Top notch sailing experience. Pleasant, comfortable. Captain is knowledgeable and informative.
Bill was awesome. Very communicative leading up to the sail with weather, directions, and other logistical specifics. The trip left and returned on time, Bill was very knowledgeable about the boat and the area, let my wife and I take the helm several times and the boat was in great condition. Would totally sail with Cpt Bill again.
I would definitely book again, Capt. Bill made sailing an adventure for my Birthday and we really enjoyed out cruise. Very professional, safe and relaxing.
Great time, with good value and the nearby dockside restaurant sells great food. Go now with this nice fall weather and you may see dolphins feeding too!
Highly recommend sailing with Captain Bill. It was a wonderful, safe and fun day on the water.
