We had brunch with a group of friends on the Wild Goose. It was cool to see the rooms and learn a bit of history about John Wayne. Endless champagne and yummy food made the day an A+! We even got a private tour of the engine room from the captain.

We just went on a Hornblower cruise on the Wild Goose for Sunday brunch. The ship is absolutely beautiful. We had a great tour of Balboa Island and the landmarks of the harbor. The servers were amazing. Thank you for all your hospitality.
