We wanted something different from sightseeing. It was just the thing! Really impressive vessel and pleasant crew. A nice, relaxing small excursion.

This sailing adventure was totally boring and lame. We went for our 8 and 5 yr old and they hated it. I thought about jumping overboard to swim back. That’s right - true statement. The sailing did start on time at 11am and ended on...More
