We spent 5 days on Selah with Bob and Ann obtaining our 103 and 104 ASA certifications. The boat was beautiful as was the surroundings. Bob and Ann were patient and knowlegable and offered constant encouragement along the way. Their humor and friendliness made it all so much easier. We enjoyed wonderful food with amazing views. We hope to see... More

I recently spent a week with three friends learning the "ropes" with Bob and Ann aboard their 42 ft Catalina sailboat. Only two of us actually took lessons while the other two who were experienced sailors came along to enjoy the ride. Bob and Ann simply do it all - not are they patient and thorough instructors, they cook(amazing meals),... More

Captain Bob demonstrates patience and provides excellent instructions for sailors of all levels. He provides instruction that is enjoyable and challenging all at the same time. I feel I am a much better sailor after spending 4 days under his guidance.

My wife and I recently embarked on a five day learning to sail excursion with Bob and Ann. We not only had fun seeing the Keys but learned sailing basics and got to spend some wonderful time with lovely people. My biggest concern was that our lack of sailing knowledge would impinge on the fun, but with the paitient teaching... More

In life, one has expectations. Often we temper them so that we aren't disappointed. In the case of our coures+cruising aboard Selah with Ann and Bob, I actually had high hopes based on our communications with them and thoroughness of their preparations. Well, the week aboard Selah exceeded those expectations many-fold! My wife Robin and I had fun, we learned... More

This was my first time sailing and I can't believe how much I enjoyed it. I'm sure that had a lot to do with Captains Bob + Ann. They make you feel at home out there on the ocean and they have a natural way of explaining everything which makes it easier than I had expected. In addition the Captains... More

The art of sailing is not lost when aboard Selah. The spirit that surrounds the boat, the freedom of the sails blowing in the wind, and the knowledge and adventurous spirit of Bob and Ann made the adventure fly by. Ducking under the boom, tightening the ropes, jamming to some TobyMac, eating by sunset...it was an unbeatable experience.
