The best day of your vacation will be spent cruising aboard your private sailing sloop, the New Moon ...The New Moon is a beautifully appointed, fully equipped 39 ft. sailing vessel with full facilities and enclosed head for your comfort. You'll see the islands from the fresh and exciting perspective of Gulf and Bay waters, the dolphins with their perpetual smiles, swimming beside the boat, the manatees barely showing themselves and the sea otters playing around the docks are all just a part of our world.

We celebrated our 45th Anniversary with an absolutely fantastic Sunset Cruise aboard New Moon with Capt Mick. Beautiful scenery and perfect positioning to to catch the "Green Flash" at sunset. Lucky us! And then a bit of star-gazing on the way back. Capt. Mick is wonderful and a master of the till.

We had a nice sail on the New Moon. The boat is an old classic vessel and it needs some repairs and spiffing up, but she sailed nicely. The Captain was nice and settled in after a bit. The sunset was amazing.

Captain Mick & New Moon Sailing is the best sailing experience you'll have in the Sanibel/ Captiva area. Mick has been sailing these waters for decades and always engages his passengers in a way that will be unforgettable. Dolphin are almost always seen & on our trip, we also saw sting rays. Don't hesitate to call, you won't regret a... More

Captain Mick is a delight as a sailor, a teacher and a companion. He thrilled our kids and empowered them with the delights of running a sailboat. He explained the gulf and the spirit of sailing with as much enthusiasm and clarity as he did the physics of sailing. He and the New Moon are to be sought out and... More

We already have some sailing experience. But spending a day with Mick still taught both of us new things. I've read some of the reviews & he gets a little bad press about the condition of his boat but if your looking for a captain with lots of experience who can teach you how to sail look no further. He... More

Captain Mick was right on time even thought he was recovering from being ill. He was very patient teaching a first-time sailor who has trouble knowing his right from his left. Very enjoyable experience.

Booked our wedding months before - contacted Capt Mick many times by Skype and email - and even though he had family problems (his dad was quite ill) he had plenty of time for us and our arrangements. We met him the day before the wedding - great guy and all was arranged for us. We arrived earlier than our... More

Wanted to do something different with family, never went sailing before. Captain mick had our teens working the sails and gave us a basic sailing lesson, don't know if capt. Mick is just lazy and gets others to do the work or if he likes to teach others how to sail, maybe a little of both. But we had a... More

06/17/ 2014 - Capt. Mick was very personable. Loves to teach, had us sailing the boat by dolphins and manatee as soon as we left the dock. I would highly recomend this trip and captain to any one from young to old. Very thoughtfull and knowlegeble captain. Nothing like skipping across the waives silently with the wind in your hair!...
