We had a great time. Captain David is super friendly , he took us to a sand bar just off Key Biscayne so that we could take a swim. It was a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend to take this tour around Biscayne Bay.

Too many mishaps
Kevin_B, Mar 2024
Guide enlisted rookie to captain boat, had a hard time navigating back. Sail ripped, needed new one. One rudder broke, needed to be towed into dock. Still had fun, but lots of room for improvement for this tour company.

Amazing Eco Tour Sailing Experience
Kristy_F, Mar 2024
Amazing eco tour and our first sailing experience! Captain David was so cool and the low tide allowed us to explore sandbars and see various marine life!

Amazing day on the water with David!
Ella_H, Mar 2024
We did the intimate sailing adventure with David at 3pm (for sunset) and it was fantastic! Coordinating was so easy (they're so communicative via text), and David was a perfect captain. He was so knowledgeable about Miami, had amazing stories to share, and taught us how to sail. Felt very safe, and the day was such a thrill. Would highly recommend!
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Thsnk You Ella for your lovely review, glad to hear you enjoyed the stories and the educational part of learning to sail !

Sailing experience
Angie_D, Mar 2024
First off our captain was super nice and welcoming his name was Juan! It was a small boat so you are with a small group which I enjoyed! It was just my daughter and I and we were with another couple. Juan took a lot of pictures and videos with his iPhone so we didn’t have to take ours out and risk dropping it in the water. After about an hour of sailing he stopped at a sandbar and he provided us with snacks (chips and guac and chocolate chip cookies)! We saw dolphins and some puffer fish during our experience! This was overall a great experience and would definitely do it again!
Great Trip around the bay!
Kevin_D, Mar 2024
Great boat captain and got to see dolphins! We felt safe on the water and the captain did a great job of narrating the experience with sailing info and facts about Miami.

Sailing adventure
Chris_M, Feb 2024
We had a great time with Juan and our fellow sailors. The weather was perfect for a sail across the bay to a sandbar. Juan was a great captain with lots of knowledge. We had some good wind for sailing but hit a calm spot on the way back - but that's sailing for you! Also we arrived as planned at 10am but it was a late start (nearly 11) which meant we were a bit tight for time at the other end (even though we were offered the full 3.5 hours a few guests had to get back). Overall though a really wonderful adventure and a great trip.
Great chill sailing trip
Ash_J, Feb 2024
Great sailing trip! Even with tricky wind, Capt David gave us a fun tour of the bay. We had a nice picnic, and gorgeous view of the sunset.

Wonderful Sail
Paige_M, Jan 2024
Our excursion with Captain David was an amazing backdrop to a very special birthday celebration. The day was beautiful and our host both knowledgable and fun to be with. Highly recommended and will be back if ever in the Miami area in the future.

Amazing Experience. Must do Miami Experience
MAHESH_V, Jan 2024
It was such an amazing experience to just sail away and disconnect from the crowd for a couple of hours. My teen son and I had an blast and wished we did this tour sooner as we always come to Miami/FLL for a break. Our captain JP was very friendly and shared a lot of information in Gene about sailing, the Biscayne Bay where we sailed around. The cold plunge in the sand bar was so refreshing. We'll absolutely do it again with my entire family in our next visit.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank you Mahesh, it was a a pleasure sailing with you and your son. See you next time when you come with the whole family
Great experience
yansu_w, Jan 2024
Davide is a very passionate and experienced captain, he shared with us a lot of interesting boat stories and sail life. The whole sail catamaran is 100% wind driven, meaning the captain needs to know very well how to guide the boat. Really unique experience. At this time of year, after sunset it’s quite cold on the boat, so make sure you bring a thick jacket along! I highly recommend this tour to everyone who enjoys the outdoor and sail experience.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thank You Yansu for your lovely review !
Incredible views and experience!
AnaCatharina_L, Dec 2023
I reserved this adventure as a birthday suprise to my fiancé and we had a blast! David was super nice, gave us some amazing information about the area, let us “drive” the hobby cat, and stop at a gorgeous little island for the view. There were drinks and snacks available too. All in all, an excellent experience! Highly recommend!
