Four of us just completed our charter in the lower Keys with captain Gdub. We went on the Sayonara, which was a large, well equipped and really comfortable boat. The overall experience of this charter was really awesome. The four of us who went were all certified, but had not had that much real sailing experience. That all changed on... More

As four novice/intermediate skilled adult/retired sailors/neighbors, we chartered the Sayonara and Capt. G-Dub to escort us on our cruise, with the goal to further our sailing experience during a 3 day, 3 night charter. Although this trip was not booked as a teaching class, once Capt. G-Dub realized we were serious about honing and practicing our skills, the information, tips,... More

We took the Catalina 30 out for 3 days and learned a ton. This was our first bare boat experience after taking the ASA classes last year. The owner is awesome - very thorough and chill. Make sure you know where the flashlight is if you are going to anchor out.

I took a 3-day sailing class at FKS. It's great to have private classes, so you get plenty of opportunity to gain experience. Captain GDub made the class fun and was patient, letting us learn from mistakes. The boats were comfortable and fun to sail. The water is amazing and we had fantastic wind. It's right next to a great... More

My hubby and I went to FKS to get our bareboat cruising certification, and it was an amazing experience. Captain GDub likes his students to be independent and self reliant. On the second day of our class we even took the boat by ourselves and anchored overnight in the open water! This is the school where you will learn the... More

My husband and I booked a sunset sail and an overnight stay with Florida Keys Sailing. When we got to the marina, GDub had the sailboat ready. We boarded with our wine and beer and set sail. We got very lucky, and got perfect weather AND a beautiful sunset! We sailed out into the bay and watched the sunset and... More

I reserved a sailboat charter in January but could not go out due to a small craft advisory. The owner GDub volunteered 2 free future days even though I only paid for 1 because we traveled so far. Since I could not coordinate a return trip with another experience sailor, I returned with my daughter who had never sailed and... More

A perfect day for sailing, good winds and clear sailing with Captain G Dub. He is a wonderful sailor and made our stay aboard a comfortable and exciting experience. Great guy and we look forward to doing this again on our next stay. Might like to try a longer sail down to Key West. Nice clean boat and air-conditioning if... More

My wife and I went to FKS to freshen up our sailing skills and get our certifications, and we were impressed with both! The owner of FKS "Captain G Dub" was a great instructor and getting to sail on multiple boats helped solidify what he taught in the classroom portion. I would definitely recommend FKS to anyone looking to learn... More

I recently took the 7 day ASA 101,103, and 104 courses here with my SO (see the NC review). I was an absolute beginner, never having been on a sailboat, so there was a steep learning curve for me. Gdub, the owner and instructor of the school, told me what books to read ahead of time, which is very important!... More
