Great calm waters, sightseeing of seals, birds, buildings, yachts, ships… Great captain, made our sail very safe and enjoyable. Though we didn’t see the sunset due to cloudy sky, it didn’t low our expectations. Captain Frank was very respectful to us and great professional.

This was an awesome sunset trip! Our captain Jarod was excellent! He made it fun and exciting. We were with other couples and it was absolutely wonderful. Def need to request Jarod when going for this trip. He let's you do your own thing for half the trip and then takes you and talks to you about all the awesome parts of the bay and the naval spots. This is a must do trip!
