Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Without doubt, Logan Knight the course instructor just nailed the serious / fun mix to the mast. I now have confidence framed with caution that I could take my family on a charter boat on inshore waters and give them a holiday to remember. Antigua is utterly beautiful and in a choice between this course on say, the West Coast of Scotland and here there is one winner.

To have our course canceled multiple times because of 'boat maintenance' and never get to complete it???? Maybe we should get some sort of refund and or apology?
I would recommend attempted to do any RYA courses else where.

I should have known not to use this company when I saw one of their boats sail out of control ver into another smaller vessel slicing it in half sinking it in the 2022 New Years regatta in Antigua.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt which was my mistake.

This company is run by a bunch of seemingly nice people who shouldn't be allowed to sail on the ocean let alone teach people how to do so.
They will take your money first and anything that happens after that is out of your control. Im just lucky all I lost was my time and money.

I don't recommend using Ondeck if you care about, safety, hygiene, value your time and money, quality of education, or anything that you may hope to receive from a marine training company.

I would not recommend this company to anyone. They have cancelled our Sunset Cruise twice within the space of 3 days with no reason stated, for the second cancellation they only gave us 20 minutes notice. Shocking service.

I did my course a few weeks ago with Gary as an instructor. Very professional and kind person, great teacher and a very nice person. I feel I learned a lot during the course and had a great time. I will definitely do more courses with him. Highly recommended.

My group of 6 booked the half-day private charter during our stay in Antigua and we had an exceptional experience. Everything from booking to sailing was made easy and made our trip stress free.

The boat we were provided with was a sail boat (it was our first time on a sail boat) and the water was a bit rocky so we were all super anxious, but the captain and skipper did everything in their power to ease our anxiety and find calmer waters.

We stopped for a bit of snorkeling off of Falmouth beach and the water was very calm there. It should be noted that they only had 2 life vests, so if your group is full of non-swimmers you may want to request more.

Throughout our sailing, we were given a bit of a history lesson about some of the points of interest we were passing, which was an unexpected surprise and greatly welcomed.

If you're looking for a private sailing experience, I would definitely recommend Ondeck.

Thanks very much Melissa and pleased you enjoyed it. We will ensure there are plenty of swimming aids on in future, that was an oversight. We did carry plenty of life jackets but they are different to the ones you would use for swimming. Hope to see you again

Had a wonderful day sailing with OnDeck - the crew were attentive & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic and plentiful. Would not hesitate to book with them again.

My husband and I had one of the most amazing experiences with Ryan and Sarel. These guys kept it fun and relaxed and showed us the ropes a bit. We got to watch a beautiful sunset on a gorgeous sail boat. It wouldn’t have been as great as it was without Sarel and Ryan.

We had a nice 1/2 day sail with Ryan and Phil. We hit the open sea first and then toured Falmouth harbour. We went swimming near Pigeon Point beach and then cruised back to the slipway. Lots of fun.

Many thanks to Arran and each of the crew of Spirit of Juno. Everyone was professional, courteous, safety conscious, extremely hard working and did an excellent job of communicating to the charter guests when and what was required of them.
It was an amazing experience I will always remember and I highly recommend Ondeck to anyone looking for a sailing adventure.
