Visitors sip three 16-ounce microbrews from Rock Bottom Brewery and snack on two paired appetizers as a vintage sailing vessel carries them around Naples Island, Treasure Island, Alamitos Bay, and the Long Beach Peninsula. Appetizers include red-basil hummus made with imported Turkish butter and the specialty pesto tort with layers of provolone, cream cheese, pine nuts, and sun-dried tomatoes. Complete with a captain and beer host, the cruise is capped at six passengers to create an intimate environment, and wine enthusiasts can substitute three glasses of red or white wine in lieu of beer. Cruises typically sail on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, based on availability.
Devoted surfers, sailors, and wine connoisseurs Nate and Shane channel their passions for sea waves and sips into scenic beverage cruises offered by Corks Away. Together they pilot the vintage 1961 sailboat, Wildflower, which they refurbished themselves, and its sister vessel, the Sunflower, through the waters surrounding Long Beach. Though the content of the cruises varies by season, past voyages have included mimosa flights, wine tastings, and pairings of gourmet appetizers. The duo can even accommodate large groups with their 72-foot 1920s wooden schooner, the Dirigo II, which stays docked to board 25 passengers comfortably.
