      Fabulous service!!
      We were booked for a boat tour with Captain Mike and unfortunately Mike had to have surgery and thus our tour was cancelled. These things cannot be helped and we totally understand the situation. Captain Mike went to a huge amount of trouble to refund our deposit. (It was troublesome due to the length of time since our original payment & also the bank system in Australia is different to Europe ). We really appreciated the effort he went to (even though the poor man had just been through surgery) to refund our deposit!! Highly recommend booking this tour as it would’ve been absolutely fabulous!!! Thanks Captain Mike for your professionalism, persistence and also keeping us updated with what was happening!!! If we get to this gorgeous part of the world again we would book this boat tour for sure!!! Thanks Captain Mike and we hope you are recovering well!!

      Giornata in barca a vela bellissima
      What an experience! The day starts off with Captain Mike's gracious welcome onboard the Calmacuor. He is capable and informed, providing his guests the utmost professionalism. The coast in and around Lavagna has lots to offer. Gorgeous waters. Snorkelling. Classic Italian scenery. Even dolphins if you are lucky. The menu and food are all prepared by Mike himself and are just delicous. We highly recommend this tour. The value for money cannot be beat. We will be back ! Thank you for the memories

      Fantastic day
      My partner pre-booked this sailing trip before we arrived as a romantic day out for us both. Mike was very informative before the trip and met us at the train station. It was a short walk to the harbour he introduced us to the boat and gave a safety briefing. The weather wasn’t great so we were sceptical, however we are so glad we went as it was just such a fantastic day. Mikes knowledge of the area and sailing capabilities made the trip perfect. We visited the famous Portofino. Had an absolutely gorgeous lunch with fruits that I’ve never tasted such succulent juices from before, and amazing focaccia bread. My partner took a dip in the ocean which was a tad cold due to the weather. We were dosed up with some Prosecco and beer which is always a pro. The views were amazing even with some stormy black cloud above, and fortunately we got some sailing in on the way back with some nice wind which just made it even better. Mike is such a lovely genuine person we are lucky to have met him.

      Very special sailing
      Strongly recommend using Mike for sailing around the Coast. We had an excellent half-day, Mike was a great (and very safe) skipper, and the food and drink were first class. A don’t-miss opportunity.

      Great communication
      My family and I had scheduled a day sailing with Mike. He was quick to respond and confirm our sail date. As the day approached the weather changed. He kept me abreast of the current situation as he continued to follow numerous weather reports. I was made to feel safety was a priority. We appreciated his honesty and concern. We will definitely rebook the next time we are in the Portofino area.

      Perfect Day at Sea
      Sailing with Mike is an absolute must-do in Liguria! My husband and I had been on the go touring the area and needed a relaxing day; and Set Sail Tours was perfect for us. It was definitely one of the most relaxing days we have ever spent at sea. Mike served a beautiful spread of food (the onion focaccia is unbelievable), and drinks flowed all day. We enjoyed it so much that we booked another day. Thank you Mike for a fabulous day on the Mediterranean!

      A super day on the sea.
      We had a great day on the boat with Mike. We started the journey with fresh croissant with hidden strawberries. We saw all the villages from Lavagna to Portofino. We jump into the cool Mediterranean see and get cool. All the meals, and fresh fruits were also great. Special thanks to our host, Mike for his hospitality and his nice chat. We highly recommend his host.

      Amazing sailing day in Portofino
      My friend and I had a wonderful time sailing with Mike! He really thinks about every detail and takes care of his hosts. It was an amazing experience and we even got to see dolphins! I would definitely go sail with him again!

      Great Experience out on the sea by the Ligurian coast!
      Absolutely recommend it! My girlfriend, her parents and I went on the sunset cruise. Great tour and we enjoyed Michael’s company. We were lucky enough to spot a big group of dolphins and before we knew it they were all around the boat. Beautiful view of Portofino from the sea.

      A great day at sea with a beautiful sailing ship!
      We were two couples who wanted to see the Ligurian coast from the sea and decided to book captain Mike and his beautiful sailing ship for a day on the sea. Some of us had never been sailing before, and we were all looking for a unique, once in a lifetime experince. The ship sailed smoothly, and we loved to watch the beauty of the sails surrounded by the Mediterranean sea and the pictoresque Italian villages. Mike taught us about sailing, and we were served a tasty Italian lunch and cold beverages. After a while, we stopped for swimming on a bay with authentic Italian athmosphere and peaceful and beautiful scenery. We felt safe onboard with him as a captain. At the same time we felt relaxed as his guests and talking to him was both interesting and rewarding. After spending a day with him, we would love to sail with him again.

      Portofino vista by yacht
      What a perfect way to view the beautiful coast from Lavanga to San Fruttuoso Monastery. Mike had the galley producing croissants and fruit platters as we set course diverting to see a dolphin pod which played with our bow wave. We took turns sailing this beautifully kept yacht and stopped for a magnificent lunch on board and a swim. A must for a group for that memorable day. Thanks from Mel and Russ NZ

      Wonderful Day Out in the Italian Riviera
      I came for a day trip while in holiday with my family in Santa Margherita. Lavagna is an easy train ride from there. Mike was a wonderful host. We the best day out on his boat. Lunch and drink were fantastic. He has great knowledge of the area as we sailed up the coast. Swimming off the back of the boat was a highlight. Thanks again Mike!

      Great day at sea
      We had a great day out with set sail tours. Mike the captain was lovely. Great food served throughout the day (crossaints, fruit platter, cold cuts and delicious focaccia.) had a couple of beers/ spritzes whilst sailing on the beautiful Ligurian sea. Enjoyed a dip in the sea and a snorkel near portofino. Very relaxing. Thoroughly recommend.

