Four of us spent a wonderful 4 days in santa cruz, a 2 .5 hour drive from our home in sacramento, ca. Having enjoyed santa cruz on other occasions we decided to "do" the Chardonnay II sunset cruise. the last sunset cruise I ever did was on a ferry boat in san Francisco I was not sure what to expect....

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

As locals, we probably don't do this as much as we ought, as it's an enjoyable perspective of the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay. October is changeable weather, but whales show up at this time of year, and with luck you get a chance to see them up close as they are active in the late afternoon. Can be chilly. The other...

I just returned from a cruise around our beautiful Monterey Bay! I had always wanted to go out in this beautiful vessel! The excursion was top notch. Not only is this sail boat excuisite but the captain and staff were very knowledgeable and experienced. To be out on the open sea and experience nature first hand was out of this... More
