We felt right at home with Captain Dan! As soon as we stepped foot on the boat, it felt like we had known him for years. What a fabulous way to see Fort Myers Beach and the Sanibel Lighthouse! The dolphins swam right up next to the boat. We saw more dolphins during our sailing than the people we knew... More

We went out for the morning sail yesterday, and although the wind could have blown a lot more, we had a great time. It's a lovely well-maintained boat -- sparkling, actually. Captain Dan is an engaging guy with lots of stories and a good eye for the wildlife to be seen. And, a very capable captain. Can't imagine how it... More

Gorgeous boat, great Captain, boy does he have it easy, full power main and autopilot! Out of slip to gulf and under full sail power in 20 minutes! Fabulous cruise along Ft Myers beach, hit lucky, saw dolphin, sea turtles and even a shark! Boat sails like dream, cockpit area fully cushioned, comfy, and totally canopied for shade. Loved every...

I have visited the beaches of Sanibel and Ft. Myers but never enjoyed them from a sea point of view. Two of my friends and I took an opportunity to book a 2 1/2 hour sail from Salty Sam's Marina in Ft. Myers Beach and were delighted with Captain Dan and his fully automated 38' sloop. We brought snacks, took... More

We had a great time. Capt Dan and Diane were wonderful ,very friendly and accomodating. My wife was very scared of the water. It took a long time to convince her to go sailing. I grew up on the sea so was looking forward to it. When I got her on Dan and Diane made her feel so comfortable and... More

Capt Dan and his wife Diane were Top notch. I booked a private 4hr cruise for the family to take my dearly departed father on one last sailing trip. Capt Dan is an experienced and knowledgeable sailor who knew the exact best spot to return dad to the sea. For what we needed to do Diane and the Captain were... More

We had an amazing time sailing with captain Dan. He was so personable and just a lot of fun to be with. The sailing itself was so peaceful and relaxing. It was just my husband and I on the boat for our anniversary, and I can't imagine doing anything better than this!! I can't wait to go back next year.... More

Thanks again, Dan for a whopper of a trip. We will continue to charter with you as we have done year after year for the luxury of being who we are, silly and a tad on the "escalator going down" side. See you again, soon, and the adventure boat too! You are THE BEST!

Weather was great and sailing was so enjoyable. This must be 6 or 7 times we have sailed with Dan and each time is more fun. Always consider it good luck if we can get a half day sail with him. Nice people sometimes to share the fun with too. Dan always has funny stories. He is the best Capt... More
