Do not waste your time on the Pirate ship. We had a blast with our family and Chester and his wife made us feel at home on their boat! I will never go to Port A again unless I book an adventure with Captain Chester. Great time!!! We even envited them for dinner afterwards. :) Brian W.

We loved sailing... We could have just sailed all day and had a blast, but the stop at the island gave us a chance to kayak and stand-up paddle board, both of which my kids loved. It was our first time on a catamaran. Our kids want to buy a boat now. Chester and Kristen were awesome hosts. We would... More

Amazing. Loved it. Genuinely felt like we'd been away for a week after a morning on the Cat. The crew strike a perfect balance between getting to know you and entertaining you and leaving you to have some time on your own and feeling like the boat is yours. Would recommend without hesitation. Would go back in a heartbeat. And... More

My family had a great time sailing with Captain Chester & First Mate Kristen. They both go out of their way to make you comfortable and feel at home on their boat. Taking a dingy ride to comb for sea shells was one of my 6 yr old son's favorite memories from this Memorial Weekend trip to Port A. We... More

What a great day we had with Captain Chet and First Mate Kristen aboard the Stray Cat, a catamaran sailboat with an auxiliary outboard and a trailing dinghy. Not only is the boat itself stable and comfortable, with a complete cabin (including full bathroom), but the Captain and his wife are wonderful hosts. On our trip, they sang, told us... More

Capt. Ruder and Catamaran Mate Kristen gave us an. "Off the Hook " adventure. Adult dolphins galore, some with pups! We saw plenty of brown and white pelicans and other birds, plus we got educated on some of the sights; such as an awesome lighthouse and shipwreck. Capt. Chester and Kristen (sp?) filled us in on the dolphins behaviors! So... More

We went to Port A on the July 4th weekend of 2012, but never had a chance to write a review. I highly recommend this activity. The captain took great care of us and became a part of our family. We had 6 adults and one child with us. My parents, my brothers with his girlfriend, my youngest brother, and... More
