Experience the joy of sailing on a private cruise aboard a beautiful 40 foot sailboat in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Offering personalized half and full day cruises, sunset cruises, weddings (the first mate is an interfaith minister and notary public), corporate team building events with multiple boats, and memorials at sea. Captain Ron's Maine built yacht has been featured in a book about the world's best sailboats. Relax and enjoy the scenery or actively participate in sailing the boat. With a lifetime of experience, Captain Ron is always happy to share his passion for sailing by teaching anyone interested in learning. His countless stories of his many adventures at sea are an added bonus. But most of all, the quiet, tranquility and sense of freedom you'll experience gliding through the water, powered by nothing but the wind, will remain with you long after you return to shore.

I was looking for a way to surprise my mom for her birthday and found Captain Ron on TripAdvisor. I booked a sunset cruise and I went into the experience with pretty high expectations having read all the great reviews. But I have to say, it was even better than I could have ever expected. To start, the Endurance is... More

My wife, Janet, and I went out with Captain Ron and Andrea for a 4-hour cruise off Ft. Lauderdale. I'm a new sailor so I asked Capt. Ron to make it more of an educational experience for us instead of simply a cruise. Both Janet and I worked the lines, sails, and helm and had a fantastic experience. We both... More

Our experience aboard Endurance was nothing short of amazing! Captain Ron and Andrea are very nice and hospitable sailors. They made our trip one to remember. We spent most of our time relaxing on the bow, though sailing the boat gave us a true understanding of what it's like to be on the open ocean with just the wind and... More

We had a great trip. Captain Ron and Andrea are fine, engaging hosts. Tip - bring food and drink, simple stuff is best. Water, little bags of popcorn and pretzels are the only offerings.

Thank you for sailing with us and for taking the time to post a review. We're sorry that you weren't satisfied with the complimentary snacks that we offer. While the individually packaged snacks are small, safe food handling dictates that they be served this way and we always offer our guests as many as they'd like. Our detail oriented pre-charter...

I contacted Captain Ron and Andrea via email, and they responded quickly with sailing options - so we chose a 4 hour adventure on the high seas...and it was FABULOUS! The boat was beautiful and the experience with Captain Ron and Andrea was so entertaining and insightful! Our teens were curious about everything and our wonderful hosts were so obliging.... More

We decided to go sailing for Valentines day. It was the best outing and Cap Ron and Andrea made the experience even better. They are so nice and informative about their boat and sailing overall. They really love what they do and it shows. Cap Ron lets you take the helm and get a first hand experience sailing. They also... More

My family and I had a wonderful time on the Endurance. Had three kids with us, ages 16, 14 and 11. Everyone enjoyed it in a personal way. And everyone got to take the helm and steer the boat. (Confession: Our 11-year-old got more speed going than her dad!). They supplied water and soft drinks and we brought sandwiches &... More

Amazing Sunday on the water!! I just went on the half day charter with with my husband and 4 friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Captain Ron and his wife Andrea were amazing hosts. Captain Ron was great about pointing out sea life (we saw sea turtles mating!) and explaining how the sailboat worked. He even let us steer the... More

My friend and I chartered the sailboat with Captain Ron and Andrea for 4 hours (11a-3p). My friend and I have done this many times together in Chicago but this might have been the best experience thus far.
