  • “I thoroughly enjoyed reliving my youth onboard Bessie Ellen. We came from Cornwall to Oban on this beautiful ship with Skipper Nikki and her brilliant crew. Great hands on sailing, relaxed atmosphere and fabulous food. A true get away.”

    – Kate Smith, Bessie Ellen Guest

  • “I’ve never sailed before, but if this is sailing, then I’m addicted. So, it seems, is everyone else: 85% of the Bessie Ellen’s guests return for further sailing adventures.”

    – Hazel Southam, writing for The Guardian

  • “Having never set foot on a working tall ship, I had no idea what to expect aside from what I had seen in films. The reality is so much better. I would recommend anyone who loves the sea to try this.”

    – Chris Baker, Muddy Stilettos Cornwall
