A friend of mine and I booked a last minute sunset cruise with Captain Ali. He was calm, knowledgeable, and fun. The sailing was beautiful and he even let us drive for a while. In all, i would highly recommend.

We stayed on Eleuthera in late April 2013. Had read the excellent reviews here for Cap'n Ali's Sail to Bahamas Day Charter and emailed him a week before our departure with some specific questions. He responded several days later, but his response was canned and merely directed us to pay half on his website and then we'd get more details.... More

Ali A, Owner at Sail to Bahamas Day Charter, responded to this review

Hello first so very sorry about the poor communication, it is very difficult to to have any communication on the remote islands of the bahamas, let alone do business in the way people except in the states. As the review says even they had spotty phone service and they were on land where the cell towers are. I was on... More

Our family truly enjoyed a day trip around Harbour Island with Captain Ali. Once we'd spent a week visiting all the beaches on the island, we wanted to check out the island from a different angle, and we couldnt have found a better way than a day trip from Harbour Island on Ali's 52" sailboat. Ali is really a great... More

My husband and I found Ali online and booked with him for a day's sailing around the Harbour Island / Eleuthera Bay on a gorgeous, sunny day in March on his 52-foot sailboat. Ali was a perfect host... relaxed, capable, enthusiastic, and so proud of the Bahamas. He cooked up a great meal on the boat, served drinks, took us... More

We spent one of our days in Harbour island chartering a private sailboat with Captain Ali. We got lucky! Captain Ali's first mate and girlfriend Sara joined us. It was me, my wife and the two of them. We started with a few cocktails as soon as we got on the boat. That was followed by a crash course in... More

One of our most memorable experiences on Eleuthera in May 2011 was a day sail charter with Captain Ali on a 52 foot yacht. We left from the dock in north Eleuthera at 10:30 am and got to spend the entire day sailing, snorkeling, and touring Harbour Island. It wound up being only the two of us and Captain Ali... More
