  • What an amazing way to spend our first week as husband and wife! Thank you so much for everything. Thank the crew for the dancing, dingy adventures, and the amazing food. Everything was 5 star. Wish we could re-set and go on for one more week.

  • Bob and Deb are an amazing team and will make sure your sailing experience is everything you could ask for and more. We recently went with a different company on our last trip, and the whole time I was emailing Bob for recommendations as our crew did not have the depth and knowledge that Bob and Deb can provide. You cannot go wrong with Bob and Deb
