“A don't miss experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

My husband and I capped off our getaway to Pensacola Beach with a sunset sail on a beautiful boat. Captain Jim and Cindy treated us with great hospitality, and we even got to see dolphins swimming in the bay which was a bonus! We absolutely recommend this to everyone looking for a fun, relaxing adventure.

“Words can't express how wonderful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

The owners were so wonderfully nice and sincere! They truly wanted you to have a good time! They provided snacks and beverages and made you feel at home! We did the snorkeling and though the water wasn't the clearest from the recent storm, we had a blast! The time flew by and they even gave us extra time! Excellent service conversation and fun! Ten stars out of five!

“Great Day on the Water!”

Captain Jim and Cindy showed us a wonderful time on the beautiful 34 ft sailboat!

Our twin 8 year olds had a blast and enjoyed learning about sailboats.

Thank you for a great time!

“Absolutely fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this sailing trip. We actually visited in May 2013... Although Jim and Cindy did not captain the boat on our sunset sail, they did find us a great replacement captain (I can't remember his name now). We did meet Jim and Cindy though and both seemed like great, friendly people. We were the only 2 on the boat and Our sail was great! Snacks were offered. We were lucky enough to see tons of dolphins. But the highlight of our trip was just the relaxation and talking to our captain - we learned so much about him and about sailing! This is a must do trip! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! This company really knows Customer Service!

“Upscale ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Definitely the most pleasant, out of the ordinary beach trip activity. For 3 teens and a 5 year old, hopefully one that they will have pleasant memories of.
We did a 2 hour sunset cruise - had originally hoped to see some dolphins, however the fact that there were none on this day went unnoticed by all as the simple technicalities of being on a sailboat was the main enjoyment. We were thrilled to be able to learn some of the finesse required to manage moving a vessel through the water sans powered propulsion.
The hosts were very pleasureable and gracious, with good knowledge of the local area. We will be back!
