Captains Heather and David are awesome hosts and their sailboat is a beauty. I placed a charter for a birthday party and surprise proposal with them. They were super attentive to our needs; they helped with planning, provided historical insight about the marina, prepared a beautiful charcuterie spread, and nursed a few seasick folks.

They love the sea, they love their boat and it shows in their enthusiasm to share their experiences with everyone they encounter. If you want to make memories or just have a relaxing trip out to sea, you can't go wrong with choosing their services.




We had an amazing sailing experience with Heather and her husband. Exceeded my expectations for this corporate event. Communication before, during and after was excellent. Catering was delicious including fresh fruit and vegetables from a local farmer's market. The team hopes to schedule another say for longer duration with Heather. We even managed to see several dolphins once we left the marina.




AMAZING TRIP!!! My friends and I CANNOT wait to get out on the water with Heather again!!! Best Day Ever!!!
