Our 3 hour trip was good from the point of view that we made it good. We arrived as scheduled to find no one at the boat, so we sat on the dock and ate our sandwiches. We called the number, but could hear the phone was on the boat, and Ward was not. When he did arrive, he barely acknowledged us, stepped over us with out saying a word and when I asked what we should do, he looked at me and said "get on the boat". No smiling, no welcome, no friendly chatter and all 6 of us felt like we had offended him or done something wrong. It was not a good way to start a nice day on the water. He did warm up a bit, but not much and he did let us take the tiller. He shared information only when we asked and otherwise took several phone calls while we were out sailing. I can not recommend this sailboat or captain. Also, there was no parking anywhere near by.
