I did this 3 hour charter cruise with my mom this summer and we both loved it! We did the wine tasting charter. Get wines, beautiful sail boat, great crew and the Santa Cruz coast line...what more could you want! The absolute best was the fantastic sunset with the moon rising...amazing!

Although I lived in Santa Cruz for 10 years and then moved away I always wanted to experience the Chardonnay with visiting friends and family. I was not disappointed as the crew was top notch, it was fun, a good time was had by all from the little guy who is 8 all the way up including the seniors on... More

What a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. We took the "Taste of Santa Cruz" sail and the food was wonderful. We'd expected snacks and were surprised by the excellent and plentiful food. Also, plenty of beverages - adult and otherwise. This is a wonderful experience for any age group. The crew is wonderful. Bring warm clothes as Santa Cruz... More

A great crew and a great boat make this a perfect way to see the wonderful wildlife in the Santa Cruz portion of Monterey Bay. We saw whales, otters and dolphin as well as the ever present sea lions and captured an awesome sunset on our beautiful sunset cruise. Everyone was very friendly and once a little music, wine, beer... More

I have done this tour twice, and it has been great each time! It is such a fun experience getting to sail along the beautiful Santa Cruz coastline, while sipping on some wine and hors d'oeuvres. On our last sale, we got more than we bargained for and ran into a pod of whales who came up to the boat...it... More

I went out with a work group on Chardonnay II. It was a delightful day and nice team building event. The views on the bay are beautiful.

We took the Sunday 11am trip and it was wonderful and relaxing. We were waited on hand and foot by a wonderful crew, Bobby and Cat. They first offered cold drinks, then sandwiches potato salad, dessert, more drinks. They mingled with the guests in case you had any questions, and were very helpful. Captain Steve was great too. We saw... More

We've been sailing on the Chardonnay II a number of times now: with a large group of friends, by ourselves as a couple, and with our son. Every time we've had a great experience! The crew is friendly and their service on the boat is excellent. They offer wine and beer on most of their trips and different food or... More
