Since I had never been sailing before I didn't know what to expect. This was pure relaxation! Captain Green knows his stuff and makes you feel very at ease and relaxed. It was a beautiful sunset cruise! I would do this again everyday if possible.

Thank you! Part of the appeal of offering Private Sails (from my perspective) is being able to tailor a custom experience for my guests. It was a pleasure.

We went for a 2 hour cruise. It was a beautiful day and a perfect sail! Green is an experienced captain and a bit of a local historian too. I could not recommend more highly.

All sails at On Watch are private. If you would like to stream music on Lyra's Bluetooth speaker with your device you are welcome to, but it's entirely up to you.

$290 for a very nice and informative 2 hour sail. it was a very nice time. Capt. Green also let me take the helm. It is also customary to tip 15-20%. He is well worth it! Enjoy.
