I can't add much to the other reviews other than to say, if you are looking for a way to completely relax and mentally and physically escape for a few hours, "Sail Away" with Captain Brian is the answer. Our group consisted of four adults and two young children and we all had a great time. Personal service for your family or small group. You will enjoy this decision

So glad we found Sail Away to take us out. We stay away from the big boats that have a ton of people packed on. This is a much more intimate experience and Bryan will make the day what you request. Our kids (2 & 4) wanted to look for sea shells so he took us to the perfect spot for our two little ones to walk around in knee deep water and search. Great day with Sail Away and we will definitely go again when we return.

The absolute highlight of our vacation!! Captain Bryan is great! He's an expert in sailing, the sea life, of Destin itself, as well as, the surrounding areas. Presented with the temperament a considerate, caring big brother, Bryan shares his knowledge of the sites and life around you as you sail through the harbor and beyond. You feel welcomed, special and safe, all at the same time.

Please, do you and your family/friends a favor and splurge on a private sail! It's actually quite reasonable compared with anything we've done in the Caribbean or Hawaii for at least 50%-75% more. Even Chicago was twice the price! So, if you're thinking of a party boat for your group, don't. Instead, eat in one night and put that all $$ towards Sail Away and get a personally guided, exclusive sail with Captain Bryan. You will wonder why you ever considered anything else.

We were extra fortunate, but Bryan knows the waters and where to find the dolphins. We literally saw dozens!! It was absolutely amazing!! We even saw stingray.

Just do it. :)

This boat tour is just absolutely perfect for the family. It really does not cost a lot of money for your own private boat ride. Lots of other tours pack you on the boat with tons of other smelly people that you do not know. Capt. Brian takes you out and only you. You and up to 5 others. He knows everything about Destin and really knows how to sail. The water was gorgeous and the dolphins came right up next to us. My young child could not believe his eyes when the dolphin popped up and looked straight at him. I was even amazed. This is a MUST DO private family friendly boat ride for everyone! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 10 STARS!

This is something for people looking for a more intimate sailing experience. Gone are the large boats with hoards of people on board this delightful catamaran experience.

Looking to head out for an afternoon on the water, we noticed a review about Brian's sailing trips being available for smaller groups and private charters. We made the call and three of us headed out for a three hour afternoon sail bringing a cool of drinks and some snacks along with us.

To say it was was brilliant would be an understatement. We sailed out of the harbour and along the coast and then made our way into the inner bay. We saw no shortage of dolphins who swum by numerous times to entertain us.

Brian was a great and engaging captain, sharing his knowledge of the area along with other places he has travelled. A perfect host and delightful companion.

So if you're looking for a custom tailored sailing trip for a family or a group of adults, look no further than Sail Away. You won't be disappointed!
