The crew (Milo and Grace) were so friendly and helpful. They really go the extra yard to help make your time with them perfect. Everything was just wonderful. The yacht, the crew, the food... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We had a lot of fun helping decorate the yacht and finding ways to make your guests feel special. It's really humbling to see a group of friends make such an effort to create such special memories for the bride to be. More

Had a wonderful time celebrating my 21st birthday with family and friends on a gourmet sailing trip! the staff were friendly and very approachable. Nelson pulled off stunning weather and everyone enjoyed the trip. A little rough sailing made for some sea sickness but over all an amazing experience!!

This time I took my family on a lunchtime cruise. As soon as we stepped on the boat, Milo and the crew treated us like VIP's. They are so professional and lovely.

From beautiful views, smooth sailing and perfect weather to match, to a delicious meal that satisfied everyone on-board, I cannot recommend Gourmet Sailing enough! The crew were super friendly and hospitable and I struggle to imagine anyone that would not enjoy the experience. Thank you to the team!