      An absolute must if you're visiting The Italian Liguria region
      Mike Stegner makes sailing around this stunning region an amazing experience not to be missed. A warm, knowledgeable and experienced captain, Mike will ensure that a day out on the water will be a truly memorable adventure. He provided us with copious delicious food, plenty of drink and the opportunity to individualise our trip according to our preferences. We swam, saw dolphins, gained sailing knowledge and above all, engaged in some wonderful discussion about the region and his passion for adventure. We would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone contemplating a boating charter. It is well suited to couples, individuals or a family group.

    My family and I (kids 7 and 10) had a wonderful time with Michael. He is such an amazing host. The food and drinks were delicious and plentiful. He made us and our kids feel very comfortable and safe the entire trip. It felt like we were on a good friends boat. You can tell he is very passionate about what he does and that he truly cares about his guests. We can't say enough good things about Michael and this experience. We had such a good time we went two days in a row. We are looking forward to coming back and doing this again one day soon. This made me want to buy a boat! We 100% recommend this trip to anyone even remotely considering it. Thank you Michael for the memories!

    We had some difficulties with our travels this trip and our mother is older and it is hard for her to get around. Michael was patient and caring. Michael was very gracious when he found out we were coming from Genoa and not Portifino due to an itinerary change. He was in contact with us and we moved up our trip to make sure we had enough time and got back to the ship on time. The food he had for us was simple yet delicious and was one of my favorite meals on our trip. We also had wine and approl spritzs. We were lucky that there was beautiful weather and the sailing trip was perfect and relaxing! We also had a nice swim. He was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this if you want a nice day on the water that is intimate and relaxing! Thank you, Michael!

    Our experience with Set Sail on the Mediterranean was nothing short of phenomenal. Captain Mike made the journey incredibly enjoyable, effortlessly combining his extensive sailing knowledge with a warm and charismatic personality. The lunch served on board was delicious and well-curated, complementing the scenic beauty around us. Mike was more than accommodating in every aspect, ensuring that we had a smooth and memorable trip from start to finish. Highly recommend!

    What a fantastic way to spend a day! This has to be one of the best day trips I have been on in Italy - and I have done many... We cruised along the Liguria coast to find a beautiful small bay where we dropped the anchor and settled in for a few hours of relaxation and fun. The skipper, Mike, is a great guy with fantastic knowledge of the area and the sea. He makes you feel very welcome and will adapt to the mood of the passengers providing chilled vibes or enthusiastically sharing stories of the sea. The lunch was perfect with options for everyone and Mike kept us suitably oiled with a good selection of drinks. The boat is handsomely equipped and is super comfortable. On this occasion, we were able to raise the sails and enjoy a perfectly peaceful sail back to port. I cannot recommend this trip enough! Thanks Mike.

    We had an amazing time on our day sail with Michael. He went out of his way to make our sailing trip a memorable, once in a lifetime experience. We sailed to several beautiful seaside towns. The views were amazing and it was a gorgeous day to sail.

    Michael is a combination four star host and seasoned sailor. He provided a delicious breakfast (fruit and local pastry) and he makes the best Aperol Spritz we’ve had in Italy. He also offers beer, wine, soda, and, water. Lunch was prosciutto and melon, a platter of ham, cheese, olives, and pearl onions, a delicious caprese salad, and local focaccia. For dessert there was a huge platter of fresh fruit. Everything was fresh, delicious and expertly prepared.

    Michael knows a great deal about the area and gave us an in-depth tour. This was the highlight of our trip to Italy and money well spent! Thank you, Michael!

    Most incredible day! Mike was a wonderful and attentive host, anticipating needs ahead of time and tending to every detail. We took our daughter and friends on this day sail and it far exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend Mike and will definitely be returning to sail with him again.

    We have done many excursions with Captain Mike on the Calmacuor and every time is unique and lots of fun. He provides the most wonderful friendly and knowledgeable service in the most gorgeous area around. The food is fresh and light, a great mix of Italian / foreign fares. This is a guaranteed good time for the whole family.

    What an incredible day at sea with Captain Mike and his first mate Noel! Everything from our introduction to our farewell was like going sailing with lifelong friends. Croissants to start the morning, cold beverages during the trip and a wonderful light lunch. Mike and Noel kept us informed on the surroundings and the local history. The wind didn't always cooperate but had no impact on our trip.

    Where we anchored for lunch was an amazing area along the coast. This was the end of our vacation and the perfect way to end it. Glad we didn't do this first on our trip or expectations for other excursions would've had the bar set very, very high!

    Wishing Captain Mike the best on his upcoming surgery and first mate Noel on his new home construction! Was a true pleasure talking with you both about everything from scuba diving to making olive oil. :)

    We arranged this day through our hotel and it’s been the best day of our trip so far! Mike is so kind and knowledgeable and the boat is beautiful. The food and beverages were exactly what we hoped for and the views were incredible. The entire experience was perfect and we’d recommend Mike’s tour to anyone in the area. Hands down the best value and truly just a wonderful person to show you around the water. It’s evident he’s passionate about his boat and being on the water and it makes the day that much better!

    We went out for the day on the Calmacuor to Moneglia, a hidden paradise around the corner from Lavagna. The crystal clear water was ideal for snorkelling and floating around. The sea was warm and inviting and made for the perfect day. Paired with a calm breeze we were able to sail across the bay in Sestri on the way back. Mike is easy to talk to, speaks 3 languages and makes you feel very taken care of. We continue to return, as each time, we are treated like gold.
