We had the absolute best time sailing with Captain Al! He made our experience SO memorable and was BEYOND accommodating, friendly and flexible! He was truly the perfect host. We can't wait to book this again!! Thank you Captain Al!

Captain Al and his mate (forgot his name -sorry) were phenomenal! My 3 girlfriends and I booked a 6 hour sail and this blew our expectations out of the water! They were so kind, accommodating, generous, and fun! The ship was clean and the sail was a dream. I highly recommend booking your trip with them, we plan on returning every summer to for an afternoon boat excursion with Captain Al. Cannot say enough about this experience, so awesome!!! They went out of their way to ensure our day was perfect. THANK YOU!

Perfect hosts. Everything exactly as promised as well as good company. Captain Al and his first mate, Jeff, told us about the area while we enjoyed a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. It was a great day, and I highly recommend it!

My family has sailed with Al and Nancy 6 times. It's officially summer when we hop on board. I have nothing but nice things to say about our sailing trips. They are excellent hosts. The boat is amazing and clean. We always bring food and drinks. Nancy helps serve. Al allows us to hoist the sails when we desire to. We always have fun and feel safe. I would not sail with anyone but Al and Nancy! Great must do when in Saugatuck , Douglas area.

We had a great time sailing on the Desire! Al and Nancy are charming. They even brought Kruise, the dog they were watching, along for the ride. The weather was perfect, not too windy, not too calm to be boring. They know a lot about the area, the other boats, and gave restaurant recommendations.
