Enjoyed a beautiful afternoon cruise on this catamaran. The winds were up and so we were a little nervous about how the sail would go. It was fantastic! This ship and it's Captain put us at ease immediately. Would do it again, for sure.

We went on a sunset cruise to celebrate our anniversary and had an incredible time. Got lucky with red tide effects being minimal. James was an excellent captain for us and we had a very relaxing time on the netting up front!

Carey, This does not sound like our company? I was aware of an issue with the electric propulsion / generator causing for a slow ride- but that is all. We were indeed having some technology issues with that system- and learning curve to boot. We...More
