took the sunset sail, and it was awesome, the crew was great with everyone and they had some people help with putting up the sails. the sunsets are breathtaking in Key West anyways, so it was a great experience, I highly recommend it.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This sunset cruise is awesome! A stunning view of sunset in the Gulf of Mexico, plus the chance to raise the sail and even drive the ship for a little while. It is totally worth it.

“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We really enjoyed the sunset sail! It was just perfect. We were lucky enough that we were still sailing to see the full moon appear too. The crew is fantastic too. This was a great experience.

Had a great sunset cruise last night. Have taken cruises on other ships and this was one of the best.

“Sunset cruise with family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

An incredible adventure for the whole family. My three children aged seven, five and three had the time of their lives steering the schooner with the Captain. A wonderful family event and many thanks to the Captain and crew!
