We booked first class tickets on the 1.5 hour sunset cruise on Azure Seas departing from Stearns Wharf. The boat was operating at half capacity due to Covid. We loved the expansive views from the upper deck! Our captain managed to find us a pod of dolphins and sea lions, which was incredible. And the sunset was off the charts! The whole experience was perfectly timed. Special shout out to Jake who was so personable and offered to take photos for everyone. A worthwhile, great-value experience!

Smoothest boat I have ever been on. Just a nice ride with a beautiful sunset. We were lucky since the boat was about an 1/8 full. The crew was wonderful. Highly recommend!

I liked the cruise and the captain was great. Unfortunately, we did not hear even one word of the narration that was promised for this cruise :( When I asked the captain, he said, "where you were sitting (top deck in front of the captain) is the only place where you can't hear." Well that's not my responsibility. The owners should have placed a speaker there so we could hear :(

Such an incredible trip!! We booked the sunset cruise and were spoiled with a surprise visit from a ton of dolphins (25+ and right along the boat)! They couldn’t have planned it but it made everything so special. They boat trip itself was also amazing. The staff was awesome and the atmosphere was super relaxing. The only thing that wasn’t fantastic was the cocktails on board but that’s just personal taste

Victoria, thank you so much for the kind words! If we could plan the dolphins, we would every time - but thankfully we get lucky a lot! We really appreciate the compliments the staff and the atmosphere and appreciate the feedback about the drinks. We're so happy you had a great time and we hope to see you again soon.

Although my husband has been in the Navy, I wanted to take him out to the water for his birthday. He was pleasantly surprised. The Captain was knowledgeable of the area and was the perfect tour guidance. Cathy was wonderful and accommodating. Next time I would like to book a sunset trip. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
