Our family spent four days on the Freedom Fargo as a "live-aboard" in Feb 2017, hosted by skipper Alf, and his partner, Joy. Those four days were some of the best of our lives and one of the most indelible memories we'll ever have as a family. We're a family of five - including kids ages 12, 10, and 6... More

Thank you so much for the brilliant review. Joy and I are really happy that our work is so well received. I have to thank you as well for booking the crewed version of the cruise, which gave me the opportunity to sail again with my beloved Joy. It was a real pleasure to sail with your family and we...

I sailed with Alf in March 2017 on the competent crew course. Alf’s style is relaxed and rather than make it a class room type experience the tuition was made on a rolling basis as we went through the cruise and the situations and subjects arose. That suited me just fine. Alf tailored the trip to the wants and desires... More

Thank you very much for the excellent review. I'm always happy when my rather practical approach to tuition is appreciated and I'm glad that it met your expectations. I hope to receive you and your family on the boat in the near future and...no music from my old band, promise :-) Best regards Alf More

My partner and I did a 5 day live aboard competent crew course with Alf on Freedom Fargo. It was brilliant! Alf is an uber experienced and very knowledgeable skipper. He taught us so much over the 5 days, with a huge emphasis on practical experience. That means getting stuck in and learning as you go rather than sitting around... More

I did the four hour intro to sailing course with Alf, and it was a ton of fun. Alf was super patient throughout, and was a pleasure to learn from. Highly recommend taking a lesson if you're looking for something fun to do on the water.

We had a great time sailing around the nearby Koh Nang Yuan. He even altered the route as we wanted to see these small islands in the sunset, which was no problem for him (also because the wind that day made it possible, of course). The boat was very nice and even his little daughter joined us and made the... More

We did the 4 day sailing trip around Ang Thon Marine Park with Alf and Frank and had the best time. Alf is a great captain and you feel totally safe the whole time. Frank is super as well, and he is an amazing chef. I can't believe how well we ate when we were on that boat. The accomodations... More

We did the 4 day joint sailing trip to the Marine Park and had a wonderful experience. The pick-up from the hotel is reliable, comfortable and easy. We were brought to the boat and were able to leave our big bags with the office and thus only take our day packs aboard - very convenient and free of charge just... More

The four of us had a blast sailing on the Hobie Cat for a few hours one afternoon. Would be a great way to explore the island too if we had rented for longer. Alf was really nice and helped us rig up the boat before setting off. I would only really recommend renting if you have some prior sailing... More

We met Frank by chance when we went for a swim on one of the beaches on the back side of the island, and if it wasn't for that, there is a fair to good chance I would have completely missed the shop. Alf was super helpful getting the boat sorted and recommendations of places to visit. I would recommend... More
