My fiancee and I went to Port A for our first anniversary. We were lucky enough to get the Stray Cat booked for a couple of days of fun and had a close friend join us for the adventure. Captain Chester Ruder was amazing to watch, while working the sails and steering the boat with his feet! My favorite part was seeing the baby dolphin, too cute!! He was highly entertaining with his guitar and songs! Plus the man can cook a steak to perfection!! We cannot wait until we can return for more fun! Thanks for the memories Capt. Chester!

Wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this but wanted something different to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary. Unfortunately the weather interfered when we originally booked but Captain Chester graciously worked with us to reschedule. Chester and Vicki were great hosts. We enjoyed the trip, great views and wonderful dinner. (Still trying to recreate the stuffed mushrooms at home.) Would definitely recommend Stray Cat Sailing adventures for a dinner or sunset cruise. Can't wait to return next year and see the additional remodeling they have planned for the boat.

Captain Chester is a good guy. We all enjoyed his friendly laid back attitude. His rescue dog Bella added fun to our sail. Hope to sail with him again. My wife and daughter enjoyed singing along to his guitar. Good karma.

We took our 3 children on their first charter and loved it! Captain Chester was great-very personable, knowledgeable about the area and safe. The boat is not big with a small seating area in the stern and the bow has a hard flat top to lounge on. I was a little freaked watching my 5 year old walk along the 12-18" wide walkway to get to the bow but he didn't seem to mind. Didn't see many dolphins that day but that's out of Chester's control. We anchored off an island and swam/searched for hermit crabs. This is much better than the large dolphin tours which take dozens of people at a time. We had the boat all to ourselves. Chester had tons of snacks and a cooler full of drinks. Our family won't forget the experience.

We've taken catamaran tours before and this one is somewhere in the middle. Decent closed cabin older (1986) 30 foot or so boat. Captain Chester has good gab and his mixed yellow Lab is fun to watch spotting dolphin. Sights are not what you see in the Caribean, but okay. We brought our own pre cooked shrimp and alcoholic beverages and the Captain provides ice, water & soft drinks.
