We scheduled a sunset cruise. Our captain was Pete. We brought our cooler and had a fantastic ride. I made the reservation a few days in advance. The sailing trip was definitely worth it and would do it again!

There are many downsides to this tour. First of all, there are only 2 picnic tables on board to sit for 40+ people. Most must stand for the entire hour. If you stand, you block the Captain's view and he is none too kind when...More
