My husband I went on the sunset cruise with Captain Tom. It was a great experience! On our sailboat cruise was one other couple, which was great, because it gave the cruise a more personal feel. We got to chat with Captain Tom the whole trip, and his super cute dog Lucky curled up in my lap and slept there... More

What a wonderful way to spend a summer morning. We had a beautiful sail in Green Bay on July 3rd. I highly recommend taking a sail with Capt. Tom and Lucky. My teenage children really enjoyed their time on the sailboat, and it made for some great family time. It was our second year on his boat, and when we... More

We vacation in Door County every year, and every year we go sailing. To be honest, for many years we sailed with Stiletto Catamarans, exclusively. But as our family grew, our group became too large for them to accommodate and they sub-contracted with Bella Cruises, and Captain Tom, and his first mate "Lucky" (a very small white dog) to take...

Saw advertisements for the larger competition but decided we would like a more intimate sail. With only six passengers, Captain Tom and his first mate, (a cute little pom/maltese mix) aboard we decided this would be the right cruise for us. Captain Tom got us off to a great start with introductions and some instruction and then we were off.... More

Had a great sail with Captain Tom and of course his first mate, "Lucky". Beautiful views. We were the only customers when we went on a Friday morning. Wind was fair, but the motor got us where we could see the coastline! This is a great area, Ephraim. Lots of activities and restaurants. Don't forget to stop at Wilson's for... More

Nice little ride with Captain Tom out to the island and back. Not much wind that day. Boat is tight for 6 adults. Bring some vino & cheese along for the ride (just don't forget your bottle opener and some little cups).

We travel to Door County at least every summer, and never miss a chance to go out with Captain Tom on Bella Cruises. This is the classic sailboat with the red sails that docks at the pier right across from Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor in Ephraim. The boat is sturdy and stable, just right for all ages, and the sunset... More

My boyfriend and I did the 10:30 sailboat tour with Bella Sailing and really enjoyed our time on the boat. It's a smaller boat and we were with three other people, and the captain. He was a little intimidating but altogether a very nice guy who really knows a lot about sailing and his passion for it is obvious. You... More
