My partner and I did a 5 day live aboard competent crew course with Alf on Freedom Fargo. It was brilliant! Alf is an uber experienced and very knowledgeable skipper. He taught us so much over the 5 days, with a huge emphasis on practical experience. That means getting stuck in and learning as you go rather than sitting around... More

I did the four hour intro to sailing course with Alf, and it was a ton of fun. Alf was super patient throughout, and was a pleasure to learn from. Highly recommend taking a lesson if you're looking for something fun to do on the water.

We had a great time sailing around the nearby Koh Nang Yuan. He even altered the route as we wanted to see these small islands in the sunset, which was no problem for him (also because the wind that day made it possible, of course). The boat was very nice and even his little daughter joined us and made the... More

We did the 4 day sailing trip around Ang Thon Marine Park with Alf and Frank and had the best time. Alf is a great captain and you feel totally safe the whole time. Frank is super as well, and he is an amazing chef. I can't believe how well we ate when we were on that boat. The accomodations... More

We did the 4 day joint sailing trip to the Marine Park and had a wonderful experience. The pick-up from the hotel is reliable, comfortable and easy. We were brought to the boat and were able to leave our big bags with the office and thus only take our day packs aboard - very convenient and free of charge just... More

The four of us had a blast sailing on the Hobie Cat for a few hours one afternoon. Would be a great way to explore the island too if we had rented for longer. Alf was really nice and helped us rig up the boat before setting off. I would only really recommend renting if you have some prior sailing... More

We met Frank by chance when we went for a swim on one of the beaches on the back side of the island, and if it wasn't for that, there is a fair to good chance I would have completely missed the shop. Alf was super helpful getting the boat sorted and recommendations of places to visit. I would recommend... More

We met Alf through a mutual friend who also owns a sailboat and was instantly intrigued about his sailing travels across the world. I know close to nothing about sailing but felt absolutely safe and secure sailing with Alf (and his partner, Frank) - I mean who wouldn't, this man sailed the Pacific! We took the boat out around midday... More

It was our best day in the island We went out with the "Freedom Fargo", it is a beautiful and easy sailing boat. We sailed our way out the main bay and we headed to a really quiet and small bay were we went for our first snorkeling session. Alf and Frank gave us tips to fully enjoy it. Alf... More
