Went for an afternoon sail with my wife and kids. Capt. Richard was very knowledgeable and it made for a very enjoyable afternoon. The boat is very comfortable. A great time.

Captain Richard was a great find! He was flexible, as our plans changed at the last minute as to how many people in our group came sailing. He has deep knowledge of the area and it’s history. We would highly recommend him for a day...More

We went for a sunset cruise with Captain Richard and had a fabulous time. Richard is an incredibly accomplished sailer who loves to share his passion with others. I would highly recommend Richard and his boat Serenidad!!!

We (5 people) did a sunset sail for my birthday; we enjoyed it tremendously. The boat is very comfortable and stable, Captain Richard is a proficient sailor and we had a great 2 1/2 hours sail. The time flew by!

We were not sure what to expect sailing with our special needs son. The boat is obviously not handicap accessible and we knew that in advance. We managed to move our 65 lb son onto and off the boat with almost no difficulty and left...More

We recently chartered the Serenidad for a three hour cruise and couldn't have been happier with the experience. Captain Richard was a great host; he taught us quite a bit about sailing (we're the curious kind), let my daughter and her fiancee take the helm...More
