Did the sunset sailing tour with Captain Allen. Great experience. Weather was perfect, and Captain Allen was fantastic. Obviously knew his way around the boat, but his stories, experiences and knowledge of history really added to the night. Great time, we'd recommend to anyone.

We spent two hours out on the water with Captain Charlie. It was wonderful, he was very knowledgeable about the things we could see including the navy seal/dolphin training base, air craft carriers, local bridges, Star of India and the maritime museum to name a few things we saw. There were drinks (non-alcoholic, beer and wine) and snacks available if... More

My husband and I took our niece on a 2-hour sail. She gave it the ultimate compliment: "I am normally bored with everything, and I wasn't bored once!" Captain Curtis did a great job of pointing out wildlife, navy vessels, etc. He was engaging, fun and knew what he was doing. I would highly recommend this sail.

If you envy the very rich who sail out on small, elegant yachts, this in your chance to pretend - for a few hours anyway. The smaller boats and limited passenger list makes this a real treat.

Customer Service was wonderful, and we had 2 wheelchairs and you were so accomodating. Everyone had smiles, and our skipper for the seal tour was awesome. We will be back next year.

We had a very nice sunset sail on a well-kept 1971 Columbia 36. Captain Curtis was engaging, informative and read our group very well. The only downside was the length of the trip which was 2 hours. Other tour companies have a 3 hour trip for the same price but we could not take those because the earlier departure conflicted... More

Booked a sunset sail 2-3 weeks ahead. There were 2 other couples aboard. Everyone was very friendly. Wine, beer and snack provided. Cruised the bay...saw porpoise training pens used by USN. A few aircraft carriers & some USN fastboats. Very smooth sail with light winds. Capt Mike was very informative & well worth it. Highly recommended.

We had an awesome time with great friends. The Lana Kai is a cool sailboat. The weather was perfect. Would recommend the 3 hour tour over the 2 hour. Creating the Champagne Tuesday Club was an added bonus. Great memories. Can't wait to do it again!!
