We booked our boat and the day of the sail, we called to confirm and Captain Robert told us to call the captain who was taking us (I think he hires out or brokers other boats). So we called him and he said his boat has been in repairs for 3 weeks. He proceeded to tell us that Captain Robert... More

We were set to charter the boat for an afternoon. The weather changed and became unsafe for sailing, so WE had to call and tenatively reschedule. The day we were supposed to go WE had to call and ask if we could go that day. We were told no. Which is fine. We didn't want to be out in the... More

Great cruise tonight with Captain Vasily - trip is exactly as advertised and very beautiful. The Captain has a great personality and the hammock up front is the location of choice.

Three couples sailed with Captain Vasily on a beautiful day. Our late afternoon boat ride was the perfect time to have wine and cheese (we brought) and enjoy the wonderful breezes and pretty shoreline. We were also lucky to be entertained by some dolphins and manatees swimming near us.

Captain, Vasily, was very capable, friendly and helpful. For our evening sail, we got 3 couples together, some champagne, some snacks, and Vasily picked us up right on time. We cruised up to Ca d' Zan and then across Sarasota Bay to Long Boat Key. We sailed back across the bay with a beautiful Sun setting along with us. I... More

Captain Vasily was very helpful and accommodating in our planning of the sail, and when it ended up being just two of us on the sail, he took us out anyway. Our time on the water included a gorgeous island sunset, and a great view of the Sarasota lights on the way back. Relaxing and comfortable, the Delphinus was a... More

What a great, relaxing cruise with Captain Vasily on his catamaran. Safety and comfort of his passengers was first and foremost of concern. Making sure our grandsons, 9 and 4, had their lifevests on right away. He was knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating. The boat felt secure and was enjoyed by the 6 of us. I cannot wait until we can... More

We had a relaxing and beautiful 2 hour sail with Captain Vasily. He is a gracious host and the catamaran is very large with sunny and shady seating areas. There is also a bathroom on board which is quite convenient. We were 6 people including 3 children as young as 4 yrs old. There was another family of 6 on-board... More

Capt. Vasily sailed our 6-person group northward in Sarasota Bay, all the way up to the Ringling Ca d'Zan mansion. We hung out on the bow, up by the trampoline, on which our 2 nieces had fun, looking into the water. We enjoyed sailing past all of the lovely waterfront mansions on the bay. We then sailed westward, to Longboat... More
