    We loved our trip with Capt Alberto and his wife Grace! They let us steer the boat, provided us knowledge about sailing and were overall great hosts. A few of us were nervous to steer, but they stayed so calm and provided excellent instructions. I'm already looking for another opportunity to return!

    Fun for all ages! Our family was celebrating a grandfather's 79th birthday; our group included a son and daughter in law and two grandsons, aged four and seven. Everyone loved it. Alberto let the good sailors skipper which they enjoyed; Grace patiently showed the boys the secrets below deck. The boys (and the grownups) want to go sailing again soon.
