    We had a wonderful afternoon with a party of 11 siblings and spouses sailing around Biscayne Bay and up close to Stiltsville. Captain Eloy and First Mate Carolina, were very pleasant and accommodating. The vessel is beautiful, well appointed and clean. I recommend the experience to locals as well as visitors to South Florida.
