You'll see the islands from the fresh and exciting perspective of Gulf and Bay waters, the dolphins with their perpetual smiles, swimming beside the boat, the manatees barely showing themselves and the sea otters playing around the docks are all just a part of our world. « less

Wanted to do something different with family, never went sailing before. Captain mick had our teens working the sails and gave us a basic sailing lesson, don't know if capt. Mick is just lazy and gets others to do the work or if he likes to teach others how to sail, maybe a little of both. But we had a... More

06/17/ 2014 - Capt. Mick was very personable. Loves to teach, had us sailing the boat by dolphins and manatee as soon as we left the dock. I would highly recomend this trip and captain to any one from young to old. Very thoughtfull and knowlegeble captain. Nothing like skipping across the waives silently with the wind in your hair!...

I am the leader of a high producing, extremely busy real estate team. We spent 4 days on Captiva Island unwinding and getting ready for 2014. We stayed at the Tween Waters Inn and had a wonderful experience. They suggested Capt. Mick and the New Moon for a private sailing trip. It was 3 hours of relaxing fun in the... More

Sail with Mick, bring a picnic and a bottle of something to enjoy. The boat has character, take the wheel and feel the rudder cut through the water. I was married on the new moon, it was really special. The group was just the right size. If you want more people in the wedding do it on the beach and... More

Thanks to Captain Mick, we had a wonderful time sailing Pine Island Sound. And we really did just that...with Mick's careful and patient instruction, we sailed the New Moon from beginning to end. Kids worked the lines and we even took her out and docked her. Dolphins came along for good measure! If you are looking for some electronic free,... More

I loved this trip! One of the best days we spent on Sanibel and Captiva was the day we spent on the New Moon. We saw dolphins eagles hawks and manatee! It was money well spent and time well spent. Aloha

We went sailing with Captain last week and had a great time. Capt Mick was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about sailing. The boat itself was in perfectly serviceable condition and I didn't have one concern about its safety or seaworthiness. The trip was long enough for everyone to get a chance to take the rudder and we... More

Loved Captain Mick, great sailor, he showed me how to sail the boat, park it. We sailed for 4 hours and stopped for lunch. Can't wait to sail again.
