Valentines Day Sunset Sail

Captain Paul took us and 2 other couples out for a wonderful 2.5 hour sunset sail. Captain Paul was entertaining and knowledgeable. Well worth the price.

I can't believe the inventor of the "Cell Grasp" took us on a cruise! ;) Capt. Paul is not only an inventor, but one heck of a captain and a very nice guy. He and his first mate (whose name escapes me) not only piloted the ship but also acted as waiters, filling our drinks and helping us with the... More

This is one of those reviews you hate to write. Because when you find something this good and wonderful, you kind of want to keep it too yourself. But Captain Paul and Alex deserve a lot of praise for the adventure they take you on. From the first phone call to the last hand shake,( when you leave) you know... More

Captain Paul skippers a relaxing and memorable sail, in our case with 3 couples on a beautiful day. Everything is 'shipshape' and very peaceful and relaxing with great views of Sanibel and the south Gulf coast. Enjoy the sun and water with a splash of history and good conversation!! The only thing you will regret is how fast time goes.

What a wonderful time we had on the water with Captain Paul and Alex. We all had a meaningful time and found the crew friendly and knowledgeable. Watching the sunset was captivating. I highly recommend time at sea on the Panacea!

My son was here for the holidays visiting from Savannah. Capt Paul made our trip so very special, not only with his years of experience but his engaging personality. The boat was very comfortable and we loved having bathroom facilities that you could actually stand up in! We've taken other sailing trips out of Ft Myers that were nice, but... More

If you are looking for a sailing experience for the memory book, look no further. Captain Paul will give you his full attention, no need to worry about experience this gentleman has total control of his vessel, along with Captain Alex. Our eleven year old son had the time of his life. My husband and I decided we have a... More

My husband and I always go on a sunset sail on vacation, and this one did not disappoint. Capt. Paul was fantastic to work with when booking and lovely when we arrived at the boat. The boat "Panacea' is gorgeous, and we were instantly made comfortable. The sail itself was stunning - we even had a few dolphins hang out... More

I contacted Captain Paul almost 5 months in advance to plan my proposal to my now fiance. Paul could not possibly have been more accommodating to my requests in the planning process for the sunset cruise. The sail could not have gone better. We saw dolphins and witnessed a beautiful sunset just before I proposed. Paul and his first mate... More
