    Unforgettable experience

    We took sunset tour with our 9 months old. Enjoyed every second of our trip. Thanks to Shane we had a chance to watch Dolphins, stop and swim by the crab island and take beautiful pictures of the sunset. We will definitely recommend it to our friends!

    Most memorable excursion while on vacation!

    Captain Shane was a most excellent host and incredibly gracious with the kids. We didn't really know what to expect, so all was a surprise for us. We were lucky enough to see several pods of dolphin that swam right up to the boat and then were able to take a dip in the ocean from a small beach area. We would have liked to have been more out in the ocean rather than the little inlet area but with an anxious child and not very clear expectations, we can't complain. The sailboat was beautiful and nicely accommodated the four of us. Captain Shane was very interesting and was easy to ask questions to and learn from. Well worth the money and ended up being a trip we will not soon forget! Thank you Captain Shane!

    An Excursion to Remember

    A BIG thanks to Sherri & Captain Shane for making our first sailing trip one to remember! We encountered bad weather on our original date, but they were very accommodating & got us in the very next evening - both were very friendly & easy to talk to about the area & what it had to offer. The sail boat along w/a house boat they have for rental, have been beautifully restored & brought back to life for that vintage look & feel. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to get away from the crowds & wanting that personal experience - it's a must do adventure.

    Sunset cruise

    I really did not know what expect with this being my very first sunset cruise. Sherie was the coordinator who kept in constant contact with me via text and phone. She was very sweet and made sure we were very informed about our trip. Shane was our Capt, and was a very sweet and knowledgeable guide. We highly enjoyed our time with him. It was very romantic and scenic. Shane also provided us with a speaker for us to play our own music off of. We had an amazing time. I would highly recommend the Private Sailing Excursion, well worth the money I spent. We would totally do it again. Thanks Sherie and Shane!!!

    Wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary!

    Truly enjoyed our excursion. The sailboat was beautiful and the Captain accommodating and very knowledgable about the area, sailing and boat. This was to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary and it was thoroughly wonderful. We saw dolphins and they allowed us to bring our dog along. Would recommend it as well as plan to do it again next time we are in the area.

    Great time!

    My husband and I had a great time sailing with Captain Shane. He made sure we got to see the sunset and was more than accommodating. His dog Ollie was also such a great companion on our trip!

    Family Sailing

    We booked the event a month in advance. Everything went smoothly. Had a great time! Would definitely do it again. Recommend taking some snorkeling gear so you can stop and jump in the water by the jetties! The NICEST couple own and operate the business. Hats off to Emerald Coast Sailing.

    Awesome!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out sailing! My family of 5 went out with Captain Shane "Halen" and First Mate Sherie. The boat is beautiful and the sunset even more so. Shane and Sheri are very hospitable and love what they do. We would recommend the sunset cruise to families as well as couple who want a romantic evening away. Hope I get to sail with them again!

    Disappointing & Unsatisfactory

    Over-priced/poor value. Boat was in Very poor shape, maintenance & cleanliness, and "amenities" (food & beverage, etc.) were a a joke. This was a birthday present disaster.

    I'm just so curious why this review was manifested almost a year after the trip. I'm truly sorry for your experience. My only defense was that I was living overseas for 4 months and had just returned and was unable to quickly catch up on the winter work that my mates and I do, i.e.. varnishing all the wood, and the million other activities that we do to make Emerald Lady look great. As for the value, our company is one the best priced trips on the Harbor. We understand the importance of having a private trip versus the "cattle cars" as we call them. So, with that fact in mind, we try to remain competitive because we also understand that money does not grow on trees. Maybe it was cold that day or we didn't see dolphins. As for the snacks, we usually do the same thing every trip. Perhaps...

I talked with him about this trip, which happened almost a year ago, and he couldn't remember the specific trip.
