    The view was gorgeous. The crew was great. We had a great time. The moon rosé between the downtown buildings as an extra treat. The sunset was spectacular.only bad thing was the wind and cold temperature. But we dressed for it.

    We went at the beginning of May and it was quite cold. Crew was very nice and attentive. Views were great.
    Beautiful, fun 2 hour sailing cruise

    My boyfriend and I are locals but wanted to do something fun, touristy and a little unique. We had an amazing time on this trip. We lucked out and had perfect gorgeous weather but I still think it would be fun even in Seattles classic cold cloudy weather. Because of the cloudless weather we were able to see mount rainier along with the space needle, the coastline and of course other sailboats. The boat itself looks small (and beautiful) but surprisingly has room for everyone to sit down inside. Once we started going though, most people got up and walked around, switched seats etc. Hoisting the sails was very fun and an experience you won’t get on a non sailboat. Just be prepared - sailboats naturally tilt to one side and I think it scared people initially. It will not tip over. The crew was super friendly! And fun too. Alcohol and water/soda was available to buy. This was not a guided tour but it was kind of nice to not have someone formally talking. Instead we enjoyed the views, the breeze and the company. It was nice to be on a boat with a bunch of people who were happy to escape everything for a couple hours. My boyfriends favorite part was the cannon firing. They have a cute little cannon on board they fired. We thought it was a joke when they asked us to cover our ears because it was so small but that thing was loud! I’d definitely do this again and would recommend to anyone looking for a nice 2 hour booze cruise type sail. Such a fun time!
    Water adventure you can’t miss

    Sunset sail
    Jiahao_L, Oct 2023
    Seeing the city lights and being in the water was amazing. But there was no sunset to be seen (can’t be controlled). The rest of the sail was a bit boring after an hour. They only had cold drinks, and it was getting cold late at night. Would have loved a coffee or hot coco. Overall a fun experience but won’t do again.
    it was well worth the adventure

    The people we got to meet and interact with The second mate was entertaining and the view was beautiful
    Most tubular ride on the waves.

    Great crew and extraordinary sailing. Most excellent experience treading the once uncharted course. :)
    Add to your must do list!

    Beautiful night for this event. The crew was friendly and engaging. The views were amazing. Would highly recommend
    Great view, fun people...
    Scott_M, Oct 2023
    Great view, fun people running the show. Bring a coat as it can get a little chilly on the way back into port.
    The crew was friendly but wouldn’t recommend it
    Donald_B, Sep 2023
    Was not worth the money. We really didn’t go anywhere. Just kind of floated around the port. We wanted more site seeing. Said it had drinks which we had to pay for. Other than watching other guests help hoist the sails and a cannon shoot there really wasn’t anything to it.

    Looked so forward to this and there was not enough wind so we sat in the same place most of the time. We were not that far from the pier. It was very disappointing.

    Great trip, but would have liked explanations of what we were seeing! Terrific crew and comfortable boat
    Samantha_K, Sep 2023
    We had a great time! Beautiful views and great crew. We all even got to help lift the sails. Highly recommend for a family evening activity.
    You get what you pay for!

    Great experience! The captain and deck hands were kind, helpful, and informative. It was a gorgeous night on the sound. Highly recommend this trip for out of towners. It was worth the cost.
