This was a nicely done trip, with a competent and friendly crew who didn't make you feel like an imposition. The food platter was really enjoyable, with fresh fruit and veggies, as well as shrimp and other seafood delights. Their sangria was excellent, and they even gave us to-go cups! Great views, great fun, go do it!

When we got on the boat we noticed that there were not many other guests on the boat. Maybe 30 or so. We all got some drinks and some cheese and crackers and then we went sailing. During the trip we saw other boats packed with people and with loud live music. We knew immediately that we had made the... More

I'd highly recommend this cruise. We took the sunset cruise on this authentic tall ship. The crew is excellent, Captain Chris and his crew, Jan and Richard are very friendly and competent. They really sail this vessel, it's very peaceful. They supply drinks and platters of cheese, crackers and fruit. I am looking forward to my return to Key West... More

We looked at all the options and finally chose this beautiful two-masted schooner for our sailing trip. What a good choice and what an incredible day out we had on the water. Sailing out at sea withCaptain Chris and his crew was a real piece of life on the waves; only wish we could have just sailed away and off... More

Katie was our captain and her hands were Todd and Travis (I think?). It was awesome. The food and drink was great. Watching and listening to Katie shout out commands and the shipmates following without question was liberating to witness. Although the sunset was cloud-covered for the most part, we had a blast sailing. It really was a great trip.

The key to the day was the crew, Each went above and beyond in everything they did. They were cheerful throughout. Activities were excellent. I would recommend to anyone who asked.

Had a great sunset sail on this spectacular wooden vessel. Not many of these around. The crew were fun but professional, kept the beer and champagne flowing and took the time to hang and chat. Highly recommended!
