Fantastic. Ralph and Leslie were gracious, knowledgeable hosts (not to mention skilled photographers and sailing teachers). Now & Zen itself is an impressive boat-- perfect for relaxation on the St. John's River or elsewhere. We had late afternoon dinner, caught the sunset, then had a perfect view of downtown Jax as the lights came on. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves relaxing on the water. Perfect way to celebrate a birthday.

This was the highlight of our anniversary trip this April. Being on St Johns river was like being on calm ocean seas. Ralph and Leslie are very hospitable and strike a good balance between hosting and leaving you to your own devices. Love that we could do actual sailing and not just motor around! It was a wonderful day for us!

Meta! really beyond our expectations with the crew and the boat itself. We had an absolute terrific time and felt so comfortable with Leslie and Ralph. It really was a very special time for us and hope to do it again. One of the highlights was my husband being able to sail in the open ocean---a first!
Highly recommend!

I wanted to do something special with my wife and we had discussed sailing in the past. I researched and found Now and Zen on the internet. I'm happy we decided on them because we had a great time. We felt very comfortable the entire time and it was so relaxing. The took us to this island with wild horses, deer and turkey that was a great picture opportunity. I'm happy we did this and I would highly suggest to anyone.

From the moment we step on to the sailboat we felt the peacefulness of what we were about to experience on our 4 hour sunset sail. We were received by Ralph and Leslie who made us feel right at home. The evening was amazing, exciting and adventurous yet, calm and relaxing. We cruised for hours and never wanted it to end. The boat is so comfortable and spacious. It was an evening we will never forget. Thank you Ralph and Leslie and we look forward to our next sail!
