A Word From Our Past Guests

It’s such a pleasure to get to sail with so many wonderful people from all over Florida, the United States, and the world. We appreciate the opportunity to show them around the Emerald Coast and be a part of their trip to Destin. Here’s what a few of our guests have said about the experience:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Would definitely recommend Captain Bill and his boat for a great sailing experience. Captain Bill was so very accommodating and even cooked for us while we enjoyed relaxing, taking in the views, socializing with friends, visiting Crab Island, and learning a little about what it takes to sail a boat. This adventure will be talked about for a long time and we will definitely do it again.

Jason Tatro

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We had great experience with Captain Bill Anderson. My wife and I brought our 3 kids ages 10 to 15. Everyone had a fun trip. We motored up to the dolphin watch area and saw dolphins right away, plenty of time to take pictures. We then snorkeled and the kids enjoyed seeing the hermit crabs crawling around their feet. We finished the sail without the motor, just the wind in the sails. Very relaxing sitting up front with your toes in the water. Would definitely recommend taking this 3 hour cruise rather then being packed into a large boat with 50 or more strangers.

Matt Knepper

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Our sunset cruise with Captain Bill was one to remember. We enjoyed every second of it! My husband & I took this cruise celebrating our honeymoon and Captain Bill made this experience special for us. Super welcoming Captain & an even more awesome boat. If you’re ever in Destin, make sure you take this cruise!
