“Priceless memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

It's been months since our private sail, but the memories are as fresh as if it were yesterday. Russ and Susan are an amazing couple dedicated to making every single moment of your day absolutely memorable. From the moment we came on board, we were greeted with smiles and treated like welcomed guests. The food was delicious, the attention to detail superb, and the overall experience was priceless. We decided to do a half day adventure with a sunset dinner and there was nothing more romantic than watching the sun go down on Miami with a delicious meal and the experience of a expert sailor. I really can't find a single thing to complain about, this was truly a luxurious sailboat and the experience was well worth the cost. I will definitely be sailing again with them the next time I am in Miami, absolutely a priceless memory.

“Dream Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I have sailed on Captain Sir thrice -- two day-sails and one one-week sail. I was going through a difficult period last year and treated myself to the week-long sail. Susan and Russ took wonderful care of me. We sailed down to Key Largo, talked, sunbathed, swam, ate, ate, and ate. Russ is a superb cook and baker, AND he shares my sweet tooth. There were nights when we all laid on deck, looked at the stars and also danced. The biggest plus? Susan and Russ are lovely people and I'm proud to be a friend of theirs.

“Smooth Sailing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Just came off a sail on Captain Sir. Took the kids (5 and 7) together with some friends from out of town. We are local to the area so getting to the marina was easy and close. Our excursion was from 3pm - 7pm and it was lovely! We were lucky enough to be able to reserve that same day. Captain Russ and his wife Susan are two of the nicest and most geniune people we've met in a long time. Our friends have gone back home w/ some amazing memories of South Florida, thanks in large part to this sail. And we hope to sail on the Captain Sir again very soon.

“An Awesome Day to Remember! Outstanding...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

My husband and I just returned from a full day sail charter aboard Captain Sir, out of Key Biscayne Florida.

With Russell and Susan’s help we arranged the day as a total surprise for my husband on our 40th wedding anniversary. Russell and Susan both played along with surprising my husband almost to the moment they were ready set sail. Then we had to break the news as I wished my husband happy anniversary and we were the sailing guest for a full day, all meals and hospitality provided by gourmet chef, Captain Russell and first mate Susan.

Since we are past owners of an Island Packet Yacht, we knew exactly what we wanted in a sailboat charter – however Captain Sir exceeded our expectations. We also wanted a exclusive private charter with no other people’s conversation or distractions on our special day (40th Wedding Anniversary). The time flew by and we had a full day of private coves to anchor by for snacks/meals and a fair wind (25-30 knots) to sail with our toes hanging off the stern in the clear warm waters as we sailed and anchored off Key Biscayne with dolphin playing along side Captain Sir's bow.

A spectacular sunset was toasted from our anchorage in Hurricane Cove followed by the added benefit of a full moon for our dinner in the cockpit after sunset. We enjoyed key lime pie, made by Captain Russell as we motor-sailed to the Miami skyline lights. Miami at night, by water was spectacular. From there it was already late in the evening and we sailed slowly back to Crandon Marina to Captain Sir's slip.

What spectacular memories we have taken home. Russell and Susan Boulay and are the perfect host to charter with for a few hours or several days on their Island Packet 46. The food was outstanding, the yacht is spotless, in top shape and the Captain with his first mate are the perfect mix of professional, personable and knowledgeable hosts.

Oh one last comment, if you love stone crab place your order with the Captain Russell, he knows how to find super sized stone crab. Awesome!

Do yourself a favor - take a full day crewed Charter...

“The Magic of Five Days at Sea”
5 of 5 stars 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
