The staff at Windsong Charters were very cordial and friendly. We came during the off season in May, so we had our pick of any kayak. My wife & I changed to a three person kayak, from the tandem one we had reserved, base on the recommendation of the staff, so we would have more room for our cooler. The... More

Hello WestCoastRich, Thanks for taking the time to write about your paddling experience. Yes, it could take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes based on your paddle speed, if there is a heavy incoming or outgoing tide, wind direction and wind speed. We're glad you had a good time and hope to "sea" you again soon. Happy Boating, Capt. Wendy,... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time at New Port Richey thanks to the Windsong staff. The staffs are very helpful in teaching us how to navigate a boat (we are first time boaters!) and pointing us to fun attractions. We scheduled an overnight boat rental and planned to camp at the Anclote beach. However, the weather got really... More

The boat was wet with dew and everything was dirty. had to wipe it down before we could sit down. a porta potty was left on the boat, we didn't order one and it stunk.. The... More

Hello Al H, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us.

My wife and I chartered a sailboat for a full day sail with Windsong Sailing Charters. The staff were awesome. Reservations were simple and the price was extremely affordable to have the entire boat to ourselves. We sailed aboard the Windy Day, a nice Elite 32 foot sailboat. The boat was well maintained and very confortable. The sailing was amazing... More

Our family party of 10 hired the 2 sail boats for the day and had a fantastic time with 2 very professional and knowledgeable skippers. They catered for all our demands for time on a beach, swimming and fishing. Travelling under sail was relaxing and thrilling and seeing dolphins was an added bonus.
