“Great 1st time on historic schooner”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This sunset excursion was recommended to us by a couple who had taken the trip the evening before. So we took the sunset sail and had really nice evening sailing out from the harbor. Easy walk from Duval Street to just find the boat and have this short "sea sailing experience" The Captain and his crew were great, other passengers were fun, and being right under the sails as they went up was thrilling. the conch chowder was Nice touch.This is well worth the money. Great for persons of any age.

“Great trip, friendly crew.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Great time relaxing and watching the sunset. The open bar only had Budweiser, a red and white wine, and champagne, but we made due! Conch chowder was good.

The crew was very friendly, talkative and informative. We learned about the ship, Key West, constellations, as well as other ships in the area. It as a great trip!

“A Wonderful Time”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We picked the perfect evening based on the weather forecast and our hosts made it a trip to always remember. A great trip out to watch the sunset. A nice quiet ride, with all the refreshments, including great conch chowder, to enjoy along the way. One couple had been married seven years ago on this night, and were making their annual trip on their anniversary. So, for them, seven trips in seven years shows that it is a truly enjoyable experience.

“Great sunset, even better crew!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Simply great, captain has been running this boat for 17 years. He makes it a ton of fun, and unlimited drinks included. Great time, beautiful sunset on a boat from the 30th with real history.

“Front row seat to the spectacular sunset”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Great time, relaxing with an open bar (what's not to like about that) plus a cup of conch chowder and free key lime pie back on the island.
