Sailing on the Chardonnay is always fun. Even at 10:00 A.M. with fog. Crew is always super. Pastries are delicious. Very safe. Nervous friends are always surprised at how safe they feel.

This cruise was both convenient, comfortable and diverting. My husband and I took the Champagne Cruise for an anniversary weekend. The staff was accommodating, knowledgeable, and kept the mimosas coming. We had a smaller than average group, and there was plenty of seating. This is...More

Captain more interested in training a young man to be a captain. Went out into rough waters. I, who was probably the oldest on the charter, slipped off my seat onto the floor. I was used to Chardonnay cruises that just went along the coast...More

Our captain was fun, knowledgeable and assured us a great adventure. She made sure this was not a formula-driven trip, along the same predictable path. Instead, she and the crew took weather, sea life and the season into account to provide a great ocean experience,...More

Every time we sail it is different. It makes the experience extra special. This time there was a report of Humpback whales and so we zoomed out along the coast to take a look. We got to see quite a few before we had to...More

Hi, husband and I went on the sunset cruise and paid $60 per person for 2 hours with all you can eat and drink. I think all of their cruises are about the same price but well worth it!
