This 2-hour sail is a great experience. Captain Bill and crew were very hospitable, and the boat is beautiful. We had a perfect July night with a nice breeze, and a great wine tasting by Atwater Vineyards.

Awesome boat ride! Two hours was perfect: enough for a spin around the lower lake and a beverage or two of your choice. Captain and crew are friendly and welcoming, which makes everyone else on the cruise happy and chatty as well. Loved it!
