We went on the noon cruise with our kids and it was a great experience. The kids enjoyed laying in the nets and we enjoyed the relaxing cruise around the bay. The crew was great and were very friendly. Would definitely go again.

Awesome cruise. The weather was perfect. The Captain and First Mate (Bartender) were friendly, knowledgeable and skilled sailors and we had a fun group of strangers to cruise with. It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend checking it out.

We want to thank Captain Chein and the crew for a wonderful night out on the bay! Not only did we feel closer as a couple, but it was awesome to get to know other people on the cruise.
