  1. Sunset cruise in the St.Johns, so much more fun than we expected!!! Ralph and Leslie were the best captain/hosts. We had an extremely relaxing and fun filled night. I can’t think of anything at all that could have made the evening more perfect. Beautiful, very clean and very comfortable boat. Stop thinking and book a date, impossible to regret that decision!!

  2. The Now and Zen evening sailing was the highlight of the month!!! It was fantastic! The sailing was smooth and wonderful. The accommodations were terrific. What a great way to celebrate anything! Loved it and plan to do it again.
