Where do you even start to do justice to what an amazing week we had sailing with Ted on Oh Susannah. Ted is an amazing host and was a pleasure to meet and sail with. We went from being a group of four to a group of five, and can honestly say he became a friend throughout the week. We spent five days at sea and mixed the trip with nights at anchor and nights in marinas. Ted gave us lots of suggestions on where to visit and things to see, which really took the pressure off all the pre planning required in order to get the most from your holiday. All of the places we visited that he recommended where outstanding, and his knowledge of the area was excellent. The Amalfi coast is beautiful but having experienced it from both land and sea I can say with confidence that you can only fully appreciate its beauty when viewed from sea. I would challenge anyone to find a more personable and pleasant host than Ted and could not recommend him or Oh Susannah Charters enough. It’s a holiday with views, experiences, memories and amazing photos that will take some beating.
Our party of four, two couples, had the pleasure of sailing along the Amalfi with Ted at the helm. Before the trip, we nervously rolled the dice on deciding to stay on the sailing yacht over a hotel, and were anxiously awaiting to see how it would work out. Now, having completed our trip, we can emphatically say that it's the only way to experience the Amalfi, and couldn't have been happier with our decision.
Ted was the perfect host. Between his hospitality, knowledge of the area, and sailing expertise, Ted provided for the perfect experience.
As a commentary on the Amalif, we found the towns to be very crowded and touristy: lines for the buses and ferries, packed "beaches," etc. Having the flexibility to explore the towns (Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, etc.) for a few hours, and then escape back to the boat was unbelievably liberating. Additionally, Ted took us to restaurants, private islands, and beaches not available to the public. So if you're looking to experience the Amalfi with a feeling of exclusivity and privacy, I would highly recommend considering this option over a hotel.
Just back from a fantastic 4 day sailing trip with Ted onboard Oh Susannah ...great sailing, beautiful coastline and topped off by the incredible experience of having a sperm whale swim with the boat as we sailed to Amalfi. Ted is a brilliant, relaxed host and knows all the best anchorages, spots for swimming and snorkeling, and great places to eat. He looked after us so well .. thank you so much Ted, can't wait to come back next year with the children. Happy sailing x
Oh Susannah Charters gives you a taste of the REAL Amalfi coast! From the moment you board, Captain Ted is on hand to offer a bespoke itinerary suited to you. From secluded coves, tiny local restaurants, private islands, onboard lunches, snorkelling and sea swimming to the chic streets of Positano and Capri - there's something for everyone. Whether you want to sit back and relax whilst Ted does all the hard work, or, like me, you fancy getting stuck in to the sailing, the choice is yours.
I really can't recommend this way of experiencing the Amalfi enough. I'll be back in 2018 for sure.
Last August I was on "oh, Susanna" for 5 days with a friend and we had an amazing holiday!
The boat is very comfy and super well kept. Ted and Fabian are confident sailors and perfect hosts. They made us fall in love with the Amalfi coast, the landscape and the real "mozzarella di bufala".
We will definitely come back to enjoy again this corner of paradise!
La nostra vacanza su "oh, Susanna" è stata perfetta! La barca è molto ben mantenuta e Ted e Fabian son navigatori attenti e preparati. Ci siamo innamorate della Costiera e torneremo a visitare questo angolo di paradiso!
Ted is one of the nicest guys you could meet. He made are trip, taking us to all the best places, and he made sailing really fun. He's is a very relaxed but clearly experienced captain, and always made you feel at ease. We managed to get some pretty fun sailing in too.
Ted your a legend, look forward to next year capo!
My wife and I had the most amazing 5 days on board Oh Susannah. We met Ted, a charming and educated Englishman with a passion for sailing and a love of Italy, in Salerno and set sail along the Amalfi Coast visiting Amalfi, Positano, Triani, Gilli Islands, and more. The boat was more than spacious for the three of us, and the view and weather was incredible. It really was a once in a lifetime trip. From Aperol Spritz at sundowners, to fresh healthy Italian food on the deck, it couldn't have been more perfect. Ted is a very accomplished sailor and has had his boat in this stretch of Italy for a number of years, so knows the area well, as well as all the local restaurants, bars and hotspots (if you want that). Thank you Ted. We will be back. All the best M&V
