This trip highlighted our beach vacation. Captain Bonny took us out into the Gulf away from all of the Destin noise and we sailed until we could no more. Then she motor sailed us back into the harbor and took the long way so we could enjoy it awhile longer. Our teens were on the bow and our younger girls... More

Had a family sailing excursion with Captain Bonny and Just Sailing yesterday and would highly recommend to families or parties of 6 or less. Had a great tour of the harbor, with some insightful commentary from Bonny on the history of the area and sailed around everywhere from Crab Island to well into the Gulf and back. Our daughter soaked... More

Captain Bonny was great with our kids. She didn't bat an eye at the 300 questions. The wind wasn't cooperating, so the Captain motored us all around the bay and gulf offering tidbits of info without talking too much to ruin the relaxing experience. She is a true sailor, not a tour guide, and she is incredibly hospitable. We all... More

I enjoyed having you and your family aboard Braveheart. I gave it my best shot not to have to motor as I prefer sailing, but sometimes the wind just won't cooperate. Thank you so much for your kind words. More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenage boys) took a sailing trip with Captain Bonnie. The weather was perfect and she took us out into the Gulf. We planned the trip so that our older boys could help sail the ship, but they ended up hanging out on the front of the boat just enjoying being out on... More

Thank you for such kind words. When I heard a comment about not seeing dolphins in the wild, I really wanted to see some. They are amazing animals and I'm as excited to see them as my guest. Say thank you to your son for playing a song for us, he is talented and I enjoyed sharing sailing with you.... More

I should have posted this a while ago as one of the reasons why I booked through Just Sailing was the other Tripadvisor reviews... but better late than never! Long story short, I booked an intro to sailing excursion for my Dad as a fathers day gift. Both he and my Mom went out with Bonny the week after the... More

My wife and I have sailed much of the Bahamas and Caribbean bare boating, but heath problems now prevent solo sailing. Captain Todd quenched my desire for a delightful sailing trip last evening. Unlike many outfits you might find, she really sails, not motoring with a sail up and graciously let me take the helm for old times sake. She... More

What windy evening we chose to go sailing. At least the sunset on the bay was once again breath taking for your anniversary. It was one of the most specatular sunsets of the year. Hope your photos turn out well. I had a lot of fun, enjoyed talking with you while we sailed the bay. Thanks for being my deckhand... More

I've wanted to try sailing for a while now, and the choice to try it for the first time with Captain Bonny was a great choice. She was willing to teach, answer questions, and let us do some of the work, but she was just as willing to do all the sailing work while we relaxed and took in the... More

My husband and I chose to sail with Capt. Bonny and are so glad we did! She was fun and knowledgeable of the rules which is important in the busy harbor as well as sailing in general.

Contacted Capt Bonny Todd to coordinate a Discover Sailing trip. From the moment she answered the phone, one could tell this was going to be a positive experience. Instead of stating "this is what we do", Bonny took the time to learn what the expectations of the trip were and planned accordingly. Bonny started by giving a walk through of... More
