Booked an overnight sailing charter 6 weeks in advance for a surprise 50th birthday present fir my husband and put down a deposit. I was told the captain would be in touch to plan our itinerary. When i had not heard from the captain 2 weeks before sailing, I reached out. I was told that a captain had not been assigned yet but was assured one would be shortly. after hearing nothing, I reached out again a week prior and was told the same thing. after again hearing nothing, I reached out 4 days prior, and this time, someone from corporate responded and said that a lot of the captains had taken vacation at the same time so they were having trouble finding one but she was sure that they would be able to and would call back the next day. After no call back, I reached out and she told me she was looking into having some captains switch charters and would be back in touch the next day. Again after no return call, and the day before our scheduled departure, i spoke to corporate again and they said that they couldn’t find a captain and would have to cancel. yes…one day before. I planned this 6 weeks in advance, reserved a hotel the night before (too late to cancel), arranged babysitters….all while keeping this a surprise from my husband. I was never told that my reservation was contingent on finding a captain. I do not understand why they even accept the reservation if a captain is not available. and, to wait until the day before, while assuring me all along that one would be assigned, is horrible customer service. Thus, if you book a charter, know that your reservation means nothing.

My wife and I had a great time during our stay with Sailing Florida. Our instructor, Captain Edd, ensured we learned what is needed to successfully pilot sail boats of various sizes. He related instruction from his years of practical experience.

Found the charter service by pure happenstance as a peripheral service related to our sailing courses. Went in with zero expectations and were truly impressed.

My husband and I have taken ASA 101/103 and 104 with Captain Rick. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable, and you can tell he has a passion for sailing. We were able to sail on few different boats in these classes. All were clean, well stocked and sailed great. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to taking their sailing to the next level.
