Reviews of 6 Passenger Private Day Time Sailing Cruise

1st Sail
We had an amazing sailing experience! The crew were friendly and gave us the freedom to enjoy being out on the open water. The sunset view was spectacular & a dolphin came to visit on our way back to port. This was a great way to end our vacation & it was everyone’s #1 event.

Lovely afternoon sail
James and Matthew were awesome and we had a wonderful 3 hour afternoon cruise. They took us out into the Gulf waters and the swells were lovely. It was all very enjoyable and I highly recommend them! The boat was beautiful!

Best Family Trip!
We chose a sailing adventure because we’d never done it before. Sailing at sunset and seeing dolphins was just a plus! It was so peaceful with an amazing breeze; both my husband and I almost fell asleep! Both captains were amazing! So friendly and laid back, very chill and made the whole trip even better! They taught us a little about sailing and what to expect before we even got on board! Highly recommend regardless of who you’re with. It was beautiful!

Fair Winds Sailing Co was great!
I booked the sailing trip for me and my best friend for her bachelorette party. We are such chill people, so being able to just drink our wine and relax as we sat at the front of the boat was amazing. The captain was so great, very funny, and very nice. He let us bring the sails down towards the end, and he gave us some recommendations on where to go and what to do in Destin. Hands down the best experience ever.

A little underwhelming
I had high hopes for a great experience after reading the reviews. I was looking forward to an engaging captain and learning more about the history of the bay and more about sailing, per the description online. Unfortunately the captain (who never introduced himself so I don’t know his name) was really quiet and only talked when we asked him questions. I also slipped and fell and he did not seem concerned. The positives were that we did see dolphins and my boys enjoyed sailing.

This was our first time on a sailboat. And it was amazing! I highly recommend this experience. Captain Harbor was very informative and an experienced sailor. The gulf is calm and the day was hot but beautiful. This is definitely something we will do again.

A true sailing experience. Very different from pontoon boat. Sailed into gulf. Got splashed by water. Different from any other experience.

Awesome sailing trip
We saw dolphins, turned the motor off and sailed around the gulf. The captain was amazing and was very knowledgeable about the area. He was great to talk to and we learned a lot about the surrounding area. The whole family said it was the most fun they had in Destin. I highly recommend taking the time for a relaxing sail.

Nice first time experience, the only bad part is that we experienced the most beautiful sunset driving around in the harbor instead of the lake. I suggest them if they are in a hurry to leave at 5:30-6 pm to get the sunset on the Lake not in the harbor.

Captain James was great. We loved the 2 hour sunset sail. Parking in the Destin harbor was definitely not easy and cost $20.

10/10 would sail again
We had a great time! James and Matt were super friendly, helpful, and informative and made the whole experience very enjoyable. The view at sunset was amazing and made for a very relaxing and memorable evening that was a highlight of our trip to Destin.

This was a very chill relaxing experiece. We saw several dolphins and our captain was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. The only reason I couldn't give 5 stars was the seating on the boat. It was a long trip with nothing to lean up against.

Just okay …
We unfortunately didn’t see any dolphins (I know out of their control but it does list 98% rate so I guess we are the 2%) and was hoping the captain would of been more interactive. He didn’t say much unless we asked.

Highly recommend
We truly enjoyed our sunset sailboat cruise and although it started off a little rough because we couldn’t find the slip, parking and traffic was horrific we finally found our captain. The boat needs some TLC but the experience and captain Taylor were awesome. I only wish it started earlier so we could have had more daylight.

Intimate Sunset Cruise
The sunset and dolphin cruise provided by our wonderful Captain Taylor and his first mate was the epitomy of our Florida vacation. The sails raised and billowed over the gulf waters as we were gifted with dolphin sightings, and sunset hues of oranges and purples along the horizon, simply breathtaking. We found ourselves just outside of a sailing race and learned terms and techniquies explained patiently for the Captain. The four of us will never forget this wonderful addition to our vacation on the panhandle of Florida and Captain Taylor provided us a relaxing and skillful sail on the 32' Westsail. I am enamoured with the beauty of the ocean, coastline and inlets of the Florida panhandle and hope to return soon. I'm about the views and experience, not the partyboats, tikihuts or blasters. Looking for an intimate experience, this is the answer. I'm excited to sail with them again next year.
