My wife and I recently took 2 friends for a sunset cruise with Captain's Vinny and Jimmy. While the service is under new ownership . . . the service and hospitality still remains fantastic. New owner Rob Dawes has kept old customers happy with the same attention to detail that Captain Marlena insisted on. I will be calling on them... More

Great sail and Captain Eric made the sail even more special. Kids really loved it. We planned for a 2 hour sail and had so much fun we extended it to a 3 hour sail.

Perfect ending to a wonderful vacation on a 47 ft sail boat in mint condition. Pure luxury. Highly recommend the private, chartered sail with Rob and Marlena.

My family and I enjoyed a beautiful sail for 3 days, starting off at Naples stopping at Sanabel, then Fort Myers before returning to Naples. My whole family had lots of chances to take the helm, and we all loved it! Marlena was the perfect host, and made us all feel very at home on the beautiful boat (Island Dreams.)... More

Six of us took a three hour sail with Marlena. She was so much fun . The sail was delightful and will provide us with warm memories for years to come. Malena has just sold the business but she assured us that the new owners will also be providing memorable cruises. Next time we are with friends looking for a... More

I booked a 3 hour cruise with Marlena with the intention of proposing to my then girlfriend. Marlena was awesome. She took us out and gave us some information about the surrounding area as we headed to the Gulf. We were able to bring some wine with us (fridge and bathroom on board big plus!). Ahead of time I asked... More

On a recent trip to Naples, my husband and I went on a two hour sail with Marlena. We chose to go during the morning with the hopes of seeing some dolphins and other wild life. Marlena was the perfect captain and tour guide. She knows the waters and surrounding area exceptionally well, and gave us a lot of interesting... More

If you're looking for a first-rate sailing experience in the Naples, FL area, "Island Sailing" is just the ticket. Without being over the top, every detail and customer need is taken care of by the Captain. The tone of the cruise is up the the customer - everything from a leisurely cruise to a sailing lesson and everything in between.... More

My husband and I recently took a wonderful sailing trip from Naples, Florida, to Key West with Capt. Marlena Brackebusch of Island Sailing. The boat was beautiful, and the ocean voyage was magical. We had a couple of rough spots during the trip, but Captain Marlena kept us on track with her calm attitude and years of experience as not... More

Recently, my wife and I decided to celebrate her birthday and our anniversary with a day of sailing on the Gulf of Mexico. We had been in contact with Captain Marlena last year, but due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, we had to cancel. However, I had been in constant contact with the dear captain, and that was our good... More
