Very enjoyable two hour cruise out into the Pacific ocean - we had a great crew and captain/owner who served tasty treats and champagne to the guests. We got to see dolphins and a lovely sunset. Highly recommend!

Great crew and 82 foot ship for a fun excursion. We didn't see dolphins but would do this again. Snacks and drinks provided and we were able to help hoist the sails!

My employer chartered the Curlew as a reward for the team. The 3 hour cruise went very smoothly even though the waves were a little more than some of my coworkers expected. The crew quite capably handled the boat, instilling confidence in all of us....More
