I've gotten to sail on both the Olad and the Owl, and while both are great experiences I love the smaller, more intimate setting on the Owl. They cap it at 6 guests for the Owl, which still feels a bit tight, but as soon...More

My party of four enjoyed a wonderful sail on Olad, on a spectacular afternoon! Captain Chris and Mate Max were attentive, friendly, professional and safety conscious. Highly recommended for all ages. The comfortable cockpit was particularly appropriate for elderly guests.

We had over 40 aboard the Olad for a wedding party, plenty of room especially if you are family.
