We chartered this trip to celebrate my Dad's 75th Birthday. He's been sailing since he was about 7 years old - mostly in Massachusetts and Canada. This was his first experience in Florida. Capt Mickey let Dad take the helm as soon as we left the marina. Dad had the time of life (and so did the rest of the... More

After a solid week at Disney, our extended family was thrilled to chill out on the beach for a few days. My sisters and I booked this cruise as a way to celebrate Mom's birthday and an opportunity to enjoy something different that's rather hard to come by up in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Captain Mickey took us out from about... More

I have sailed with Captain Mickey a number of times now - initially as a passenger but eventually taking lessons as helmsman\crew. If you want to sit back and enjoy then Mickey will gladly do all the work. However, once you grab the wheel you won't want to let go. You won't find a more qualified and patient teacher. The...

We called a week in advance of our vacation in Cocoa Beach, and Captain said he would check the weather and let me know which day was best for a sail. He picked a wonderful day, and even though the wind was sporadic, it was a great, relaxing trip. We had 3 hours, and he taught several of our teens... More

Our first taste of moving to Florida 3 years ago started with an afternoon sail with Capt. Mickey. My husband had always wanted to learn how to sail and Capt. Mickey gave him the opportunity to see if it was something he would really like to do. Our sails with Mickey are always enjoyable; to the point when friends and... More

My husband & I went out for a sunset cruise with Captain Mickey. The weather couldn't have been better, however the sunset was blocked by clouds. Didn't much matter to us. Very enjoyable, relaxing evening. We were even allowed to steer the boat and saw dolphins. What a thrill! Would definitely recommend this trip to friends, family, & anyone else.... More

Had a great sunset sail with Capt Mickey. What an enjoyable experience. The Capt lets you do as much or as little as you want and he is a totally pleasant addition to any sailing party. My husband steered the boat for about 95% of the trip. We brought our own snacks and wine (for those of us not "driving"... More

Thanks for creating a very special day for my Mom's birthday and Father's Day celebration! It is fun sailing and learning from Captain Mickey! There is no more tranquil place.

We sailed with Captain Mickey last Saturday afternoon, and had a wonderful time. His boat was just the right size for my husband, daughter, and I, and we spent a relaxing afternoon, sailing between the Eau Gallie and Pineda causeways. Captain Mickey was really nice, and let us steer his boat, or, relax where and when we wanted to. He... More

Captain Mickey really made our nieces' first sailing adventure amazing. Not only did he let the girls each take a turn at driving the boat, but he also took us on the river and let us find dolphins. When we opened up the sails and took to the water more, Mickey taught us about the wind, the sail and how... More
