Thank you for such a lovely sunset cruise last evening! The weather couldn't have been more perfect! The appetizers were delicious, and the ship was very attractive! We had such a nice time and thank you so much for making this available to us!

The cruise on John Wayne's old yacht, The Wild Goose...was a part of our International Laurel and Hardy 2014 Convention, and it was special. 3 decks of gorgeous woodwork, priceless paintings, intricate carvings, many personal items of Wayne's, and unique amenities make a cruise aboard the Wild Goose a one-of-a-kind experience. There were many pictures of the Duke and other personal items aboard. If you are a fan of the "Duke" and you get the privilege of going on this floating historical museum once owned by John Wayne, take it; you will not be sorry.
