Loved this experience! Everyone must try this! I learned a lot and truly enjoyed every minute! I found Mary to be very knowledgeable and knew the history of the city and everything there is to know about sailing.

Had a blast on my sailing excursion with Mary - a seasoned Captain with a wealth of knowledge she was happy to share. It was educational, entertaining, and FUN! I am definitely going again!
