Nice boat...not crowded...plentiful opportunity to taste, pleasant sail- would have like more of and out and back rather than staying mostly in harbour. Crew was very nice. Enjoyed the trip.

Once we were on the ship it was great. The staff was friendly. The boat was beautiful. It was big with plenty of space for everyone to fit comfortably. It is a great idea for groups or couples. There was also plenty of beer to go around while sailing around the harbor.
