I called and spoke directly with Captain Ed. He advised the day we should book our tour as I explained I was bringing my 75 year old mother and 85 year old dad along. Captain Ed helped my parents enter and exit the boat. We all had a wonderful afternoon of sailing. Will go out with Spice Sailing Charters again!

We saw this charter in a tourist map, called and spoke directly with Captain Ed. He gave us the options of cruises and availability after checking with family we booked a sunset cruise. Ed was waiting fir us when we pulled in, got in Zig Zag and we were off in to the gulf headed for the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.... More

Captain Ed is a fantastic host. He will provide as much information and conversation as you would like or just allow you to relax and enjoy. He basically takes you in and out of the marina and you are able to steer the boat the entire time. He is very casual and easy going yet he is ever vigilant and... More

Ed took us on a wonderful sail from Anna Maria Island to Egmont Key and around the Bay until sunset. My wife and I were the only couple on the boat and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Ed gave us some sailing tips and information as we cruised around. We both took a turn at the wheel and got a... More

Went out with Captain Ed brushing up on our sailing skills. We are both ASA 103 certified but with Captain Ed's experience he always teaches us more through his wisdom. He is so patient and has so many stories, a true sailor! Highly recommend Spice Sailing Charters on the Zig Zag with Captain Ed no matter what you're experience or... More

While vacationing in Anna Maria we booked a sunset cruise with Captain Ed. Reservation process was seamless. His boat was spotless! We headed out to see the sunset and we each had a chance to steer which was really cool. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to storms in the area but we enjoyed the time we had out... More

We found this through Trip Advisor and booked while we were at AMI....I am surprised I have not found this on previous trips we have been on the island. From the start of contacting Ed to the trip it was an awesome experience. We started with a little rain but Ed made sure we were comfortable by putting up the... More

We took the sunset tour with Captain Ed. The sunset was beautiful from open water. Even more beautiful than from the beach! Captain Ed is very knowledgeable about the area and sailing. He also will make you feel relaxed and comfortable the second you meet him. He encourages each person to steer the boat. Giving you instructions on how to... More

Captain Ed is very knowledgeable about the water and is willing to share with you. He encourages everyone to steer the sailboat. I had never been on a sailboat and learned much tonight on the sunset cruise. Put us in perfect position for sunset, took us out to where dolphins had been seen and we did see one. Very reasonable...
