We went on the sunset cruise. It was so beautiful. Only thing was one of the guys talked for over an hour about historical sights which we weren't really interested in. There was wine and beer which was a nice touch. Overall we had a very relaxing cruise and would definitely recommend it.

We had a nice time. The boat was very clean. The sunset and weather was lovely. Only criticism is that the young man that was narrating talked for too long. He talked for about an hour. His information was interesting but it went on too long.

A squall came up during the cruise, and the crew handled it very well. All the travelers went below deck, into the gallery. We stayed warm and dry. It was exciting. It ended as quickly as it started and then we saw TWO rainbows in the sky! Later we enjoyed the sunset. It was a lot of fun!

Was a very enjoyable ride! Especially the rain squall which gave an experience of ship handling not normally received on a sunset trip..

This 2-hour cruise is so peaceful. Only negative: They sold more tickets than seating space, so some people sat on the floor of the boat. It may have been due to the heavy rains the day before. They should cap the ticket sales so everyone has enough seats. Other than that, the staff members were awesome and extremely knowledgeable and... More

What a great way to spend a couple of hours, on this beautiful, huge sail boat. The crew lets anyone who wants to help "raise the sails" join in. You can listen to an historical talk from one of the crew members or just settle in to an area of the boat and enjoy the ride!

Wonderful Sunset Cruise along with a history lesson of the Revolutionary War. The crew was exceptional! I lifted one of the sails.

The trip was the most relaxing event of the year although it was rather chilly. It was a chance to do something different with someone special.
