I don't give a lot of poor reviews and was looking forward to this sailing. However, we never got the chance and I think others should know this could happen to them too. The tickets for this cruise were a Christmas gift from our children (purchased in December 2016 and we prepared to use it in April 2017 while on... More

If you want to take a turn at the wheel they also welcome that. Two of us sat in the comfy bean bag chairs at the front of... More

We had an amazing sailing experience this morning! Captain Dove and Tim truly made this experience unforgettable. From accommodating us at the last minute to answering our many sailing questions on board, we are beyond thankful. We traveled with our two children (who now want to be sailors); thank you for "showing them the ropes." This is a must-do for... More

My wife, my brother and his wife took the sunset cruise on March 25th. Captain Dove and her husband Captain Tim did everything to make the sail enjoyable. There were free drinks and snacks too! Coming out of the jetty, there were at least one pod of dolphins which came up to the boat and we spent some time enjoying... More

We decided to do this excursion the day we booked and are thrilled that we did! Captain Dove and her husband Tim were genuine, fun, and just really great people. The two hour excursion was perfect. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Venice!

Dove and Tim and their lovely sloop showed us such a good time. A great value and a "don't miss" excursion. I loved the sailing, the refreshments, the water, the sun, the dolphins. Just do it!
