We took the first trip of the day. Small group, lots of personal attention. This was the first clear morning in a few days. Light wind. With full sails up we still needed the motor, but this did not diminish the fun. Captain Joe and...More

Positive: Sunset sailing was relaxing and pleasant, although we came in prior to the sun actually setting. Negative: We specifically chose this cruise because the number of people onboard was small, and the food was listed on the website as "Chef's Selection Hors d'oeuvres". We...More

Beautiful schooner vessel with friendly and attentive staff. Small capacity caters to a more discerning crowd vs. some of the party boats available.

We had a blast. This wooden sailboat is a piece of art. The staff took us for sunset sailing and it was a windy day so all the sails were open. Friendly staff! Would do this activity everyday.

Gorgeous ship and great crew. Every phase was wonderful except the sangria tasted like gasoline. Fruit and cheese excellent and crew was courteous fun and helpful. The ship sails like a gem.
