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 had a great day on the water! Captain Gordon taught us about sailing, local culture and some history on the area as well. An absolute must do if you're in the area!!
