Our family of five took a sunset sail with Captain Paul on his beautiful sailboat. The marina is very easy to find, and there are a couple of restaurants there to eat or have a drink. We had dinner before hand at The Parrot Key which is literally steps away from the slip where the Panacea leaves from. (The restaurant was excellent and it sits right on the water.) Paul was very helpful and easy to make reservations with on the phone. The sail itself was fabulous with beautiful scenery....well worth the money spent. Not to be missed! It was a highlight of our trip to Ft. Myers Beach.

Capt Paul gve us an amazing sunset sail. He scheduled date proved to be bad weather...and he graciously changed the date. He is an excellent sailor and provided all we could ask for...and more. We definitely will be back again!

As never having sailed before, I didn't know what to expect. It was the most amazing experience of our lives. Captain Paul is a skilled, cool, amazing person. He made us feel at home, safe, and we feel very fortunate that he shared his boat and knowledge with us. We would recommend Captain Paul and the Panacea to anyone, a beautiful vessel and sailing experience. Next year when we return to the area, we will be booking a custom cruise. I only wish we had booked a longer sail this time!

Thank you Captain Paul for an incredible journey!

We totally enjoyed our 1/2 day sail with Capt. Paul soooo much that we went back again the following week for another sail !!!! The sailboat is very spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for up to 6 people. There are 2 restrooms (heads) on board (that was one concern out of the way).

Everyone on board can choose to do as little or as much of the sailing as you please. You can choose to just sit back with Capt. Paul at the helm or do some or most of the sailing. It's up to you.
We opted to do a lot of the sailing and we loved it.

Capt. Paul is so much fun. He is so laid back and easy going, with a wonderful sense of humor. With the Caribbean music playing while we sailed we felt like we were in the "Islands Mon"
(Ask him to do a few magic tricks for you)

One word of advice: Don't wait until the last minute to book a sail, because you'll likely find that the boat is already full.

As boaters with our boat on the hard until April we really wanted to get out on the water. Capt. Paul and the 43 met and exceeded all we hoped for. We highly recommend this for boaters and non boaters. Both the comfort, amenities and scenery exceeded the expectations of all on board (sailors and non sailors alike). Capt. Paul is a true gentleman whose motto holds true. We booked as clients, we boarded as friends, we left as family. If time/schedules allow we want to go again this year. If not, Paul, see you within 12 months .... Keys? Michael & Susan (ps I won't jump on the dock again, you have about 12" more freeboard then i guessed)
