This is a great program! The local guides and boat captains were very knowledgeable and friendly. They and the places we visited provided a rich and enjoyable learning experience in a very beautiful and memorable area.

Gary from Santa Cruz and Meredith Being a sailor and thoroughly into water activities, I found the water excursions not only refreshing but highly informative from commentaries provided by local experts. The added dimension of art history and galleries of the art colony at Rocky Neck was an added benefit.

Several enjoyable boat cruises. No restaurant at hotel, only catered meals. Not an educational progra, like to old Elderhostel ones. "Lectures" were just tour guide spiels with entertaining anecdotes, but no real learning and no handouts.

We've taken over 25 Elderhostel/Road Scholar trips, and this has been one of, if not the very best. The leader, instructors, content, atmosphere, etc. were top notch. Highly recommended. Ken Hallenbeck, Colorado Springs, CO

Lovely program for those who like being on the water. Hotel was wonderful. It is possible to get here with public transportation from Logan airport and only takes about an hour and a half. The only change I would suggest is allowing participants to take a sunset cruise, as all cruises were mid-day -- which is not ideal for photography. The Thomas Lannon -- a schooner -- does a daily sunset cruise out of Gloucester. Take it on your free afternoon!
