The sightseeing was fabulous. The sailing...not so much. The crew was courteous and friendly, but the captain missed an opportunity to leave an impression! When the wind isn't blowing, you can't blame the captain for a lack luster trip. But on a PERFECT sailing evening...More

AS answered, the owners are two women who take turns sailing the ship. During the sail, you will be offered some light snack and soft drink. The captain, mates, and owner are all very cordial and professional.
