We absolutely loved our schooner ride! The crew was very informative, and approachable. The boats were awesome!! The Windameer boat and crew were the best! Got to help raise the sail. Thanks James and Emma for a great sail!

My mistake thinking this would be an informational tour of the bay. We didn't sail, but motored around mostly in a large circle. Guess I picked the wrong boat. Didn't learn one thing except when we asked a mate a question. Basically a rip-off!

What a great time. Had reservations. Parking was a bit confusing. Ended up parking a few blocks away in paid for parking lot. Staff was great. You can participate in setting the sails. Could have been a little more wind! Trip could have been longer. A great time.

We had a fun afternoon sail with family. It was very relaxing and nice to be on the water. You got a chance to participate with the sail by helping hoist the sails and the kids got a chance to steer the boat with the captain. It would have been nice to have some narration of what we were seeing on the sail as it would have added to the experience. It was fun to be on a 109 year old ship.

This is the first time I rode on a boat like this. I was really looking forward to the schooner ride. We took a very large heavy boat and so it didn’t go very fast. They said later our tour was originally supposed to be on a smaller, swifter boat. Not sure why they changed. NOT very exciting! The crew were all very nice and fun to watch but not the voyage I expected from reading a lot before I booked. Way too expensive for what I received. And THEN asking for money at the end for tips! Disgusting! Everybody has had a rough year!
