Experience the joy of sailing on a private cruise aboard a beautiful 40 foot sailboat in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Offering personalized half and full day cruises, sunset cruises, weddings (the first mate is an interfaith minister and notary public), corporate team building events with multiple boats, and memorials at sea. Captain Ron's Maine built yacht has been featured in a book about the world's best sailboats. Relax and enjoy the scenery or actively participate in sailing the boat. With a lifetime of experience, Captain Ron is always happy to share his passion for sailing by teaching anyone interested in learning. His countless stories of his many adventures at sea are an added bonus. But most of all, the quiet, tranquility and sense of freedom you'll experience gliding through the water, powered by nothing but the wind, will remain with you long after you return to shore.

Captain Ron & Andrea were amazing! The day we were scheduled to go out there was a small craft advisory. Captain Ron worked with us to reschedule our cruise a few days later. The day was beautiful. We all had the opportunity at the helm. Our daughter was a natural! Andrea took pictures throughout the trip & emailed them to... More

We chose Captain Ron's sailing charter to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and to let him relive his childhood sailing days. The experience couldn't have been more perfect! Ron and Andrea couldn't have been more welcoming, charming and accommodating. When my daughter-in-law became nauseous, Andrea didn't hesitate to break out several pieces of candied ginger and cans of ginger ale.... More

My friends and I decided that we wanted to spend the afternoon on the water. We booked with Captain Ron and so happy we did! The sailboat is beautiful as you can tell by the photos. We had great conversation and stories to share throughout the day. I will be booking again and suggest you do the same.

My wife and I could not have enjoyed our experience with Captain Ron anymore than we did. Ron and Andrea are great hosts on their ship. As you can see, we were both able to man the helm and enjoy the views while out at Sea. Captain Ron and Andrea made sure that we enjoyed our endeavor by providing us... More

My family knows how much I miss sailing, so they purchased a sailing charter for my mother's day. The surprise was beyond words but the best treat of all was this beautiful vessel and knowledgeable friendly captain. We got an extra treat in that it was the FTL Airshow and what an airshow it was from the vantage point of... More

We, a family with three teenagers (15,14,12), sailed with Captain Ron and Andrea and had a wonderful half-day cruise. We learned about sailing and were able to steer the boat. Captain Ron and Andrea are fabulous hosts and were able to adjust the cruise as needed. We'll definitely will come back for another, longer cruise! Thank you for a wonderful,... More

We enjoyed an afternoon cruise on the Endurance with Captain Ron & Andrea ending with a beautiful sunset. These four hours were the highlight of our week. Ron and Andrea are gracious hosts and delightful conversationalists. Be sure to ask about their recent trip to Havana! Highly recommended.

We took a 6 hour cruise and had the most relaxing and enjoyable time on Captain Ron's boat. Captain Ron and Andrea were fantastic hosts. We, (my husband, myself and my daughters 12 and 8), had opportunities to steer, raise the sails, did some tacking, learn how to tie knots.... And of course, to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and the...
