A fantastic day out sailing, with a beautiful boat in excellent upkeep and a knowledgeable, pleasant and reliable captain. It may not be obvious for all how to be safe and compliant in COVID times, yet at the same time make it a fun and entertaining day - captain Steve manages both admirably. We are so thankful - adults and kids had an amazing time.
Pronominal service, friendly and a great personality. I would highly recommend him for your experience.
Steve was a great host - very knowledgeable and friendly, and worked hard to make sure we had a good time. The boat was awesome, with enough space to very comfortably fit all 6 of us. This was our first sailing experience, and the quality of the experience guarantees this won’t be our last!
Very accomodating. Awesome trip, well worth the trip.
