Sunset cruise!

Absolutely beautiful. The crew was amazing and super down to earth. There's nothing quite like seeing Castillo de San Marcos from the water. Breathtaking!

Powered by wind or motor, depending on conditions, this ship is beautiful. The crew is attentive, capable, and friendly. They asked for volunteers to hoist the mainsail, so I got in some exercise; it was harder than I expected, but the crew would have jumped in if they needed to. We set sail just as the sun set and returned... More

We were a party of 4 doing the sunset cruise, last week of September and we left the boat with somewhat mixed feelings. Here are the reasons. Good points: - this is a real schooner, and it is really beautiful. - the captain and his crew are obviously skilled sailors. They can maneuver easily this ship in the bay which... More

We took the sunset tour on the schooner and had a blast! Captain John, Jimmy, Ryan, and Avery were a great crew. Everyone was personable, friendly, and funny! It was a full cruise but we never felt crowded. The views were great, especially watching the sunset on the waves. We highly recommend if you'd like to relax in the water... More

My husband and I chose to go on the sunset sail after our wedding and it was absolutely perfect! The captain and crew were so friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating! My husband was even able to help raise the sails before we set off. The sail itself was wonderful! I am usually pretty nervous about being on the water, but the... More

Cap'n John, Avery and Jimmy. What an incredible team. So friendly, very accommodating, such nice people. A beautiful scenic tour at sunset. I can't recommend these guys highly enough. And we didn't really see at sunset due to a huge impending storm but regardless, these guys make this a wonderful journey. All in all, a fabulous experience.
