We then sailed slowly back. Each cruise is custom tailored to what you want to see, one of the highlights for us was seeing the Ospreys. Al... More

This was our second tour with Capt Al & Jo-Ann & Gone with the Wind :) It was relaxing, informative & I was able to get some amazing photos of osprey, eagles & other birds & the scenery was breath-taking! Sadly, we were unable to sail, but were just as happy to motor around the lake. Thank you for a... More

The scenery was breath taking and the cruise was so relaxing We had no wind that day so the motor was what Al used and that ended up being just fine. If or... More

Captain Al and Jo were very interesting and they seem to know what they are doing. You can see that they love what they do. It was ashamed that it wasn't windy enough to... More

What a great way to experience the lake, we had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing and Jo was a lovely hostess! Captain Al knows his business and almost has me sold on the idea of my husband purchasing a sailboat :-) We begged to swim off the boat and while it was discouraged, they allowed us the luxury...

Captain Al and Jo's sailing experiences were shared thru many of their captivating stories and a ton of fun to top it off. Great day, great weather and even greater company!!! Would recommend them to... More

I booked this cruise as part of a 23rd anniversary surprise for my husband. Unfortunately the weather was not favourable and Al informed us that it likely would not be an enjoyable cruise. He was flexible in having us rebook for the next day. We were so glad because both my husband and I would have been very disappointed because... More
