We did a 4:30-6:30 sunset sail on a Friday and it was excellent. Everyone was very friendly, informative and they always kept you aware of what was happening with the boat. Would highly recommend.

We had hoped to book the afternoon cruise but due to availability, we ended up on the Sunset cruise, which could not have been more wonderful with perfect weather conditions. Our crew of three were attentive, interesting, and shared about their experiences, True Love, and... More

I highly recommend the Sunset Cruise on the True Love. It was a beautiful way to end an evening. The Captain and Crew were so much fun (especially Terry). The boat is beautiful and classic, and the light appetizers were delicious. In my opinion this is a great option for a group of friends or couples, but not the best... More
