My (now) husband and I went on a lovely sunset cruise on this boat and loved it so much, we got married there a year later! Lovely owner, crew, and musicians! Not much to complain about! :)

I had a wonderful, relaxing time aboard the American Rover, I was hoping to do the 2hr. Sunset cruise with live music, but it was booked so decided to take the 1.5hr harbor cruise, It was with-in walking distance of the Sheraton, which was real nice to say the least! We sailed all the way down, then was powered by the motor back,

I would recommend taking a trip on Mondays to avoid the crowds. The sailing vessel is unexpectantly large. There is a ships store to provide drinks and snacks.
If you are having an anniversary or just celebrating a special occasion I would recommend this schooner. It is a unique experience as you watch the crew lift the sails and ride down the oceanfront.

We went on this tour in Oct of 2011. It was not hot and it wasn't cold either but I would recommend a light jacket in case of chill. The history lesson was great. So much to see and lean you cant do it in one trip....really need a couple. You can stay above and listen to a history lesson or go below and sit and order from the bar. I would highly recommend this enjoyable tour.
