We rented a private sailboat here and had a great experience. They have a good selection of boats/sizes and staff was super helpful. Pricing was really reasonable too.

Booked on for the sunset cruise half an hour before it went. So relaxing and tranquil. The sunset was beautiful and got a special treat of seeing some dolphins coming back in!

Some amazingly large boats, sailboats and catamarans owned by celebrities. A clean area and the instructors for sailing were very good. Took a group photo which was very nice.

Save your money. This is an old boat with a disengaged staff. For your ticket you will get to sit on a boat, waiting for the sun to set over land. The staff says and does nothing. Completely boring. And you will not be offered...More

Yes, it is a group activity on one of the bigger sail boats with a professional guide/team running it. But you could rent your own boat to go solo if you wanted.
