    Captain and crew were knowledgeable and fun. Loved seeing the mirrored building with the reflection of the ship. Got to host the sail which was fun as well.
    Great Trip on a Tall Ship

    Such a good time! The captain knew his stuff, sharing sailing tips and bits and pieces about the area and answering questions. The crew was friendly as heck. The atmosphere was casual, so most of us passengers spent the time talking and laughing with them like we were at a friends party. The bay was beautiful and the sailing was smooth. Highly recommend!!

    , Sep 2021
    This is a great tour - guests are invited to participate by hoisting sails and steering the ship, and can move about and view the ship's quarters. The crew was funny and knowledgeable! We've taken several harbor tours, and this one was excellent.
    Excellent time sailing!

    We had a great time! Kevin, Jack, and Robin were great! Very laid back and relaxing. A beautiful day and the wind was perfect. Highly recommend it! And Kevin, my friend and her husband's boat who are traveling around the world is a Gibsea 36 ft French Sloop.. Greek to me but I am sure you know. Thanks for the relaxing time!!
    Worth it!
