Our sailing adventure with Captain Forrest was a definite highlight of our N. California road trip. In addition to the priceless time at sea with wind in our sails, we soaked up the unforgettable experiences and intellectual interaction with the capable Captain. Worth every penny & more.

I LOVED IT. I really recomend it if you love the ocean, sea life, and Santa Cruz. It is a great location for family fun. I took my two children that are 10 & 12, I do not recommend for children younger then 8.

My husband and I enjoyed a 2-Hour Sunset Sail with Forrest in early October. His schooner was beautiful and we enjoyed every minute. My husband controlled the tiller most of the time and was thrilled with the experience. Forrest was very interesting and we kept a conversation going for the entire time we were sailing.

Captain Forest was both friendly and knowledgeable. The charter was to celebrate a friends birthday, and he was interested in learning to sail, so Captain Forest gave him the rudder and allowed him to steer us out of the harbor. During the sail, Forest shared tips and information about what it is to sail, and shared about the beautiful boat... More

Our Captain, Forest, took us on a lovely ride around the Santa Cruz bay in front of the Boardwalk over towards the farther lighthouse. His boat is a neat all-wood "Sharpie," and he and my husband talked about boats and sailing. Forest was friendly and experienced, a great guy to hang with for a couple of hours! Be aware that...
