Look no further. Capt Steve, Mica, Buoy and Miles are the best. Capt Steve and his crew are sailing professionals and run a great sailing adventure/ tour or private charter. We went on both the sunset sail and afternoon sail which included swim time in a waist deep cove; the boat was equipped with paddle boards, kayaks, noodles, and snorkel equipment. There was nice music appropriate for a mix of clientele. Rum swizzles available and other beverages as well as historical commentary as we toured/ sailed. Capt Steve and Mica were engaging, and created a fun experience for everyone. Buoy was an experienced professional assisting those on board to capture memorable photos of the day/ evening. Miles continued to offer drinks and took good care of each guest. The boat was clean and well cared for. This is truly an outstanding sailing tour and great people who go out of their way to welcome you and make sure you are comfortable and having a great time. We visit Bermuda frequently, and this is the tour/activity that we never miss. If you do one thing in Bermuda, sail with these guys as this will be the highlight of your vacation.

Our family of four took an afternoon cruise on the Rising Son in August of 2020. The boat was comfortable and well kept and all needed amenities attended to. Even the bathrooms were organized and had clear instructions and extra unexpected amenities. The boards, kayaks and snorkeling equipment were very well maintained and the crew knew what they were doing with the gear. The crew was super friendly and professional and took care of our every need offering service at all points throughout the journey. They provided safety demonstrations and historical and local information during the ride, and were there waiting to help us whenever we needed anything whether it was drinks, assistance with equipment, advice, or just good conversation. Our kids had a great time and we did too beginning to end. I'd highly recommend this tour if you want to experience Bermuda from the water! Thanks for a great and memorable afternoon.

Every time we charter with the Rising Son team our experience is excellent from start to finish. Last weekend we spent the day celebrating our friend’s 30th and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Michelle was so helpful, quick to respond and went out of her way to ensure that everything was set up prior to the charter. Captain Steve, Adrian and Miles were super attentive ensuring all guests were having a great time, from our sailing experience down to drinks and DJ. 10/10 highly recommend. Thank you for providing the perfect day!
