FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!! We were part of a group to have our first TB sunset sailing trip, and had the privilege to be on the Adagio with Captain Mike. The boat is absolutely massive and immaculate--our 5yo daughter (well ok, and her daddy) loved the hammock most of all. A truly breathtaking way to experience St Pete and TB--what a special place we all live. Mike was courteous, personable, and just an all around great guy. Highly recommend SFC as your cruising choice--we'll be seeing them again soon!

Last week, several friends and I chartered one of the powerboats from Cruising Florida Powerboat Academy, and our experience was top notch! When we arrived, we were quite impressed with the facilities at The Vinoy and the variety of boats in the fleet. Dave and Patrick matched us with the perfect boat for our needs, and all of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The boat we chartered was clean, comfortable and in good working order. We can't wait to charter again in the near future.

I really learned a lot and enjoy learning how to properly dock a boat. It would had been nice if you guys had cold water instead of warm water, because the sun was out in full force

Best hands-on training experience for advanced docking of a twin in-board motor yacht! Hats off to Capt Patrick Hirt's patience, expertise and knowledge. The 37' 2015 catamaran was nearly new and in excellent condition for our outing at the Tampa Boat Show. It is hard to put in words the enjoyment of driving and training on this vessel. This was money well-spent and worth every dollar.

Visiting a boat show and taking the hands on seminars is always a great way to learn docking. Thanks for coming to the show.
