We just arrived back at our resort and are still talking about the trip today. We happened upon a pod of dolphins that ran into the hundreds with sitings of a hump backed whale that kept surging out of the ocean amongst the Dolphins and birds. It was an incredible rare day of white stripe, common and bottle nosed dolphin... More

This is coming from one who doesn't spend measurable time either reading or (especially) writing reviews/experiences on the inter web, as I am truly "old school". I will say the crew was great, the boat was/is magnificent, and the run was most enjoyable. Our arrival was met with virtually zero signage or visual cues (i.e. no help or clue we... More

My wife and I looked forward to the sunset cruise on America's Cup. We were not disappointed. Capt. Troy Sears and crew were top notch in every way. How did she sail? Like a dream! She glided through the water and waves effortlessly. It was both a thrill and an honor to go back in time and see what it... More

Unfortunately, Me and my grandson were not able to make it due to a severe reaction from a injection I had in my knees the day before. I gave a five star rating because they would have refunded my money up to 48 hours prior, which is more than I can say for other companies. Looking forward to one day... More

I talked to folks who took the afternoon "sail" in Mobile last weekend. There was not a lot to see. However, we took the sail out of Pensacola on 11/12, and it was just great. Perfect weather that day. We motored out to just off the lighthouse and the Navy Base and watched the Blue Angels air show. There were... More

Very unique experience with knowledgable, helpful crew. Sailed in Pensacola Bay ,watched the Blue Angels directly overhead, saw dolphins up close....doesn't get any better than that. Beautiful ship replica with modern marine bathrooms!

Even though I am not into sailing when I heard The America was coming to Mobile, AL, I thought I have to ride on this boat. Living in Mobile around the water all my life I have always had a love of boating. We boarded at Gulf Quest in downtown Mobile and sailed ( motored ) about 5 miles out... More
