When do sunset cruises run? Are they seasonal?

Our sunset cruises generally run from the third week in March through the end of October. Our first official Sunset Cruise of the 2014 season has already started!

What route do we take?

Generally this is the Captains Choice - very often we revisit "The Captains favorite spot."

Do we need to tip the crew?

This is up to you, but do keep in mind that our crew works hard to make every trip a great one and a tip shows your appreciation. Cup cakes and chips always seem to make a mess - tip well.
