We had a great trip!

We really had a fantastic evening sailing with Tim and Jan. The service was great and the sunset was awesome. We would do it again in a minute.

We celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary with a trip to Siesta Key this week. Today we went on our first time sailing experience with Jan and Tim. We did the 2-hour trip for 2 people. Cost was $280 (cash only) and any tip is donated to charity. We think this was extremely affordable considering it was a private trip for... More

We chartered a sunset cruise, my wife and I and our teenaged kids (15 and 17), and a few family friends. Tim and Jan were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. They have a great knowledge of the area and gave us an excellent tour. The yacht itself was beautiful and comfortable. This is an awesome way to... More

My husband and I were visiting Sarasota from Alaska and wanted a true Florida experience. Our hosts, Jan & Tim, provided this with a wonderful sunset sailing cruise to fill this need. Our group was small and personal attention was given to each of us. Jan & Tim made sure to engage each of us, or to give us privacy... More

The first time my family sailed with Jan and Captain Tim, we were vacationing in Sarasota. We are a large family with small children and I had accepted the idea that as a mom... vacationing with the children wasn't going to be relaxing. I was wrong! Once I stepped aboard our hosts spectacular sailboat, and met Jan, I felt completely... More

Recently my boyfriend and I cruised Sarasota Bay with two of the most hospitable and heart-warming couple Capt. Tim and Jan. We spent the afternoon enjoying the sun, and they even let me sail the boat! I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a relaxing way to enjoy an afternoon in beautiful Sarasota!

Tim and Jan are really nice hosts. I have been on the sail boat twice this week because the first time was so great I bought another party a few days later.

Our whole family had a great time on this wonderful sailing adventure. Jan and Tim were warm and friendly hosts who were eager to show us around their home waterways of Sarasota on their beautiful yacht. They are very knowledgable about the city of Sarasota, and they are passionate about making sure that visitors are always satisfied with their experience.... More
