family. Please pass on a special thanks to your wife for
persisting in the purchase and wonderful refurbishing of the Duchess.
Without her skills and attention to detail, we never would have had our
marvelous experience on Sat. We all agree that a new family tradition
is born. Peace, Edy
" We were in Boston just for a few days this summer. It was fabulous but hot. What better way to enjoy Boston than a sail in the famous harbor? We called Captain Chris. Got a quick, positive response, and before we knew it, we were on a beautifully restored Friendship Sloop gliding over the water. He's a great captain, a great host and a fun guy to spend the afternoon with. We brought a picnic lunch of goodies from the North End....good wine, good food, good sailing. Perfect!"
It's Coco from Ball and
Buck. We wanted to thank you So much for allowing us to use your
Amazing boat as the setting for our photo shoot. The Boston Harbor was
the Perfect backdrop for all of them! They've come out amazing!

Thanks so much for the photo and the wonderful time that day when we pretended to be tourists in Boston. The photo is good and reflects the fabulous time aboard the Duchess. Hope all is well with you and your wife and that it is smooth sailing!
