If you are visiting the Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, Estero, Naples area of Southwest Florida, I highly recommend an afternoon or evening sail aboard this boat!! My family flew from Holland/The Netherlands to attend our vowel renewal and they wanted to do something fun and relaxing the following day. Since they love being outdoors and enjoy going to beaches and... More

We had a great sailing tour (sunset trip) with Captain Bud in October 2015. Saw some dolphins and had nice conversations with him, it was a great experience. If your're in Fort Myers, you should book a sailing tour, we absolutely recommend him! Im Okotober 2015 hatten wir eine Sonnenuntergangstour mit ihm gebucht, es war total toll! Er war super... More

Thanks to Captain Bud for an awesome day sailing off Ft Myers Bch. When you are in the area we highly recommend a sail with him on his "Ole Glory" sailboat. You can find him at www.sailSWFL.com. He is a highly experienced sailor, as we are. We didn't just motor along with a sail lufting in the breeze...we hauled the... More

I was happy to see he was open all weekends, since there was misinformation on this site that said he was closed Saturday and Sunday. Great sailing experience again.

We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon on the water with Captain Bud and our family over Spring Break! He made us feel very safe and right at home while being fun and entertaining for our kids - ages 5, 9 and 11!

We were a crew of six plus Captain Bud and his trusty mate. One of our group had a Captain's license and was able to have some hands on time with the sales and ropes. Our weather was not the most windy, so us northern mid-westerners felt we were always safe. Hard to say what was best, the catamaran was... More

On our last night in Ft. Myers, we reserved a private sunset sail for a romantic night of sailing. Captain Bud was very acconmodating, as we called at the last minute and we're able to sail aboard "Old Gloty" that night. We are big fans of catamarans and Captain Bud even offered to let my boyfriend skipper the boat, which... More

Captain Bud was awesome! He made it interesting and fun! We had booked the boat for four of us as a birthday surprise and Captain Bud followed through with all he said he would do. He provided us with speakers to play music, floatations for the water when we swam, water, descriptions of the water way, and so much more.... More
