Another great sail yesterday! Always so much fun and we usually meet a new friend or two. We saw a whale, otters, seals, pelicans, rolling waves, a perfect sunset, some tacking, lots of waving to other boats, and we got close to the surfers at Steamer's Lane. I left the boat feeling like we had done a little of everything.... More

I've taken the sunset cruise 3 times this year, and it's always been a great experienced. Always feels like a total reset. The crew is really great and seem to be extremely competent. This last time I took my parents (in their 70's) who were visiting from Michigan and they were very pleased. Always a great crowd on board.

My husband and I have sailed on the Chardonnay several times, but not in many years and not with our sons before. The weather was perfect, the crew was fabulous and we had a whale with us for much of the trip. Perfect afternoon!

We had a great time on the Chardonnay. It was a charter with a master brewer on board. They also served great pizza. Super friendly crew and great captain.

Our 3rd trip on the Chardonney ][. Unfortunately the winds were weak on our voyage and the captain never got the chance to put up any of the secondary sails. On our last voyage we got a chance to really get sideways and have a bit of fun at the Friday night races (informal), so we were criss crossing with... More

The crew of the boat were very friendly and always at our service for food and drink. Of course, the weather makes for a better sail and we had perfect weather. It was exciting to be near other boats racing in the Wednesday evening races. The departure time and return were prompt. I could see how it could get very... More

I have taken four sunset sails on the Chardonnay over the past five years or so and all have been nothing but amazing. The crew is great and make you feel safe and happy. Plus you can't beat the views!
