The Captain was cordial and courteous. The sail was not impressive and the weather was not cooperating either.

Excellent trip with very knowledgeable Captain. Enjoyable sail. Captain allowed you to help sail as much or as little as you wanted. Would take this sail again.

I LOVED IT. I really recomend it if you love the ocean, sea life, and Santa Cruz. It is a great location for family fun. I took my two children that are 10 & 12, I do not recommend for children younger then 8.

Captain Forest was both friendly and knowledgeable. The charter was to celebrate a friends birthday, and he was interested in learning to sail, so Captain Forest gave him the rudder and allowed him to steer us out of the harbor. During the sail, Forest shared...More
