What a great experience. My wife and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary in New Orleans and this sunset sail was the cherry on top. Doug was a great captain. If you’re looking for something unique to do while visiting NOLA this should be on your list.
If we could give them more stars, we would. Every aspect of the sail was top notch. Service was awesome, Captain Doug and Rena are great hosts and cruising the lake is a beautiful way to see New Orleans. Just a fantastic experience.
We took a chance on something new in NOLA, and it was well worth the gamble. Such a beautiful, peaceful evening – and we were treated like royalty! It was just what we needed to de-stress and re-focus on us. We are planning our next trip within the next month…might even become a “habit”…sailing was smooth, snacks were fabulous, and the company was awesome.
