The whole experience was worth every penny. Captain Phil has a world of knowledge and experience. He educates you on safety, sailing and the sea while making you laugh and have fun. He only takes 6 guests which makes it feel like your own personal captain. My friends and I had a great time and would sail with Phil again.

Our trip with Captain Phil on the Wayward Sailor was fantastic. He took the time to instruct our kids in proper snorkeling equipment donning and technique and shared a naturalist's view of what we were seeing, which really enriched the experience. Highly recommend this trip!

Went for a sail today with Captain Phil of Wayward Sailor fame. He and his mates did a great job finding some nice snorkeling areas and was a pleasure to talk with through the day. Lunch was nice and even had a gluten free version for Molly. Hope to see you next time we come back.

My husband and I are avid snorkelers and Phil never fails to deliver. We went out with him and Tarn twice during our vacation and both days were memorable. Phil takes a max of 6 passengers and we've never been on the boat with more than 2 other people. He caters to all levels of expertise and safety is always... More

A very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Captain Phil is a joy and knows so much about the sea and the life in the sea. He also has a lot of great stories to amaze. Tarn is the best crew you could imagine - everything was great!

We were educated about some fish and learned how sand is a product of the fish! Capt. Phil is quite knowledgeable about octopus and has some... More
