I had booked this cruise because our daughter and her fiancé were coming to visit. I easily made the reservations for a sunset cruise with Tim over the phone. Upon arrival at the dock, Captain Dove and First Mate Tim were warm and friendly, making us feel special. The cruise lasted two hours, during which we were served light snacks... More

We sailed with Dove and Tim today and had a great experience. They are professional yet very easy going. I highly recommend Sail Venice and think it is a good value for anyone seeking a fine sailing experience! I would do it again anytime!

The Captain and her mate provided excellent instruction and very patiently went over all the details that I didn't know. As a result of their tutelage, I am a better sailor than I was before. Their hospitality was also second to none.

Could not have been happier with this experience. Conditions were ideal for a smooth, peaceful sunset sail. The couple that own the boat could not have been nicer. Same with our fellow guests. It was like going sailing with friends. Drinks and snacks provided. Highly recommend.

We had a great time with the nice people from SailVenice. They provide beverages and snacks, along with photos posted on Facebook. The Gulf near Venice is an ideal location for an afternoon sail. They even let me man the helm!

We took the afternoon sail. Perfect wind and sunshine. Tim and Dove shared information about the area, their sailboat and themselves. We had snacks, beer, champagne and fresh cookies. We concluded the trip with a porpoise following us into the bay. We were very comfortable with the sail and hope to sail with them again.

We had a fantastic sunset cruise aboard the SailVenice sailboat. Everything was perfect. The crew tried very hard to make this a great event; offering drinks and snacks, chatting about their background, playing music of our choice on the sound system, letting us take the helm, etc, etc.. During the sunset they took a number of pictures that were later... More
