Sorely disappointed this time around with our trip... we had previously been on the Anna Maria Island Egmont Key sail and thoroughly enjoyed it in 2016! (If I didn’t previously review that one then definitely a five star rating for that one!) We returned this...More

Carey, This does not sound like our company? I was aware of an issue with the electric propulsion / generator causing for a slow ride- but that is all. We were indeed having some technology issues with that system- and learning curve to boot. We...More
