Great crew and 82 foot ship for a fun excursion. We didn't see dolphins but would do this again. Snacks and drinks provided and we were able to help hoist the sails!

During Festival of Sails in San Diego Harbor, we we're blessed to have picked the Curlew for our Twilight Sail. What an amazing experience! The owner and staff we're great. We sincerely enjoyed our cruise.
