Captain B.J. makes sailing on his boat, The Daedalus, a terrific experience. He will customize about any type of excursion you can think of. We took the three hour sunset cruise and had a wonderful evening. He and his first mate, John are very knowledgeable sailors and fun to talk to. If you visit Orange Beach, Sail The Daedalus is...

My wife booked a Charter for 9am Thursday morning....she spoke to him on the phone multiple times ...he kept saying he was real busy earlier in the week ...so we booked later in the week....Thursday morning comes and we are on our way out the door...

My husband and I booked a cruise for shelling and dolphin watching with the captain. He responded with a text and all of the information. We arrived at the dock a little early even though it was quite hot and humid that afternoon. He did not show up and after calling him twice I finally contacted him. He said that... More

I wish I could say this was an all around good experience because I try to not be that person however I can't. During the cruise BJ and Brandon were both very nice and it was an enjoyable time. However while BJ was taking pictures he dropped my phone in the ocean. A complete accident and I understand that they... More

We booked this sunset cruise ($50 per person) and it was not worth it. BJ and Brandon were great but we could see why this season has been a slow one for them. Who pays $50 for a cruise and has to sit on coolers, keep getting up when someone wants a drink, and distributes drinks to other guests or... More

I am so happy we booked a cruise aboard the Daedalus! It was a wonderful trip. The sail boat was beautiful with a rich history! Once the sails were raised and the boat engine was cut - there was nothing but the calming sound of the boat slicing through the water. Captain BJ was very welcoming and informative! Our first...

We had a group of 7 women and went on the moonlight cruise. BJ and Brandon were exceptional! They catered to our every need. The cruise was outstanding! Sailing with the lights in the background while looking at stars was awesome. BJ told wonderful stories and Brandon even showed one of us how to tie knots. If you have never... More

This was certainly a highlight for our trip, BJ and Ace were OUTSTANDING!!! Great time sailing on the Daedalus, well worth the money and look forward to another one of BJ's trips when we return.

Such a great time with a large group of friends! Captain BJ and Ace were amazing hosts. Learned so much about the area and sailing such a large vessel. Would do this again as long as we go on the Daedalus!!!
