We did the sunset cruise, and we weren't disappointed. The crew was terrific and explained a lot about the history and working of the ship. Belfast bay is beautiful!

This was a great way to spend a few hours while in Belfast. The captain and crew were very nice and even allowed guests to get involved in setting sail from the beginning.

Capt. Lance, the crew, the lovely schooner, the ocean, the scenery, etc. created a wonderful experience for us. The skipper and crew clearly love what they do, and that makes for a fine adventure. Ask all of them about their backgrounds and you'll be entertained...More

This schooner beautifully constructed with a great history, and the crew was fantastic--saw them later @ 3 Tides! Two hours felt short. Next time we'll go for a half-day.
