Last night we went aboard the vessel to watch the Monte Foundation Fireworks. The crew was excellent but the captain and route and viewing of the fireworks was awful. We arrived in front of the fireworks just in time for the finale and struggled to see over the top of the bow bouncing and peoples heads to view them. The... More

We originally booked the champagne brunch cruise but were moved to the pizza and beer cruise later in the day due to an issue on their end - not a problem for us at all and probably turned out to be a more lively cruise, considering their were two bachelor parties on board! I was with my sister, both of... More

Went on the Wednesday Night Race event and it did not disappoint!!! Captain Steve and his crew were top-notch and professional. It was a little crazy out there which only added to the excitement...love, love, loved this excursion!!!

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.

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
