Wind Rave Reviews

We had such a beautiful sail with Captain Loren. He made a 2 hour sail with twin 3 year olds easy, they were so thrilled to help him steer. We loved having the boat to ourselves. From booking the trip to the actual sail, everything was easy and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thank you! I’d highly recommend and will do this again our next visit.

We had an incredible time with Captain Lauren. The boat accommodated our family of six and was so much better than a crowded ship. Captain was personable and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this company
