This is really a perfect way to spend a day on the water. Really friendly staff and our captain took us all over the inner bay and we went to the nearby islands and we where lucky to be sailing by the wind for most if our trip. The boat could do with a little update, but not really important... More

Dear cschjorr, Thank you for taking the time to give us your input. Your feedback is very important to us. The main reason for the "pre-packaged" Cesar salad, potato salad or pasta salad is solely due to Health Department regulations. In 12 years of providing island BBQs, most people are there for the meat. We use only the freshest, top... 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. This will definitely be on our itinerary... More

We rented a pontoon boat with a captain for an ash scattering at sea. Captain Mark was perfect. Very friendly and considerate.He took us out to sea and let us have our moment. Afterwards he took us to a little island/sand bar that the kids fully enjoyed.

Windsong Day Charters is a fabulous place to rent a pontoon boat. They are extremely knowledgable and are conserned with both your safety as well as pegging your fun-meter in the red zone! They make it extremely easy to be underway, as well as returning to the dock. They are as pleasant as they can be, and I return every... More

We spent a week in Tarpon Springs and kept hearing the same thing - there is clear, turquoise water out on the north end of Anclote Key. But we couldn't find a tour boat to take us out there that would let us stay more than a half hour. I did some research and called Windsong - they were so... More

Called the night before on admitted short notice to see if we could book a pontoon boot for a full day. They were fairly booked but managed to work us into 21 ft 'It's my Ponty'.

Dear JackTheDog1, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. People sometimes store their belongings under the helm and occasionally wires will get pulled loose when they yank their stuff out at the end of the day. That was indeed the case with your stereo.

I don't know what exactly was the problem that Wendy had with my brother his wife and myself but we were denied service. She said it was because I was overweight for the single boat which I was fine with that but then she denied service of any kind to myself my brother and his wife.

Captain Wendy handled our booking made from the UK effortlessly and we booked everything we needed. Captain Dave took us out on the boat from 10.30 to 3.30 (but you can have longer), with a nice slow motor along the inter coastal and then out to sea. We arrived at a sand bar after about 1.5hrs where a cabana, cooler,... More

We rented a 20' Pontoon with cover for a trip out to the sandbar, Anclote Island, and fishing. Windsong took a reservation with no difficulty, and also had good, reasonably rented fishing equipment. Since they are right at the end of the channel, get to your boat early for the brief orienteering, and the slow ride out of the channel.... More
