Five stars, because the cruise was wonderful. So fun and a great crew. The check in process though, was terrible! Maybe because a giant cruise ship was being loaded with passengers and a million tons of luggage at the same pier we were informed to go to...Pier 66. After asking several "big cruise workers" if they knew where we should be checking in for our "tall ship cruise", we finally found a little portable awning with a young girl, who took our names and pointed to a small building and told us to wait by a fountain. NOT a good or easy check in process. Also, when we asked the young lady where we could use a restroom, she said we could buy something at the local restaurant or walk about 10 minutes "that way" pointing down the street! NOT a satisfying answer. There needs to be a close restroom available for guests waiting to sail on the tall ship!!!

It was a very affordable, short (2 hours), enjoyable sunset outing on the Elliot bay. Will recommend to locals and visitors. Although I wish there has been some commentary about the different buildings and structures you pass along the sailing.

What an amazing experience! The crew was so welcoming and fun that it felt like we were on our own boat. We also had excellent weather. It was the best experience of our Seattle vacation, and we did it all!

Hello! I am a native of Seattle and was very, very pleased with this sail. Very fun/experienced crew and safe. Great way to see Elliot Bay. Highly recommend.

Great crew and very enjoyable sail. Couldnt have asked for a better time thank you!!!
