We took the evening sunset cruise which was lovely! The staff were GREAT! Fun, funny, knowledgeable, and efficient. I wished I had brought a lap blanket. The hors d'oeuvre were a little disappointing and they were basic snacks (salami/cheese, veggie, and fruit trays). Hors d'oeuvre...More

Fun, Fabulous afternoon adventure, even saw a whale. Thanks to the experienced captain and crew we were able to catch a breeze and sail across the ocean waves as if we were, ourselves, experienced and seasoned sailing crew. Very interactive yet safe, fun, and adventurous....More

Overall a great experience. The crew was capable and knowledgeable - the skipper Todd and the two sailors Tyler and Mara. They sailed us close to otters and seals. They were absolutely safe and kept us safe. Impressive that they were able to serve us...More

Always love going out on the Chardonnay. Crews are great, they give a great tour of the bay and always have delicious food. Probably our 10th trip with them this week.

Beautiful sunset, lovely crew, fun sailing moments just would love heading out into the open waters a bit so we don’t do so much back and forth!

Great trip with an amazing crew. Skipper was a joy. Generous with wine and food. A little crowded with 48 people plus crew on board. Would highly recommend

Great crew, lots of fun, great day on the water. If you are looking for a unique time in Santa Cruz try a cruise on The Chardonnay. Wonderful experience and a trying fun time and great weather on the day we went.

The crew was very friendly and helpful. They seem to be very knowledgeable and I think they enjoy what they do. We had our whole family there and all enjoyed it.

Wonderful day - fun to eat pizza-nice views of the shore. Friendly crew. Should have had the life jackets available to grab if necessary and not below deck in the cabin

Hi, husband and I went on the sunset cruise and paid $60 per person for 2 hours with all you can eat and drink. I think all of their cruises are about the same price but well worth it!
