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

I have noticed people complain about the food given here and maybe that is not enough, but what I did notice on board in that they actually offer food, might not be enough to fill you up but you can ask for more and the same goes with the wine. Also people should read about the trip they are booking... More

My fiancé and I had a BLAST on the Chardonnay II. We went on the sunset sail. The weather was perfect and the sunset was gorgeous. The crew was super nice and helpful. As for alcohol, you had your choice of white wine, red wine, or beer. The crew went around several times to ask everyone if they wanted more... More
