“Great Sailing Experience for my Nephew and Niece”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

On a beautiful Sunday evening, March 19th, we were greeted by Captain Otis and First Mate Nancy and boarded the Thunderbird. They explained the safety features and provided us with optional, very comfortable seats. The kids preferred to lay directly on the trampoline and watch the water rushing just inches beneath them as we sailed smoothly across the Gulf. Nancy served beverages and a delightful snack of pepperoni, cheese crackers and fresh fruit. We were all captivated when we encountered dolphins, several times, as we sailed.
We had googled Otis and found out about his past experience on the water. He has sailed solo across the Atlantic, sailed the Pacific all the way to Fiji, worked in Anartictica---very impressive guy! Between Otis and Nancy, we were in good hands!
It was very relaxing and fun for all of us! We would definitely do it again!

“Spring Break Sailing Trip”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

During our Spring Break trip to Fort Myers Beach we decided to take a sailing charter. We selected Thunderbird Sailing based on the cool looking boat design. The weather was gorgeous the day of our trip with fairly light winds. Nevertheless, the Thunderbird was able to achieve speeds in the 7-8 knot range which felt fast on a boat of this size. Captain Otis appeared to be a very competent and experienced sailor. He shared some great stories from his experiences ocean racing off both the West Coast of Florida and Southern California. The boat felt very stable and does not lean over like a traditional sailboat. There was never any feeling of sea sickness from anyone in our family. My teenage daughter's biggest trepidation regarding the charter was potentially missing out on her precious sunbathing time on the beach. Her concerns were quickly overcome when she discovered the two large trampolines between the pontoons on either side of the boat. She could resume her sun worshipping while watching dolphins porpoise behind the boat. An overall great day!
