“The Magic of Five Days at Sea”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Words cannot express our hearts. My husband and I spent five days in the Keys with Susan and Russ aboard Captain Sir! and those days were some of the best we can remember.
There was such an attention to detail from the food to the music... it was perfection!
Susan and Russ are fine, decent people and take their roles as "hospitality angels" very seriously. It was a pleasure to be in their company... so relaxed, so appropriate.
My husband has some serious health issues. Susan and Russ were attentive to our special circumstance and did whatever they could to make us comfortable and at peace. This is not a small matter.
We would highly recommend this charter. They were truly exceptional! Kim and John MacIver

My wife and I recently enjoyed an evening with Russell and Susan Boley, along with anouther couple that are friends of ours. Without exception, sailing on board Capt Sir with our wonderful hosts was the highlight of our vacation. The ride was peaceful, unrushed, luxurious, and spectacular… lots of fun. The food was fantastic, as good as or actually better than much of what we ate in fine restaurants in the area... and there was plenty of it.

Listen, if you are interested in a little pampering and to enjoy life on a luxurious schooner for an afternoon or extended trip, this is the way to go... you will not regret for 1 second your decision. Even with the grey skys and light drizzle for part of our trip, it was nothing short of spectacular.

Do not miss this opportunity...

“Sunset Anniversary”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

For my first year wedding anniversary I wanted to surprise my husband with an experience that would truly amaze him-- Captain Russ and his wife Susan helped me make that happen. Before our sailing Captain Russ & Susan sat with me on their beautiful sailboat and went over every detail of the evening. They truly let me personalize the evening! Finally when the special night came Captain walked my husband (who had no clue) on to his beautiful sailboat. He gave my husband a tour and promised him an evening he would never forget. From the moment we stepped on the boat till the moment we returned to dock and got into our car, Russ and Susan were so attentive and amazing that our experience could not have been more perfect. Captain served a dinner that was to die for while Susan prepared the beautiful top tear of my wedding cake for desert.

Point is that under the sunset and the lights of the city my husband and I experienced exactly what I wanted... a beautiful and memorable anniversary. It could not have been the same without the help of Captain Russ, Susan, and a sailboat that came from a romance movie.

“What an incredible surprise!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I grew up sailing (in cold and windy northern CA), so I thought I knew what to expect for a day on a sailboat. We ended up on Russ and Susan's charter, Captain Sir! out of Biscayne Bay for a day sail on a corporate event. We had such an incredible time, that a private group of us decided to take the boat ANOTHER afternoon on our own the following Saturday. We had a lovely time, and who knew that we were also sailing with the winner of the local Key Lime Pie contest. Eventhough all of us were watching what we ate, the key lime pie was all gone after lunch! Also, as much as I love a true sailing adventure with all of the canvas up, Russ was just as happy to let us dawdle with just the furled genoa, since it was somewhat windy, and our five friends rarely have time to spend together - we actually wanted to chat more than actively sail. Russ would have been happy either way. I can't say enough about their lovely hospitality, the food, and the experience.

“What a wonderful day!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We took our Chicago friends for a sunset sail. They now want to make it a yearly experience. Capt Russ and his wife Susan are the best. We should have listened to Capt Russ when he said "dont eat lunch". There was so much to eat, with one course better than the last. Dont miss the key lime pie. Our favorite course was the veggie plate. Dont fill up on the cheese, cracker and fresh fruit plate that they start with. Save room, you wont be disappointed.
