We had a wonderful experience. Cap’t Dan was a wonderful guide. I loved that he let my son help with the sails and gave him a chance to steer the boat. Such beauty on the water.

Cpt. Dan is the man... my husband and I enjoyed our sailing experience of a lifetime with him, we sailed, swam in the ocean, listened to an awesome variety of music and simply just chilled on the ocean with such peace and tranquility... this is truly an extraordinary experience where from start to finish you'd be pleased... We the Texas folks definitely recommend him highly... Thank you for our amazing sailing experience ...

Captain Dan was great! Had a great time learned about the area and got to do some open ocean sailing! My wife loved the river part of the tour. Captain Dan was really flexible, up for fishing, cruising, or snorkeling!
