“Amazing Sailing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

My husband and I absolutely loved our 4 hour sailing trip with Captain Ryan. We saw a lot of dolphins, stingrays and huge jellyfish. Captin Ryan was great! This was definitely our favorite part of our Orange Beach trip. We will definitely take another trip with Captain Ryan the next time we are there.

“Kelly H”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We had a great time on the 4 hour cruise. The wind was steady that day and we decided to split our time between the gulf and the back bay. Probably the best aspects of Captain Ryan's cruises are the flexibility provided in where we ventured and his willingness to answer with great detail our many questions about the surrounding area and sailing in general. We saw several dolphins as we headed into the pass leading to the gulf. I expect we will be in touch with Captain Ryan about sailing again in the future.

“Let's do it again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

we absolutely loved our sunset cruise! the weather was a bit chilly but we just war jackets and it was beautiful! Ryan was an excellent captain. He was a great conversationalist, and knew when to step back and give me and my husband of 25 years that very day, some quiet time. And, we saw dolphins! Isn't that good luck or something? We will visit Ryan again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We had a very enjoyable 2-hour sail in the gulf. It was very beautiful, but unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins.

Thanks for sailing with us. I am glad you had a good time, Sorry about the Dolphins, they are wild animals and sometimes are hard to find or see during certain conditions.
