We had a great short sail into the bay with the nicest young couple who have made their lives part of the water. Their southern hospitality was apparent and the craftsmanship of the boat by the captain was superb. Thanks

We originally had booked with another company and their crew had a family emergency and cancelled. They recommended Captain Andy and we booked with him. We were going to do a sunset cruise, but the weather had other ideas with a storm that night. Captain Andy suggested a morning cruise the next day. What a great suggestion! From the time... More

Decided to try a sunset sail for our 25 anniversary. Was not disappointed. In fact it far exceeded our expectations. The gulf was very rough so we stayed in the bay and got a breathtaking view of the sunset plus a few dolphins came by to say "hello". Captain Andi and first mate Manny were great. And a "thank you"... More

Got an amazing time sailing around the beautiful harbor. The best pictures, dolphins watching, beach break and the life guitar songs on board of the comfortable sail boat. Friendly crew and the big black fat dog around;) highly recommended for all the ages and characters. Thank you very much captain Andy for the great surves.

Be careful about booking with this company. They make promises they don't keep. Booked a trip online for a private sail on 11/12/14. When we arrived at the appointed time there was no one there. After waiting 30 minutes, we called the phone number we had for Captain Andy Stemki. He said he never got the reservation but would try... More

Andy was a phenomenal captain, reliable and had some great and amusing stories to share. Don't be afraid to ask him questions on sailing, he will definitely have the answers for you! Just show up, bring a bottle of champagne and enjoy the cruise and views.

Captain Andy is a good guy, with a very comfortable, safe cruiser. We had a great time out in the gulf and over to crab island. Felt safe, and at ease the entire time. Will definitely sail with Captain Andy and the Emerald Lady again!!

This was one of the best things about our trip to Destin. We took a sunset cruise in June and it was fantastic! There were 4 of us and we loved that it was private and the captain and first mate were very nice and it was interesting to get to talk to them. The sandwiches they provided topped off... More

We recently vacationed in Destin. One of the greatest highlights of our trip was this sailboat excursion. Caption Andy made it a fantastic experience for our family. We have 3 children, 13, 12 and 10 and we had not done anything like this before. We saw dolphins up close which was so great. We enjoyed getting to know Andy who... More

We are long time visitors to the 30A/Seagrove area. We enjoy that so much that we rarely make it to Destin. A short sailing trip with Captain Andy Stempki over the Thanksgiving break was just what we needed to lure us over to the harbor, and we're glad we did. There was practically no wind but the sails were still... More
