“What Great Sail!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

My wife and I took a sunset cruise with Captain Marlena and it was truly an experience we both will remember forever. Captain Marlena is an excellent host and could not have possibly made us feel more comfortable. If you are looking to do something different while in Naples take a cruise with Captain Marlena - you will not regret it!

“The Highlight of our Naples vacation”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Our group of four sailed with Captain Marlena on a sunset cruise of Naples Bay on Island Dreams back on March 3rd, and it really was the highlight of our trip to Naples. Captain Marlena was very accommodating (part of our group was late to arrive), and through her skilled seamanship and warm personality she imparted to us her love of the sea and sailing, and made our cruise that much more enjoyable.
We had such a wonderful time, we've already contacted Captain Marlena so she can arrange a cruise for the rest of the family when we come back to visit in October.
Thanks Marlena, looking forward to joining you again!

“Beautiful sailing!”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

My son and I took a gorgeous morning sail on "Island Dreams" with Captain Doug. It was beautifully informative as well as thrilling! Next time we want to take the one-day sail to Marco; and after that.....perhaps Key West! Thanks to Captain Marlena, and especially Capt. Doug for a brilliant experience!

“Best Charter Ever!!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We are four recently retired wannabe sailors. We chartered "Knot on Call" and Captain Doug for a two day charter from Naples City Dock to Sanibel Island and back. Best idea we ever had. Feel like we can get back to our own sailboats with much more confidence and sharpened sailing skills. Thanks to both Captain Marlena of Island Sailing and Captain Doug for their ability to make this such an enjoyable adventure from start to finish! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

“Sail of a Lifetime”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Elena I / NJ

From the minute I spoke with Island Sailing about setting up our half-day private sail I knew we were in good hands. We booked a half-day private sailboat cruise out of Naples, FL. It was nothing short of spectacular. Marlena was very informative and a joy to have as our captain. We had 3 couples and had an awesome time sailing and taking in views of some pretty amazing mansions, bald eagles, dolphins etc. I would highly recommend booking Marlena and Island Sailing for a memorable excursion.
