Owner description: The home slips for ECSailing vessels is at Sabine Marina on Little Sabine Bay, in the heart of Pensacola Beach Florida--walking distance from great restaurants, beaches and shops along the boardwalk. We would enjoy giving you a tour of our vessels or discussing the charts of our sailing waters to help you prepare for a sailing class, bareboat or captained charter, but please call before stopping by to make sure we are available to greet you... we like to be out enjoying tye-dyed sunsets, emerald green waters and sugar white beaches of the emerald coast as much as possible!

For a smaller, family operated charter company - they are among the best. Customer service is clearly their strong suit and that is what keeps us coming back again and again. While their boats are not as pristine as those from the major charterers, they are well maintained, clean and well provisioned. I have bareboat chartered with them three times now, twice with my family of five and once with "the fellas." Captain Rick and Peggy are certain to see us again!

We live close to Pensacola Beach, so we go there often. We love it here - so beautiful and friendly with terrific restaurants and great places to stay. Very family friendly, but still with some great adult night spots. We love to vacation in our "own backyard". After seeing sailboats going by for years, we finally decided to give it a try. Our family chose an 8 hour charter, brought our own food and drinks and snorkel gear, but ECY provided everything else we needed. With a full kitchen and bathroom on board, we were very comfortable. They sailed us to two spots -- a snorkeling reef and a beach you can only get to by boat. We anchored out both times and swam to shore. The captain knew we would be too tired to swim back, so he came out to the beach and got us in a small rubber boat - he was so right! The kids totally fell in love with all the rooms and little nooks on the boat and loved riding in the little boat, we all enjoyed learning to sail (mini-lesson included), taking turns at the wheel and pulling on the lines that control the sails. We can easily see why people buy boats and live aboard -- you vacation to private spots, but bring all your comforts of home with you! We will definitely be sailing with ECY again -- but this time, we will take their sailing classes and get certified to sail on our own without captain (bareboat) -- and we can bring the kids with us!
