Loved the Dinner Sunset Sail.. I wish it were longer, the 2.5 hrs flew by! The food was good. The Captain and crew were very friendly. We would defiantly do this again.

Had a great time! Boat was in good shape, crew is polite and professional. Do not like the life preserver when snorkeling rule- the other boats don't have this rule.

The location for the start of the sail was great since it was in a private boat slip so getting on the boat was easy. Check in was smooth and we were supposed to find that everyone gets a free drink coupon for any drink on their menu. The crew was excellent, very knowledgable and made the trip fun. Here... More

Ride was fun. Be prepared to get a little wet if standing in front. Beautiful views of sunset and had bonus view of rainbows over Diamondhead. Crew was friendly and hospitable. Food mediocre. Drinks were strong but great! We had fun.

This was a great time with the family. Quick parking if you rent a car, and first come first serve seating was fine. Captain and crew were kind and friendly, and got to see a sea turtle swimming around us. Kids had a great time as well (teens and young). Beautiful scenery!
