    Wonderful 25th Anniversary celebration for my husband and me

    We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion on the Privateer. The crew was super friendly and entertaining, and the musician kept us singing along to the oldies but goodies. We saw dolphins as promised and the beautiful colors of a PCB sunset. I will certainly recommend this to friends and family!!
