We did a sunset sail with Captain Alex. He took us snorkeling in the Cordelia Bank. Sailing along the Southshore of Roatan. What a fabulous relaxing afternoon!

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

sent clients out with this captain, thunder stormed all morning day of sailing. clients never went and at first he said he would refund the monies, now he has refused to refund the money! would not pay him ahead of time and certainly will never use him on Roatan again for future clients.

“icing on the cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

My family and I took a sailboat trip with Captain Alex this past week. What a awesome day. Alex made us feel so at home and comfortable. None of us have ever been on a sailboat before, He even had us steering the boat. The icing on the cake was when we saw dolfin jumping out ahead of us. I can honestly say that this day was one of the best I spent while on Roatan. Would I do it again? You bet I would!!!

“Hooked on Sailing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had a wonderful afternoon with Alex and John sailing. The group I was with were all first time sailers and we were all more than pleased. We started out sailing to the western tip and went a couple miles towards the mainland. The waves were a little rough out there making some a little seasick but once we came back towards Roatan it got a little better. Alex allowed a couple of us to sail the boat which was so much fun. While we were sailing toward the mainland we saw a school of dolphins in the distance just leaping out of the water. None of us had seen anything like it before. Alex and John were great company and we all enjoyed talking with them. Once we got back to the island we went east along the coast and found a great place to snorkel. It was some of the better snorkeling we had done on the island. We saw some great things not seen in the coral near Infinity Bay. We returned near sunset and were all so pleased with our trip. Thanks Alex and John for hooking me on sailing!

“Peaceful and Relaxing Sunset Sail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Thank you Captain Alex for the wonderful afternoon sunset sail! We got to learn a bit about the sailboat, listened to some great tunes, stopped off to snorkel and see a different type of reef and coral. Captain Alex is very experienced and easy going, which made the trip that much better. We can't wait to go for a whole day or overnight trip soon!
