I cannot recommend Adventure Sail and Tony enough! We had a weekend getaway planned for my sisters's 30th birthday and booked with Tony for a 4 hour sail around the area. It was spectacular! Tony was extremely generous and kind with his time and his knowledge of the surrounding area and waters. He was accommodating after we were running late from the ferries and let us adjust our start time last minute!

Tony, thank you for making us feel at home and immediately comfortable on the boat. You are thoughtful, professional, considerate and a kind and gentle soul.

We loved sharing stories, music and laughter with you and the experience ended up being the highlight of our trip.

Thank you Tony for a special memory we will treasure forever. We will be back!!

Honestly loved this experience so much, it was a great time for me and my friends. Tony was very kind to us and provided us with warm blankets, snacks and drinks. Most importantly he was very entertaining and a kind soul. He made the experience all the most fun! Me and friends loved this experience so very much and we hope to do it next time we come to visit. Definitely recommend for a fun time or even a family trip. Five star all around for me!!

This is the first time ever I am doing something other than fishing at sunshine coast . When my wife booking the trip , we were hoping to have a very relaxing experience after some intense battle with lingcod and rockfish the day before. Tony was great and really work with us to ensure that we had the best experience possible. The weather on the day we booked the trip was not good, high wind and lots rain. Tony suggested us to move the sailing to the following morning as it is great info to be sunny.

My group has 4 adults, 3 kids age of 16,11 and 9. We also has a 8 month old infant. Everyone had a great time. My kids had a chance to try to help out on setting the sail and Tony was able to keep everyone engaged which isn't a easy job when comes to kids.

I would totally do it again next time when we are in Sunshine coast.

This is an experience you will not regret .

Thank you Tony for the amazing memory on behalf of my family and friends.

This year my family purchased a 4 hour cruise with Skipper Tony aboard his beautiful 40ft sailboat as my Father’s Day gift.
Tony has great knowledge and pride of the spectacular scenery and islands that we passed through during the sail.
The boat is well equipped for a safe family / group outing and we are sure to make this an annual family trip going forward.

We would highly recommend this to visitors or BC locals like ourselves looking for adventures out on the water.

Sailing with skipper Tony is an all-around delight! He is a seasoned boating professional who provides genuine warm hospitality with an extra touch of opportunistic sight seeing and engaging local stories.

Our afternoon of sailing around Howe Sounds was a definite highlight of the summer. Skipper Tony is an incredible guide - we promoted him to Admiral by the end of the trip - and we would highly recommend it to anyone!

If you are looking for an amazing sailing trip Tony is the person you need to contact. Look no further.
We did 4 hour sailing trip and already looking forward to book another one before summer ends. Beautiful scenery & wonderful way to spend the day. Boat is absolute beauty, very comfortable & clean.
Tony is one of the most amazing person I've ever met in my entire life. He is very kind, genuine, informative and very accommodating and happy to re-schedule the trip if the Mother Nature doesn't cooperate =) We also spent the night on the boat after our trip and that was such a unique experience. I highly recommend this trip to anyone.

Legendary afternoon with legendary Skippy Tony. We had a lovely evening with a group of friends celebrating a birthday with Tony. He was friendly, professional and really made our afternoon a memorable one. Plus what a beautiful sail boat! Highly recommended!!

I can't say enough about how fantastic both Tony and the experience were. Firstly, I only had four days in Vancouver and wanted to see the highlights of the city but was short on time. Apart from walking around the city and Stanley Park, I wanted to do something leisurely that also gave me a taste of Canadian's beautiful natural scenery. Sailing seemed to fit the description of what I was looking for and Tony was the best skipper I could have asked for.

He was patient in communicating with me over multiple emails to ensure that I had the right experience, he was willing to work with my tight timeline and he has a great personality. I can't thank him enough for his patience as I was asking many questions and he answered them all one by one.

We sailed in the morning from Gibsons after I took a ferry over from Horseshoe Bay. The morning weather was perfect, which really enhanced the experience. I felt that we were in safe hands for the entire time. We ended the sailing slightly early and Tony was really generous and gave us some other options of local sights so that we didn't have excessive hours at the ferry building for the return ferry trip from Gibsons to Horseshoe Bay.

I would certainly do this again when I am next in Vancouver. It is a great way to see the city if you have 6-8 hours for a short day trip out of Vancouver. My family and I had a great time and many wonderful photos to remember the trip.
