Went on a sailing excursion with Captains Otis, Nancy and little girl. What a great trip. Captain Otis and Captain Nancy were very informative about the local wildlife. It was very interesting listening to Captain Otis talking about his sailing adventures. Of course we loved having little girl on the trip with us. If you ever find yourself in Marco... More

On our last day on Marco Island, I booked a true sailing cruise on the Thunderbird racing Trimaran. We all loved it so much. Captain Otis is such an experienced sailor of that boat he can make it cruise in light winds. Luckily, we had 13 knot winds and we were off to the casual races. Casual because they like... More

What a great time we had sailing with Nancy and Otis. If you love sailing be sure and book with them. Nancy is also a master naturalist and shared information about the Marco Island area which we found fascinating. A beautiful boat and great captains!

My husband, my sister-in-law, and I booked a daytime sail with Captain Otis and Captain Nancy and we'll do it again the next time we visit Marco Island. The "trimarran" is a great sailing vessel, and riding in the "Titanic" seat gives you a unique and exilerating experience. The captains are friendly and very laid back. It's like sailing with...

Nancy and Otis make a wonderful experience of enjoying sailing on the Gulf of Mexico while sharing some fun facts about the area and wildlife. You must put Thunderbird Sailing on your "to-do" list while visiting SWFL. Thank you for such a memorable experience!

Our group of six (3 couples) had just a delightful sail this morning with Thunderbird Sailing. For someone from land-locked St. Louis, it's always such a thrill to turn-off the motor, set sail and just listen to the peaceful sound of the wind/boat cutting through the water. The highlight of the trip, though, was our wonderful hosts Otis and Nancy.... More

We recently bought a 20 ft trimaran, but have only owned monohull sailboats before. So we went for a sunset sail with Thunderbird and Captains Nancy and Otis on Wednesday 18 January 2017. As soon as their 40 ft boat had motored into the channel and they had raised the sails, Captain Otis turned the tiller over to Michael. This... More

Captains Otis and Nancy were a delight the entire day as was our sunset sailing cruise. If you do nothing else your entire vacation Do this. Nancy emailed us many great photos afterwards of us and our sunset.

Unequivocally one of the best boat tours our 3 generation family has done. Captain Nancy and Otis were warm and friendly from start to finish. From a baby to Grandpa and Grandma, they made boating fun. Everything was simple for us, with no fuss or concern to small. Spending extra time with dolphins wanting to play, getting our grandson in... More
