My team and I came from Canada to see what the Florida ocean front had to offer— and Stef and Ernest blew our expectations out of the very water we came to see.

Sure the sights were nice— we got to see some fancy houses and boats— but the depth of knowledge that Ernest had about each house, and each boat, is what really made me this aspect of the trip fun. Each of these stories about the yachts and houses seemed like something out of fiction, and the way Ernest told the stories made Shakespeare seem like a dyslexic b****. An amazing orator.

Our captain, Stef, was equally as incredible. She’s The only female captain in the area and she could probably parallel park a cruise ship between the gap in Willem Dafoe’s front teeth. She was such a good captain. I’d bet Blackbeard is looking up from Davy Jones Locker saying prayers of thanks to Poseidon that Stef wasn’t roaming the open ocean during his time on earth— because Stef would’ve made an absolute joke out of Blackbeard’s stupid little boat. Queen Anne’s Revenge? How about Queen Stef’s Almighty Fist Of War Time Power? I’d take Stef in a boat without canons and half a sail over any pirate in a war ship any day. She was also really fun and accommodating.

If you’re wondering what you’re getting yourself into on this day trip, then imagine this: you’re wife left you and she took the kids, but Stef and Ernest come down from the clouds like the f*****’ Hindenburg and offer you eternal bliss and backstage passes to Coachella. That’s the energy this trip gives anyways, and by that, I mean you could be depressed af and these two would take your mood, beat the s*** out of it, and make you feel like Jenny just came back to Forrest Gump.

I have never had more fun on an excursion or trip in my life, and I owe it completely to these two. Do yourself a favor, and book a day trip on a catamaran with Stef and Ernest. It will change your life.

Thank you so much for this glowing and hilarious review. Surely you must be a writer that specializes in humor. I even considered forwarding your review to National Lampoon. Reading your review brought us more laughs than watching a pack of wiener dogs trying to tackle a volleyball. Your review is the quintessential pie in the face of all negative reviewers and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. That you so much for sailing with us and even more for the laughs. We hope you will join us again.

This would have been a wonderful champagne sunset cruise even without the once in a lifetime experience the captain and first mate gave to my elementary aged son, when they allowed him to steer the catamaran. Vic and Ernest went over the top to give all of us amazing photo ops, and fast drink service with a wonderful tour of the mansions and Ft. Lauderdale history. But, the most amazing experience for us, was them allowing my son to sail the 48 foot catamaran and radio in to the main street bridge lift operators when we needed permission to sail under. We will always be thankful for the over the top kindness and happiness they gave our son. Vic and Ernest (E) YOU ROCK! THANK YOU!!!

We booked this for a large group of friends based on the reviews here. Would highly recommend. Staff and crew were awesome and very accommodating. We booked an earlier time but due to some circumstances had to reschedule to the later boat. We contacted them by email and they easily accommodated this request, and responded quickly. On the day of the boat (despite being told to be there 45 mins early) some of my friends were late but they were kind enough to hold the boat for 15 minutes until they got there, so kudos for that (and apologies to everyone else on the boat for the delay!). They take you out to an island with impressive views of Biscayne Bay. Once there there's an assortment of toys (kayaks, paddle boards, etc) to play around with.

Overall awesome time, highly recommended and would do it again!

I chartered a private sunset cruise on Spirit of Ft. Lauderdale for my MIL’s birthday. Greg was fantastic to interact with from the start. He e-mailed photos, video and detailed information which made tailoring our event easy. Captain Jason and crewmember Nick welcomed us warmly and delivered the safety briefing with friendly, fun banter that put my guests at ease. I hired Ed from Steel band Culture. His music was perfect to hear while cruising through canals looking at homes shimmering with holiday lights. We loved the experience and will reminisce about it for years.

Staff is rude. They pressure you into changing times that more adequately fits their time and money and then refuses to issue refunds when the time change doesn’t work. Staff curses at you and gives you the run around when you try to talk to a manager. I’ve been on countess boat tours in countless cities around the world and have never dealt with such a rude staff. Spend your money elsewhere.

Went on the Island Adventure trip and was a blast. Wife and I really enjoyed our time out on the boat as we navigated back and forth from a private island. The crew (Capt. Corey and his First Mate Lanie) were really engaging too and made the trip even better.

During our island visit, it was an absolute kick back of relaxation. I took in a standup paddle board, bounced around for a few on a water trampoline and just floated around with a beer in hand.

Will definitely look to go again.

This by far was the best catamaran trip we have taken!!! The boat was clean and big. The captains were absolutely the best!! The ocean was very rough on our trip. They took us out briefly and then back to the intercostal to swim and relax. Will definitely do it again!!

Excellent crew, easy to find, and a great deal! Dylan and Ernesto made the trip so fun and were very personable. We really enjoyed our time; I would highly recommend this to anyone! Amazing views and the captain made sure to allow us to soak in all the beauty; there was no rush at all.
