What a great experience! Gordon was very welcoming. Felt very much like a private sailing lesson paired with beautiful scenery. We left feeling as though we made new friends!

I was very happy to show our wonderful ocean vistas to such a fine young couple from Winnipeg. One of the things I like about my adventure tours is that I have the opportunity to introduce people to the sport of sailing.
We found them to be very accommodating with our booking and gave us many options and plenty of time ahead of our date when there were changes to our booking. The sights from the boat were stunning and worth every penny. Highly recommend this activity!

We booked last minute (less than 24h before), yet Captain Kerr had a wonderfull trip on the lake planned for us the next day at 10 am! As others said, the lunch he served us was great, with is now seemingly famous homemade, homegrown salsa...More
My husband and I spent a delightful few hours with Cap't Kerr (he jokingly introduced himself as Cap't Kirk), which was indicative of the humor he displayed throughout our sailing adventure. He was very informative about sailing, the area and gave us a recommendation for...More
