Beautiful and comfortable 82' schooner. Crew is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable in regards to sailing and the history of the area. If it was the 5:30 cruise, I would have had wine and snacks to make the trip even more luxurious!

AS answered, the owners are two women who take turns sailing the ship. During the sail, you will be offered some light snack and soft drink. The captain, mates, and owner are all very cordial and professional.
