  • The sail was nice but that was about it. The owner never answered his phone for me so I left multiple messages. By the time he got back to me the next day the cruise I wanted was booked out. Then I asked for the sunset cruise the for the next day (Sunday), he said that it may or may not happen, just depends on how many people book it because he's not going to sail with just 4 people but don't worry, he has 16 voicemails to return, one of them must want to book that cruise. Well I called the day before, still not answer but he called back same day saying he didn't know if it would the cruise was going to happen so I asked him to put me on an earlier cruise just in case. On the morning of, I called again, left a message, he called back an hour later saying that he cancelled the Sunset cruise. Long story short, It's a bit ridiculous to just cancel a cruise the morning of because you don't have enough people. Don't keep folks waiting until the last minute-it's really not good business. We ended up taking the afternoon cruise and it was good but I was not pleased with the mannerism of the captain and crew. The crew member was nice, but didn't have a filter. I would definitely say this is an adult only cruise as it's not really a kid friendly atmosphere and expect to have to change your booking at the last minute. I probably would not go again. I gave them a 3/5 star because the boat was beautiful and the cruise itself was nice, but those were the only pros.
  • This is a great ship, great sailing experience. Nice that there was one male and one female crew member on board. They were very skilled and knowledgeable. Beautiful ship and a beautiful trip!
  • A close friend of mine has been sailing large boats ever since she was very young and has a lot of experience as she sailed all through high school competitively and currently sails in college. Her family has owned multiple larger sail boats and still sail all the time. She heard there was a position available to crew for the summer so she inquired about the position. She called the gentleman who was hiring and when she told him what she was inquiring about he laughed at her because he could hear she was a girl. A bit taken back by this she continued on to explain her experience and why she could be beneficial to the crew and he again laughed and asked her weight. She of course told him wanting the job and after hearing this he told her she probably wouldn't be able to handle it and that it required physical strength to sail a boat. To me this seems quite like he was discriminating based on her gender and very nonprofessional. I do not plan on any type of interaction with this company in the future and would not recommend them.
  • Great Captain and crew.
