A thrilling experience

The catamaran is an exciting sailing ship, run by a man who explains it all, and cares for his guests. I now take the trip each time I come to Momtauk.

We arranged for a 3 hour private sail on The Mon Tiki to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. There were 9 of us and we all had a terrific time! Captain Dave could not have been more professional and personable. The boat is not a luxurious yacht - but was perfect for us - exactly what we wanted. It was... More

We are nearing 70 years. My wife was worried about sea sickness but the catamaran did not rock side to side. A large younger group came onboard and we all had a great time together. Thanks Capt. for the beach boys duo. :)

This was a relaxing and fun trip...Capt Dave is a nice guy..his focus on safety is appropriate...I guess some could see it as condescending but, hey, it's HIS livelihood (not to mention your life) so his focus is fine...it was a quick little motoring to an anchor spot and a time to swim...simple place..easy on/off boat....sailing into sound was enjoyable...

The Montiki is a great experience -- our family of five enjoyed a wonderful 3-hour sail with captain David. We motored out, anchored and swam off the back (easy access on/off), and sailed back. The boat is comfortable, outfitted with cushions and bean bag chairs.

We went out on a sail this past Sunday evening, which did not have a sunny forecast. Twelve of us arrived, hoping for better weather, but doubtful as well. Our captain suggested we give it a try. Twenty minutes in, there was a break in the clouds, but about 30 minutes later, the rain began. We returned to port an... More

We went for a sunset sail last night with our young kids. The crew (Eric and Joe) were great and looked after us well. The kids loved it although it was quite choppy. My only complaint would be that for the price I was surprised that they didn't provide free water.

I organized an outing for a group of coworkers. I wanted a fun, relaxed experience where people could get to know each other. This was absolutely perfect - everyone raved about what a great idea it was. Being able to bring along our own drinks and snacks, the relaxed atmosphere on the boat -- love the beanbag chairs -- and... More

My husband and I spent a lovely two hours on the Mon Tiki on July 13 for their afternoon sail. It was a gorgeous day and our sailing cruise certainly matched the weather. Captain Dave was a charming host, ably assisted in managing a really beautiful three-sail boat by his daughter. Near the end of the cruise, we even rescued... More

My family and I were not welcome Captain David's sunset cruise. Before boarding, my six year old son nearly fell off the dock. As a concerned mother, I yelled for my son to step back from the edge. Captain David immediately told me that I needed to "chill." He suggested that I let my son fall into the water instead... More

We are sorry that you and your family were disappointed. We'd like to take a moment to explain why Captain David felt it was best for all concerned that we refund your money and have the trip proceed without you. In four seasons of operation as a USCG Certified Sailing Vessel, hundreds of excursions, and thousands of passenger trips, Captain... More
