Capt Kurt and Catherine gave our party of six a magical day on the water. They were wonderful hosts, warm, engaging and made us feel so welcomed. Catherine took great pictures of our trip so we didn't have to worry about taking photos and could just enjoy the day. Being able to have a private, intimate sail boat cruise with... More

We took the three hour sunset cruise with Captain Kurt and Cathy. They couldn't have been nicer hosts. Had company bean bags in the back of the sailboat where we just sat back and relaxed and enjoyed the gulf. Captain Kurt is a very very skilled captain. He told us he's been sailing since he was a kid. We enjoyed... More

From the web site this trip looked like it would be spectacular and we were not disappointed! There is a reason the other reviews here are so good! The husband and wife team (Kurt and Catherine) who operate The Catherine are amazing. Their lifetime experience of sailing and of the waters around kept the boat on a nice relaxing pace... More

It is hard for an excursion with a perfect TripAdvisor rating to exceed an expectation, but this one did! They were incredibly accommodating from my initial contact right to the end. The four of us loved the fact that it was just us, Catherine, and Kurt enjoying our sunset cruise. We felt incredibly safe and comfortable from the minute we... More

Wonderful short cruise, quiet and comfortable. Kid friendly cruise with many dolphin sightings and plenty of FL birds. Bring your wine or champagne for the adults in your group, Catherine has the glasses on board. And she takes tons of pics for you to remember your cruise by. Just jump online and copy any you want for your personal album.
