We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise on this beautiful ship. Beer, wine and a cup of conch chowder were included in the price. The crew were friendly and knowledgable. Definately the best place to see the Key West sunset.

Love ship, friendly crew, dolphin sighting, followed by a sunset that only God can paint. Loved every minute of the cruise!

The price person was costly, but most everything in KW is so with that being said I would expect service with a smile. The cruse included soup, beer, and wine. The problem was the unfriendly staff, not personal to say the least, and if you wanted the food or beverage you had to serve yourself. It wasn't like it was over crowded or short of staff. The scenery was beautiful but the overall experience wasn't worth the cost.

Would definitely recommend this Sunset Cruise aboard the historical Western Union schooner. Beautiful night, drinks and conch chowder included. Great crew, and we also learned about the history of the schooner. Don't go on a "party barge" -- this is the classy way to do it!

My husband & I chose the Western Union for a sunset cruise because it is an authentic schooner but we got so much more out of our two hours. The crew were phenomenal. They were more than willing to answer any of our questions even though they were working. The scenery couldn't have been better, even though we didn't have much of a sunset. My husband even got to help the crew raise the sails, which for him was a big deal. This will definitely be on our to do list the next time we are in the keys!
