We loved our trip on the sailboat with Captain Ed. We did the Sunset Cruise on New Years Eve. What a dream to start/end the year with such a memorable trip. All 3 of us got to steer the road and Capt. Ed was very patient in teaching us. My husband loves all things mechanical and boats so they had... More

Captain Ed was a wonderful host and such a beautiful boat. We was each given the chance to drive the boat and was given so much information about a sail boat. What a great time. If you get the chance..... this is the one......

We went on a sunset cruise and couldn't be happier. Ed was a wonderful captain/host/guide. He obviously loved his mission/ "job" and was happy to share it with us. He allowed us to sail the the boat and shared his knowledge with us. So gracious and knowledgable. This was one of our most memorable vacation activities. Unbelievable rates. Don't even... More

I called and spoke directly with Captain Ed. He advised the day we should book our tour as I explained I was bringing my 75 year old mother and 85 year old dad along. Captain Ed helped my parents enter and exit the boat. We all had a wonderful afternoon of sailing. Will go out with Spice Sailing Charters again!

We saw this charter in a tourist map, called and spoke directly with Captain Ed. He gave us the options of cruises and availability after checking with family we booked a sunset cruise. Ed was waiting fir us when we pulled in, got in Zig Zag and we were off in to the gulf headed for the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.... More

Captain Ed is a fantastic host. He will provide as much information and conversation as you would like or just allow you to relax and enjoy. He basically takes you in and out of the marina and you are able to steer the boat the entire time. He is very casual and easy going yet he is ever vigilant and... More

Ed took us on a wonderful sail from Anna Maria Island to Egmont Key and around the Bay until sunset. My wife and I were the only couple on the boat and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Ed gave us some sailing tips and information as we cruised around. We both took a turn at the wheel and got a... More

Went out with Captain Ed brushing up on our sailing skills. We are both ASA 103 certified but with Captain Ed's experience he always teaches us more through his wisdom. He is so patient and has so many stories, a true sailor! Highly recommend Spice Sailing Charters on the Zig Zag with Captain Ed no matter what you're experience or... More

While vacationing in Anna Maria we booked a sunset cruise with Captain Ed. Reservation process was seamless. His boat was spotless! We headed out to see the sunset and we each had a chance to steer which was really cool. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to storms in the area but we enjoyed the time we had out... More

We found this through Trip Advisor and booked while we were at AMI....I am surprised I have not found this on previous trips we have been on the island. From the start of contacting Ed to the trip it was an awesome experience. We started with a little rain but Ed made sure we were comfortable by putting up the... More
