I absolutely love this ride. I have taken this ride 3 time and each year it is a bit different. This year Captain Chris took us out about 2.5 miles into the Gulf. It was fantastic. It's a must do whenever your in SPI.

We didn't do the sunset cruise sorry I can't give a good answer. But the boat is rather small probably 50'. There was about 20 people on our excursion and plenty of room to walk around, sit, be alone.
