Captain Mike was completely pro and a great guy. He made us comfortable, told us stories, listened to ours and we had a wonderful time. It's a beautiful and well-loved boat. We highly recommend sailing with him.

Mike was very friendly from the time I start inquiring about his boat. He responds very fast!
I didn't use the bathroom so I can't comment on that but the boat was nice and the experience was great.
Mike talked to us during the trip to show us the area, he provided ice and water for us and allowed us to bring food and drinks.
We were a party of 4 and had enough room to spread out and enjoy the experience.

Our family had a great time with Captain Mike. He was able to accommodate our request right away. He took us sailing out in the ocean for 4 hours which was so relaxing. The weather was beautiful and Mike was very informative about the coast and surrounding area. He also gave a great restaurant suggestion that we tried out that evening that turned out to be one of the best meals we had during our vacation.
Thanks again Mike!

Very fun ride out on sea. I had a great time with my girlfriend on mikes boat, and it was even better when I proposed to her. Mike was a very good sport and very supportive. I highly recommend a ship ride with him anytime.
