Great way to beat the heat! Crew was friendly and encouraged guests to assist and steer. We only had 8 guests on the vessel. Very reasonably priced. You receive a soft drink and a snack included!

We enjoyed our ride on this sailboat. The bay was beautiful. My son was able to steer the boat for a time. Worth our time and reasonable fee.

You must be able to take a step up or down once on board. There are lots of crew members to help you!

Guests have the opportunity to help raise the sails, steer the schooner, and ask questions. You also can just sit back and relax! Captain may have suggestions of where best to take a lesson locally. Weight is not an issue... More
