The captain and his sweet crew (neighbour children in training) was great the whole time, and made sure we were comfortable. The captain even gave us extra time on the boat to enjoy the whole sunset. He also taught us about sailing and we were able to try to steer the boat :) Thank you for a perfect evening!"..."
