This was the best part of my vacation! I felt very comfortable doing this solo and was able to meet an outstanding couple on the cruise. Captain Dan, you are one of the funniest people I've ever met. I will definitely be back again to do this sailing trip!

The very small group of only 6 passengers plus Captain Dan and his wife made for a great sailing experience! Beautiful boat, or shall I say "sloop," and Dan was happy to explain the mechanics of how it worked. They provided great conversation when we wanted it but also privacy at the bow--just ask! Definitely plan to take other friends... More

This was our third time back to Sanibel, FL to celebrate our anniversary and we have been fortunate to do the half-day sail with Captain Dan each trip! Like others have said, the boat is in wonderful condition and Captain Dan is fun and engaging. Initially, it looked like it might be a bit rainy, but the sun came out... More

We had a very nice time on our sailing trip. The boat is very clean and in excellent condition. Captain Dan and his "First Mate" are friendly, knowledgable and provide good conversation as well as explaining many of the intricacies of sailing. The sunset was glorious as it was a good day for sailing. The only downside was that we... More

We had a great time when we sailed with Captain Dan (we did the 1/2 day sail) during our holiday on Sanibel Island. Dan keeps "The Star of Orion" in pristine condition and this coupled with his expertise and charm meant we were very happy sailors! We plan to sail again with Caaptain Dan when we return next year. We... More

My husband and I had a fantastic time on the Sunset Sail! The boat is outstanding (also comfortable) -- and there are multiple places for viewing. Captain Dan and his wife Dianne are the nicest people. We can't say enough good things about them and the great experience. We highly recommend the Magic Wind!

My girlfirend (now fiancee) and I took a sunset sail this past weekend and it was absolutley beautiful. We got engaged right at sunset and Capt. Dan grabbed my phone and snapped some great photos without us knowing, we will have those memories for many years to come. It was a perfect night and it was great to meet Capt.... More

Had an Outstanding sail today! The boat is the cleanest in the fleet, Captain Dan is knowledgeable and humorous he knows the area via boat and ensured that the trip was perfect. I recommend his excursion 100%. I will Definitely be back to sail again with him!!

My wife and I have done this excursion about five times and had wonderful outing each time. Captain Dan and wife Dianne provide for an experience that makes you genuinely feel like you have been long time friends with them and they are happy to share the Star of Orion with you. We have done the cruise by ourselves, with... More

We had a great time sailing with Dan and his first mate . The winds were 20 knots and the boat sailed like a dream. Captain Dan even let me take the helm. We would recommend this trip to anyone who likes to sail .
