We had some guests stay at our house in early May and went with them on this sailing vessel, it was a wonderful trip and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was not too expensive but could have been less since we are local.

Have done this sunset cruise three times now and will do it again next time we come. It is a very relaxing cruise and the sunsets are amazing. The captain always lets somebody else have a hand at steering the sailboat for awhile and my husband got to be "skipper" this trip. This is a nice way to relax and... More

We took the sunset cruise with Captain Lance and loved it. He is an excellent sailor and entertaining story-teller. Great fun for couples or families!

Took the sunset cruise on board the sailing ship “Pirate’s Choice”. The small size (max of 8 people) allows a lot of conversation with everyone on board, which you don’t get on the larger tour boats. Captain Lance cut the motor once we cleared the canal and did a great job of sailing the vessel out and back with just... More

Captain Lance was awesome! We spent an amazing afternoon sailing and talking like old friends. Can't wait to come back to Key Largo and bring some friends to share the experience! Wish we could have done sunset but it made having to leave today less painful! Back to NJ and the chillier weather. Thanks again, Bud and Deb

Captain Dave made this trip so enjoyable. We couldn't stop smiling and laughing A must do for anyone staying in Key Largo or passing through. The sunset was amazing and you can help hoist the sails and enjoy the whole sailing experience.

Captain Dave and first mate Rob were very professional and informative. They answered any questions and even let my friend sail the boat. They let us snorkel over the reef which was really an extra treat. Loved the fact that this wasn't an overcrowded boat. All in all, it was a wonderful trip

Captain Lance and First Mate Jose were so laid back, accommodating and informative. They took us out for a sunset sail and gave us a little history and answered any and all questions. There were 10 in our crowd and the boat had more than enough room. We had snack and drinks with us and were encouraged to just spread... More

Had a great time sailing on Pirates Choise. Captain Dave was really nice. It's a great way to see a sunset but it's not some over crowded steel boat. This this has character. Every time we passed another boat everyone would yell ARG!!! We would yell it right back. It was really fun.

Sound vessel, wonderful captain, safety first but still lots of fun. Novice sailor got lots of time at the helm, experienced sailor enjoyed the trip as well. Boat is berthed on the same pier as the original African Queen from the Bogart/Hepburn movie.
