We went to KW a couple of months ago to check on places to do our wedding. We ended up having the sunset trip at WU Schooner. We loved Lenn the captain and the ceremony he propose.
We made all the arrangements which Bobby made easy and very very friendly and then the big day arrived. (July 25, 2013)
The boat had an unexpected problem. The Coast Guard had scheduled a full revision of the boat which keeps it from sailing for three days and our wedding was the last of those non sailing days.
We pushed everything and everybody one day and had an extremely suspense about whether the boat would be able to sail.
Friday morning, only a few hours before the wedding, Lenn confirmed that we had a green light so we could relax and focus on our prep.
Everything went so way better than we expected. Specially having in mind we had great expectations. Everybody involved in the situation helped us a lot and the ceremony was incredible.
Due to the reschedule we had a few people that couldn't make it so Bobby send us a check refunding their ticket's money.
Thank you guys so much. You are part of our history now.
One of our best episodes of course.

Had a great sunset cruise on the Western Union Schooner. What a night.. Nice breeze that allowed us to sail with out engines for most of the trip. The crew was friendly, the beer, wine and champagne chilled and available. They even have a special treat of conch chowder. (very good)
But the best part aside from loving the quiet and serenity of sailing, is the fact that this Schooner s the Flag Ship of Florida, and a true part of history. You just have to do this in Key West.

Last week, I met up with a group of friends from high school. We graduated almost thirty years ago and have reconnected through social media. This was my first trip to Key West. One of the highlights of the week was the Sunset Sail on our last night. The weather was great and the scenery was INCREDIBLE! There is something so peaceful and serene about being on the water at sunset.

The crew of the Wester Union was fantastic! They shared all of the history about the boat, let us participate in raising the sails and steering the ship. They were friendly and attentive. We had plenty of room to move around the ship and a million photo opportunities.

Everyone in our group had a wonderful time. There are other sunset sailing/boat options, but this particular ship is the BEST, by far!! I will definitely sail with them again when I return to Key West!

This is a beautiful old sailing ship, passengers can help hoist the sails. This is a peaceful trip and a nice way to view the sunset. If you like history and old sailing ships, you'll enjoy this. It's romantic.
