I can't say enough excellent things about Sailing the Daedalus with Captain BJ and John. Captain BJ made special accommodations for us - and I'm sure he would bend over backward to be sure you had a wonderful trip, no matter what the occasion or need. We did the 3 hour sunset cruise and it was beautiful. Saw several dolphins... More

We took a sunset cruise with Captain BJ and his mate John on an adventure that was second to none. Along with an amazing cruise, we saw the perfect sunset and as the sky was popping with oranges, blues and purples, the Dolphins rose at the side of the boat. At one point BJ told us, "The difference between power... More

Captain BJ can tell great stories and is making sure you have a great time. There were a total of 6 on the boat, and he made sure everyone got to have a good time.

We had a family reunion in Orange Beach this year, and this dolphin sail boat cruise was the best part of the trip! It was 3 hours long and we got to swim!!! I've been on a sail boat dolphin cruise that was 2 hours long, you couldn't swim and it was almost double the amount of this one! There's... More

We had a party of 10, with 4 adults and 6 kids ranging in ages from 1.5 to 9. Captain BJ and First Mate John were excellent with the kids, taking them below decks, allowing them at the helm, attentive and engaging. We had no worries concerning the kids' safety. All of us thoroughly enjoyed sailing on the Daedalus around... More

Captain BJ and his first mate were both very friendly and attentive. They gave us a heads up when the sails would be moving or the boat would tilt, took pictures of us with the sunset in view, and even called another sailor to snap a few shots when they noticed a friend nearby. The boat was clean and quite... More

The crew of the Daedalus were very personable. The ship was quite spacious for our party of 6 adults. We booked a 3 hour sail and swim at 9am. If you aren't familiar with this region of the US, it's hot and it's humid, so the earlier you can go on an excursion the better. Unfortunately, there had been rain... More

The sunset cruise was relaxing, beautiful, educational, entertaining, and inspiring! There were other cruise options we are eager to return and try. Master & skipper, B. J. and his capable first mate, John, sailed the lovely Daedalus expertly as B. J. spun fascinating sailor's tales (they might even have been true). It was the best return on our vacation dollars...

Cpt. B.J and John were great. My husband and I manned the helm and the guys walked us through the basics, showing us several ways to navigate. It was a very relaxing ride.
