The Sunset Sail was absolutely perfect and a positively memorable experience on this special day with my family. Catherine and Kurt are genuinely kind and warm people and the best Captain and First Mate we could've hoped for. They ensured our sail was perfect offering blankets, refreshments, photography and the best music playlist. From the moment we stepped onto their... More

We sailed out through Longboat Pass and into the Gulf where we watched a beautiful sunset. They even take pictures for you so that you don't have to.... More

We took the three hour sunset cruise with Captain Kurt and Cathy. They couldn't have been nicer hosts. Had company bean bags in the back of the sailboat where we just sat back and relaxed and enjoyed the gulf. Captain Kurt is a very very skilled captain. He told us he's been sailing since he was a kid. We enjoyed... More
