Changing Weather Conditions Not a Problem
Jul 2021 • Friends
Excellent communication from Captain Dan as we worked around changing weather conditions the day of our sail. We still experienced some rain, and were immediately provided with rain jackets and towels.

Also, we greatly appreciated first mate Tracey taking and emailing photos of our group on the boat.

A Great Day In Fort Lauderdale
Jul 2021 • Family
We had such a great time with Captain Dan. We had the boat to ourselves. There was plenty of space. The weather was great, which allowed us to snorkel ontwo different spots and fish a little bit. Dan was a wealth of information. It was a great time :) thanks!

Birthday wish came true!!
Capt. Dan was sooo nice and made me and my girlfriends feel at home on his sailboat. We were greeted politely by his wife Tracy and we had a beautiful sunny day and we could have had a better experience. It was my birthday wish and it came true! We will definitely do this again!

Fantastic Sailing Lesson!
Apr 2021
Sailing on the Wind Pirate with Captain Dan was a fantastic experience! My fiancé and I were interested in learning a bit about sailing and Dan was more than accommodating. Not only were we both able to take the helm for as long as we wanted, but he also even let us get some hands on with hoisting the mail sail and some of the sail changes. Captain Dan's knowledge and willingness to teach were invaluable. He was a kind and down to earth guy who made our day on the water a time to remember. So much so, that we came back again for another sail a few days later. I would recommend sailing with Captain Dan anytime and hope that we cross paths again someday. Fair winds and following seas.

Awesome Experience
Apr 2021
We went on a private 4 hour cruise. Captain Dan and First Mate Tracey are awesome, so welcoming, friendly, professional yet easy-going, well-prepared, experienced, and knowledgeable. The 4 hours trip was so relaxing, and provided such a great Ft Lauderdale experience, really getting access to the city and intercoastal ways, seeing so much you don't see walking up and down the beach. Dan would do anything and had so much insight into the entire area. You could quickly understand how much experience he has boating and in the FLL area. We had 3 adults and 2 late teens and enjoyed the trip so much. We look forward to another trip in the future.

Beauty and Adventure!
Mar 2021
Love the feeling of floating along, gazing at all of the gorgeous scenery along the New River, the parks, the lovely estates, a myriad of boats and motorized tiki-huts (!) You cannot have a bad day out on a private 40' yacht in the ocean! Fantasic way to celebrate hubby's birthday, who even got to skipper the boat for part of our trip. Dan Whelan takes really good care of his guests and I felt very pampered and safe aboard his boat. We hope to do it again next year! A unique way to enjoy nature and each other. Simply the best. Five stars.

Great boating experience!
Mar 2021
Had the best time on the boat thanks to Captain Dan and First Mate Tracey. It was wonderful to explore FLL from the sailboat. Not only did we get to explore the intercoastal waterways we got to head into the ocean where we swam and had the option to snorkel. The boat was also very clean and we felt very COVID safe!

We had a beautiful afternoon on the water with Captain Dan —he even allowed our son to take the helm for a significant portion of our trip! We highly recommend this activity to visitors of Fort Lauderdale if they want to both experience sailing on the ocean and see the unique Intracoastal community.
