We booked a sunset sail while vacationing in Fort Myers. Captain Paul was great! We enjoyed the company of the 2 other couples on the sail. It was a beautiful evening and we hope to do it again when back in Fort Myers!

Don’t hesitate to book a sail on the Panacea thru Fanta Sea sailing. There is nothing that could have made this experience better. A really knowledgable captain, a beautiful vessel and a gorgeous location. We loved every second.

Great trip yesterday. Captain Paul is a blast. The boat is perfect for large or small groups! We highly recommend the trip. Super comfortable. The margaritas we brought even tasted better on the boat! Cheers, The Sandy's/Gutting's

A beautiful sail on a very clean vessel with a great crew. Highly recommend. The max passengers of six made for a very comfortable sail.

Go on their website for a total schedule and prices. We did the Sunset Cruise which was 3 hours and the four of us had the whole boat to ourselves for a set price.
