No Full Sails sunset sail: The Foresail was not raised due to a jammed rigging issue. The Replica America arrived at the Yacht Club on St Andrew Bay very late and some confusion on Sunset Sail departure occurred. The Captain avoided to engage in conversation and passed questions down to the crew, one of which was aboard for only a... More

The America cruise through Pensacola Bay was Comfortable and relaxing. A neat experience to be on board and participate in raising the sails. Captain Sears was laid back and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed learning about America's past. Thank you, America Crew!

This is coming from one who doesn't spend measurable time either reading or (especially) writing reviews/experiences on the inter web, as I am truly "old school". I will say the crew was great, the boat was/is magnificent, and the run was most enjoyable. Our arrival was met with virtually zero signage or visual cues (i.e. no help or clue we... More

My wife and I looked forward to the sunset cruise on America's Cup. We were not disappointed. Capt. Troy Sears and crew were top notch in every way. How did she sail? Like a dream! She glided through the water and waves effortlessly. It was both a thrill and an honor to go back in time and see what it... More

It was a very enjoyable excursion that showed The Blue Angels final home show from a completely different view. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable!

Unfortunately, Me and my grandson were not able to make it due to a severe reaction from a injection I had in my knees the day before. I gave a five star rating because they would have refunded my money up to 48 hours prior, which is more than I can say for other companies. Looking forward to one day... More

I talked to folks who took the afternoon "sail" in Mobile last weekend. There was not a lot to see. However, we took the sail out of Pensacola on 11/12, and it was just great. Perfect weather that day. We motored out to just off the lighthouse and the Navy Base and watched the Blue Angels air show. There were... More

Very unique experience with knowledgable, helpful crew. Sailed in Pensacola Bay ,watched the Blue Angels directly overhead, saw dolphins up close....doesn't get any better than that. Beautiful ship replica with modern marine bathrooms!
