I went with my mom on the sunset sail. It was amazing. The crew was fantastic and helpful, the views were incredible. It was definitely a great experience.

We sailed on the Schooner Freedom on July 4th weekend 2014. It was the undisputed highlight of our St. Augustine visit. The ship is outstanding, but it is the crew that makes the experience special. Captain John and crew were gracious host and did their best to make the trip memorable. As we departed the marina, my two teenage boys... More

My GF and I really enjoyed the sunset cruise and the general atmosphere of the cruise. It was relaxed and quiet and sailing beats the heck out of motoring around. The crew was engaging and friendly... You could tell they loved their jobs. A great experience.

My husband wanted to do this for his birthday. We did the sunset sail.......leaves the city dock @ 6:15PM....sails 'til 8:15PM.....you are with about 25 other folks but the boat is big enough so that you are comfy. The crew is friendly and they serve you beer, sodas or wine. My hubby had never been in the bay and seen... More

A beautiful boat with an even better crew. The value here is outstanding given it includes refreshments and the trip is for 2 hours. The crew on board were extremely friendly and knowledgable about the local area, even giving the best place to eat. Be sure to apply sun lotion!

My parents, husband, and I did a sunset sail and loved every moment of the evening. The crew was HILARIOUS and so easy to talk to. The scenery was beautiful and the sailing was so enjoyable. The drinks were an added bonus. We even shared pictures of pet puggles...random, I know. The entire evening was one of the highlights of... More

We took my husband on this beautiful ship for a Father's Day sunset sail. What a treat! The scenery was breathtaking. The ship was gorgeous, and the crew of Captain John, Jimmy and Jody was a treat. They were funny, friendly and obviously capable. We had a perfect sail. I highly recommend it!

This was a sail of a lifetime. The crew was nice, personable, and friendly, while still letting you just enjoy the sail. There were free drinks that are served on board. Captain John and crew gave us a great trip.

I rented the Schooner Freedom for the celebration of life memorial service for my uncle Michael Lawrence. The experience was perfect. From scheduling with Kim to sailing with blonde Captain John and crew, there are not enough words to express how helpful, kind, and genuine they were. They made an emotional experience peaceful and even enjoyable. There couldn't possibly be... More
