Captain Paul is the best! He even called us and offered to reschedule due to poor weather conditions, and we did that and had an awesome sail. Our entire family, ages 67 to 3, enjoyed the sail. We have recommended this event to others.

Captain Paul and Al were very professional! Very very safety conscious! Gave us soft cushions to sit on, too! The only thing missing for the price would have been light hors d'oeuvres (Fruit and Cheese Plate and drinks) There was only Nuts and Water. We...More

Go on their website for a total schedule and prices. We did the Sunset Cruise which was 3 hours and the four of us had the whole boat to ourselves for a set price.
