How was your experience?
This was my 2nd time on the Shearwater sailboat. It was a beautiful day. The crew (as always) was fantastic and the trip was just long enough (about 2 hours start to finish). BUT, I have one major issue…. they advertise free beer / wine all over the description of this event (and most of the reviews do too). The first trip I took (last year) honored this. It was such a good deal, I convinced 7 of my friends to book this trip again this year. Unfortunately, the trip I booked this past Saturday didn't offer wine/beer but instead charged by the glass. It was a major buzz kill (literally) especially after having booked the same exact trip less than a year ago. When I asked the bartender how this was possible, she said their policies "change" and are "different from season to season." I call it FALSE ADVERTISING! The trip was great but everyone needs to know that they advertise something they don't necessarily provide. Be prepared to shell out another $20 for booze even when they say it’s included in your ticket price.
