Captain John and his crew never disappoints. Great food and wine! A great way to see Santa Cruz with NO TRAFFIC! Great for locals and tourists.

Living in Santa Cruz county we know we can always count on a great sail when we go on Chardonnay. We have been on the Chardonnay at least 10 times in the last 8 years and plant to make a 3rd trip this year.

To celebrate my mother-in-law’s 90th birthday,11 family members took her for a two-hour sail on the Chardonnay. Parking near the slip was convenient and reasonable, and getting aboard was not a problem- even for my mother-in-law. The Captain and his two-person crew were professional, competent,...More

Hi, husband and I went on the sunset cruise and paid $60 per person for 2 hours with all you can eat and drink. I think all of their cruises are about the same price but well worth it!
