Thanks for the wonderful morning we had with you on the morning of June 28th. It was cold and cloudy, but we enjoyed the company and relaxation and learning a little bit about sailing.

Our experience on the Tall Ship Thane was wonderful. We sailed around the inner and outer Victoria harbour on a warm, sunny afternoon. Rob and Pete were excellent hosts, teaching willing passengers how to hoist and lower the sails. They are both very knowledgeable and were able to answer our questions about sailing, the ocean and shoreline as well as... More

My wife and I were looking for something to do besides the typical touristy things, and I stumbled upon 3-hour Sail on the web. We've never sailed before, and thought this would be a fun thing to do, and the price was very reasonable - $69 for 3 hours to learn how to sail! We had a wonderful time with... More

My wife and I sailed with Rob and Pete for the three hour sail on the Thane and had a very enjoyable time. It was a bit cool out on the water, but we were provided with plenty of warm clothing to wear. My wife felt that Abby, the ship's dog, was one of the high points of the trip.

My wife and I just did the 3-hour tour and thoroughly enjoyed the sailing, it was the highlight of our trip to Victoria. Rob and Pete were friendly hosts and made you feel welcome and had plenty of stories to share. We intend to sail again on the tall ship Thane on our next visit to Victoria.

Wanting something a little different for our anniversary this year, my husband and I decided to give sailing a try. We could not have been happier with not only the boat and sailing adventure itself, but also with Sue and Len - who were friendly, informative, and maintained excellent communication throughout the booking process. We were able to bring a... More

Went on the three hour sail and it was great! Len and Sue are very interesting and have a wealth of knowledge to share if you just ask. We took our 10 year old son who is fish obsessed and they even let him bring his rod and try his hand off the boat. Len even lent him his lure... More
