This was so cool! We went on the star gazing tour and it was so amazing! They take you far out so it's very dark and the guide tells stories of the stars and history and legends. Truly an amazing night.

We stopped by the Western Union on our visit thinking about going out on her again. Unfortunately, we found the magnificent historic ship in terrible shape. We hope that action is taken to save this wonderful piece of history.

This is an amazing sunset cruise. The Western Union has a rich history. Help hoist the sails, then sit back and relax to free food and drink as you watch the sun dip below the horizon. That is, until it's time to fire the cannon....More

This is a great sunset cruise. The staff is very friendly and the Captain told some great stories. Once we were under sail, it was amazing how quiet it was since there were no engines running. The sunset was beautiful!! Good value and good times.

This, along with our cruise on the Jolly Rover ll, were my two favorite things in Key West. You can't go wrong with a sunset cruise. This is not a party boat, thank goodness.
