Took our parents with us for a most amazing sunset sail. Just enough wind to get the sails up and go. Loved chatting with Jan and Tim; they've had quite the interesting life! The sunset couldn't have been better if we had handpicked it. Great time had by all and we will be back again (and again, and again)

What a wonderful afternoon with good winds, a wonderful boat and a friendly captain and crew. We loved our sail, and the bay. Thanks for the memorable trip, for pointing out the sites and for letting us take the helm for a bit! We will definitely look you up when we return to the area!

We, two old high school friends, jumped on one of these sunset cruises into the bay at the very last moment of the day and the most awesome time! The thing was really easy and very smooth the captain was gracious and kind the other folks on board (six maximum) were just wonderful. We went up and down the bay,... More

Captain Tim and First Mate Jan did a wonderful job with a 3 hour sunset cruise in Sarasota. We were a party of 8 - cruising buddies celebrating our 10th year together as 'Cruisers', and we were ready to party! The wind was blowing at 15 or so knots, rare for late in the day. We were moving right along,... More

Captain Tim and Jan are wonderful hosts. We had a wonderful trip from the harbor into the bay. I even got to sail the boat for the return trip.

From the first call to Captain Tim to inquire and book, everything was professional, smooth and clear. Upon arrival at the boat, Tim and Jan greeted us like honored guests to their home. My wife and her sister can be a bit apprehensive about boating, but both felt comfortable and safe the entire trip. Sis even got to drive the... More

I am 22 years old and came here with my family. We chartered the sailboat for only two hours but without a doubt it made our entire trip to Sarasota. The couple who takes you out is the most heartwarming and knowledgeable couple you could ask for. They know exactly how much to say and share without being over the... More

Booked at the last minute and was surprised to get a quick response a few hours later that we were booked for an evening sail. No money required to save spot which was nice and received a text from capt the morning of to let us know it was still a good sailing day. Met the other passengers (limit of... More

My wife and I stay in Siesta Key during Feburary and March of each year. It has become an annual event for us to spend one afternoon sailing from Marina Jack in Sarasota. Some times we have family with us, other times it may be with a couple friends. We have sailed on a couple other boats but nothing has... More
