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

This is our second time sailing with Chester. There were six ladies spending the time at Port A for a Ladies weekend. This time we had Chester make dinner for us. What a bargain! I'm telling you - the shrimp were gigantic. I can eat a lot of shrimp - this is the first time I left a table with... More

This was awesome. I took my wife and three kids on Chester's Stray Cat and we had a blast. When we first arrived for the start of the sailing trip there was thunder and lightning. We were a little tentative about going on the water but Chester promised us that the clouds would pass if we didn't mind a little... More

Let's just say Chester has the patience of GOD! We had a few incidents and he never got upset. Our dog jumped off the boat while we were sailing! He went back and got her and laughed at her braveness! The food was awesome and it was just an overall wonderful experience! We will be back next year!

I was looking for a different experience for my great nieces, 81 yr old mom & niece to see dolphins & for their first sailing experience. Capt. Chester is great. I will do the 8 hr trip next time. Plenty of snacks & water, cold drinks. I recommend this adventure.
