This 2 hour sailing was worth every penny. Excellent service, great wine, food, & music with experienced & friendly staff. Since it was a hot day, we took the midday (1:30-3:30) charter to be out in the pacific ocean and cool off with the aid of cooling breeze and cold white wine. Make sure to use plenty of sunscreen even... More

Do it! We took the Thursday evening one hour cruise and although I could have stayed out longer, it was lovely. Beautiful evening, nice breeze, great captain and crew, snacks & wine. There was a storm brewing down by Monterey and we were prepared for some real excitement but it moved off to the east so it was smooth sailing.

We took the Chardonnay II Sunset Cruise, and it was glorious! Good snacks, good wine, a wonderful crew, calm seas, fantastic views, sea lions, sea otters, even a whale sighting!

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
