We were a little nervous the kids (aged 4, 7, 9) would be bored while sailing for 2 hours but he was so comfortable with kids and had them working the entire time. They were running from bow to stern, having a great time learning about boating. We even got to hear boat stories when the wind died down

My husband and I took my daughter and her friend sailing. The captain let them steer the boat and put the sails up and down. It was especially nice that we had the boat to ourselves. It was a great experience and would do it again

Part of our 25th wedding celebration was capped off with a sunset sail. I contacted Cap't Jake several weeks before the event to ensure a reservation. He even procured a bottle of champagne for us at our request. Jake, is a congenial fellow, knowledgable and fun to sail with. Enjoy the bay and have a fun sail on Jake's 37'... More

We had a blast. Captain Jake couldn't have been a more relaxing companion on our two hour cruise. He was knowledgable, fun, and willing to let us explore the boat. It was hands down one of the best chartered sailing experiences we've ever had, and we've had many. If you have two hours to spare, this is the place to... More

We selected Jake and Miss Alexandra for our sailing experience - and were not disappointed. We chose a two day, one night, scuba diving, and (crew) learning trip. The weather was beautiful and winds were reasonable, so we were able to get some time under sail. We did a dive at Powers Island. We spent the night at the Elk... More

Great time relaxing, the two hours went by too quickly . We are always looking for something new to do on our girls getaway and this was perfect! Captain Jake was very knowledgable and seems to enjoy what he does. We will be back next year!

I needed a special treat to celebrate my husband's birthday. He has been sailing since 1968, but no longer has his boat. I found Two Brothers Sailing on the internet. What a find! Captain Jake was extremely knowledgeable. He did all the work but allowed us to be behind the wheel. Great winds, a very capable captain. What was the... More

Captain Jake was very laid back...just what we needed after being at a horse show all day. We brought our own picnic and beverages and our golden retriever. Would highly recommend it as a private excursion versus a bigger sail boat with strangers...

I found Two Brothers Sailing when I was browsing Trip Advisor for things to do while on my honeymoon. This was the last thing we did on our trip. We had a great evening for sailing! Within a few minutes, my husband got promoted to first mate and helping with the sails and I was driving the boat! My husband... More

If you enjoy the water, wind in your hair, sun on your face, you MUST take a trip with Captain Jake on his sail boat. The Grand Traverse Bay is gorgeous, all day, and evening is pure magic. The sunsets will take your breath away! The sail boat is nicely appointed and comfortable. We'll definitely make this a yearly thing... More
