We sailed in May (I'm awful for just now getting to this!) and had an absolutely wonderful time. Captain B.J. was very knowledgeable and was happy to talk to the family and answer any of the million questions we had for him. Drinks were provided and bringing a cooler with your own beverages/snacks is encouraged. My group included myself, my... More

We went on the Sunset Cruise July 23rd, 5:30-8:30pm. We didn't get on the boat and in the bay area until around 6:15. He kept us in the bay area to show us the dolphins, which wasn't great; the dolphins follow behind the shrimp boats and that's how they guarantee you will see them. The winds were not going at...

My fiance took me out at sunrise for a surprise outing where he proposed. Captain was great at playing along and I was completely shocked. I had no idea my fiance had been in contact with the captain prior to that day. Coffee was a great touch. He turned the boat perfect for the proposal and the captain was able... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Orange Beach over Memorial Day weekend. We signed up for a sunset cruise after reading the Sail the Daedalus pamphlet on display at our condo. This was truly the highlight of our trip! The weather was perfect, and the sunset was absolutely beautiful. There were other people on the cruise with us, so the... More

This was my first trip on a sailboat and it was a wonderful experience. Captain BJ and McKenzie were great! They made my surprise engagement the most memorable and amazing that it could have been. We have an awesome story and great pictures to remember the day forever!

It was absolutely beautiful, breath-taking, once in a lifetime, what other descpriptors can I add? We had 17 cousins & spouses - we'll never forget it! The captain and his first mate were wonderful hosts and treated us like family. We WILL be repeating this adventure!

I have been visiting the Gulf Shores area for fifty years and never took the opportunity to view this beautiful place from a sailboat. My loss !!!
