Captain Greg was fantastic, made our party of 3 comfortable, he was so knowledgeable of the winds, boats, birds, dolphins. Very scenic and relaxed, we enjoyed the sunset sail very much and highly recommend this boat and trip. We will go again if in Florida

What a find! Captain Greg was kind, knowledgeable, professional and an excellent host. On our two-hour sunset sail we saw dolphins (almost immediately), the snout of a manatee, and a wide variety of birds. Captain Greg was quick to turn the boat around to get us the best views while keeping a respectful distance from the animals. After two days at Disney, this was the tonic my soul needed. Thank you, Captain Greg, for a lovely, relaxing, and fun sail. Hope to meet with you again someday!

What an excellent way to spend a couple of hours. The trip starts with Capt Greg giving an overview of his boat and explaining what he hopes we will see in terms of wildlife. As we motored out to the Intercostal we were escorted by a group of dolphins. Capt Greg had already pointed out several types of birds by the time we set sail. It is amazing how peaceful it becomes when the small motor goes off and the sails go up. The only sounds are the smooth water on the bow and the wind in the sail. The sunset is so much more beautiful when you’re on the water. It’s easy to tell how much Capt Greg enjoys the trips and loves being on the water. The boat holds up to six passengers and soft drinks and a small selection of snacks are included. My group chose to take a cooler with adult beverages. I highly recommend spending an evening with Capt Greg.

Our tour was wonderful. We experienced a beautiful sunset and enjoyed seeing all of the birds on the island sanctuary was amazing. The ride was smooth despite it being a windy day with waves. At one point it started to rain, but we were able to go below for a short time until the weather passed. Captain Greg was a great tour guide! It was a highlight of our vacation.

We had an excellent cruise with Captain Greg. His boat is well-maintained and he is a master of his craft. This was our second time sailing with Greg and we had amazing time on both cruises and his customer service was top notch as he catered to our every whim. We also saw abundant wildlife out on both visits, including dolphins, manatees, and too many species of birds to list here. I highly recommend taking a cruise with him on his boat, The Freedom; you won’t regret it.

Went on a sailing adventure with Captain Greg last night. Had an amazing time. The boat is very comfortable for 6 passengers. We saw dolphins, manatee, and so many birds on our adventures !
I would 100% recommend this sailing trip, it is a great value while being both very fun and relaxing.
Cannot wait to book again, it will be soon.

Captain Greg was fantastic and was very informative about local wildlife. We saw lots of wildlife, including dolphins. The scenery, especially at sunset, is beautiful. I would highly recommend taking a sailboat ride with Freedom Sailing Adventures. You will not be disappointed. It was a great experience, one we will definitely do again sometime. It was just a nice peaceful way to end the day.

We took the sunset cruise for grandsons birthdays - ages 7 and 11. It was great fun. The kids loved the sailing lore told by Captain Greg and the opportunity to sail the boat. It made all their first-time sailing jitters vanish. The dolphin sighting was also special. I would highly recommend this tour.

Could not ask for a better experience. Not only was Captain Greg professional, caring and accommodating he went above and beyond to give us a wonderful experience. On our way back in we encountered several dolphins. Instead of just continuing on despite the fact our time was about up he brought us around several times to allow us the opportunity to sail among them. Definitely will be back, and if you are considering a sailing experience, do not look anywhere else.

I was taken for a sunset sail for my birthday and it was absolutely beautiful and amazing sunset and sail. Captain Greg is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and experienced captain. Captain Greg was very patience, helpful and understanding with me and my mobility issues. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves to sail or wants to relax on sail boat. I plan on going again soon.
