The sunset cruise with Captain Tim was so good that our entire family applauded him from the dock afterwards. Captain Tim was extremely sensitive to the needs and wants of the group. He let out a line with floats into the water for the younger people, brought pillows for the older folks when they were relaxing, and had the best evening playlist ever. After a long week, we all came to the cruise tired. After drifting, seemingly suspended under the Little Dipper, we all left renewed.

Wow, this was honestly one of the best if not THE best experience I’ve ever had in my life. By far exceeded my expectations. I’ve traveled and been around the world but honestly nothing beats the serenity and peace you feel sailing on the water. Captain Tim made the entire ride smooth sailing. He told us he’s been doing this for a long time and the fact that he clearly still enjoys it just as much now as he did then definitely says something. We did a sunset tour but even after the sun goes down, the views somehow only get better. There’s been a lot of craziness going on in the world lately but somehow being on the water makes you forget about all of that and be completely in the moment. Also Captain Tim is so awesome and nice, such a pleasure to have him as our Captain. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND- you will not regret this amazing experience!

I booked a trip to propose to my girlfriend and we had a great experience even though a storm started to hit austin. Captain Tim is such a great person and fun to talk. He is so experienced on sailing and made us feel safe even with strong winds. He was even able to record the whole moment!

Boat is very nice for a romantic trip for sure I will book this again

Captain Tim treated us to a truly magnificent experience!! He was a fantastic captain with a beautiful boat and he made us feel safe and at home from the moment we stepped on board. He took us all around Lake Travis, told us stories and taught us about the boat, answered the many questions from our kids, and even let both of them steer the boat. And he took a bunch of pictures of all of us on top of that. We saw a beautiful sunset from the boat and then Captain Tim navigated us a bit further out so we could see the sun go behind the hill again. All four of us thought it was the highlight of our trip and we'd love to come back. Thanks so much, Captain Tim!

I can’t speak highly enough of Captain Tim and the experience. I booked a charter for my now Fiancée and I for a romantic proposal. Tim was not only available when needed for calls, but also went out of his way to help me plan out every piece of the endeavor. Tim runs the company, takes the calls, sails the boat, and even takes all the pictures (see attached), so you have one point of communication for everything. Overall, the professionalism, communication, and the friendly attitude that Tim conveyed made this the best charter I’ve ever been on. I highly recommend that, if you are considering a sailboat trip and he is available, you book with Tim as he will go out of his way to make the experience unforgettable!

I've cruised with Captain Tim twice now. Both times he was incredibly accommodating to our requests and was happy to say yes to anything as long at it adhered to his strict safety standards. Immediately, it is clear you are in skilled hands and I was totally comfortable checking out to enjoy the beautiful lake knowing that Tim was 100% vigilant about our safety. Tim has a great personality and is fun to engage with. The boat is meticulously maintained and gorgeous. The midday cruise is perfect for a girl's trip, but would be great for families as well. We already have our third trip planned!

Absolutely perfect trip. Captain Tim is the exact captain you want. He was free to answer any of our questions as we were preparing for our trip. Once we started he took us through all his favorite spots and made the boat feel as if it was ours. I can say with confidence that if we are back, we will be booking with Cap again for even longer!

Also he will take photos for you and your group on a true camera and send them to you the next day! Nothing be great views, relaxation and a lot of fun on this trip!

Captain Tim totally rocked the casbah for us. We had a great 3-hour sunset sail on a giant lake in Austin, Texas. He has a beautiful 45’ sailboat. We brought a couple bottles of wine and he provided the corkscrew. Captain Tim was very friendly and regaled us with numerous stories of his career. He could tell us all about many of the houses along the shore of the lake. Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip to Austin. Would definitely do it again! Two thumbs up!!

My husband and I booked a sunset sail for our wedding anniversary. The sun and weather cooperated and we had a lovely evening. Captain Tim told us of the many sailing trips he has done and is available for private ocean trips besides all that he does on Lake Travis.

I booked a charter as a surprise for my wife for our anniversary on a getaway trip to Austin. It was hands down our favorite part of the whole trip! Captain Tim is the consummate host. Tremendous service and extremely skilled, we were definitely in good hands. The boat was so nice and so spacious. It was also our first time sailing, the bar is set pretty high! Would recommend to anyone either specifically looking to cruise Lake Travis or just looking for something great to do or entertain.

Thanks again, Captain Tim
