Andrew:
Sailing is my passion, my life and my career! I caught the sailing bug at the age of eleven and have been at it ever since! I grew up in the Sea Scouts program, raced for my High School's Sailing Team all four years of school, and taught sailing (even directed the sailing program) for ten years before completing my captain's license and starting my own sailing excursion business. I love being on the water and sharing that experience with others!

Missy:
I've spent the last 18 years working in restaurants and coffee shops, but sailing captured my heart and now I can't give it up! Captain Andrew taught me everything I know, and will soon be sending me to get my Captain's License so I can continue sharing my newfound love of being out on the water.

Absolutely amazing experience (and this was my second time booking with Captain Andrew)! Andrew has an amazing knowledge of the area (celebrity mansions, massive yachts, the topography/scenery, sailing, and marine animals). I could do this 1000 times and it would not get old. We even got to sail next to a mega pod of dolphins on our trip! Highly recommend! 110% worth the value!

Andrew is truly a awesome guide to have on your sailing adventure. From the moment our 4 party group showed up at the dock you could tell how passionate Andrew is about his craft. Through out our experience on the Lively Andrews knowledge of the area and story telling poured out and our entire group hung in every word. The boat itself was amazing! (Lively) as our group walked up to the dock and spotted the boat that we would be getting on our excitement grew. Once on board you can tell how well Andrew and crew take care of the vessel. It wasn’t the most ideal weather for sailing but no one it the group noticed until Andrew turned off the motor. At that moment is when our group got to experience how alive and at the same time peaceful sailing is. I can now see why people enjoying sailing as much as they do and make it a hobby. Thank you Andrew for our captain for the day!

Sailing with Captain Andrew was so much fun!! You can tell he absolutely loves what he does and he’s very good at it. He is very knowledgeable of the area and we enjoyed listening and learning new things while on the water. Will definitely be coming back and I highly suggest everybody checks his business out!

What a fun experience! Weather wasn’t look great for our original time selection, and Andrew was very accommodating and allowing to reschedule for an earlier time. It was perfecting time for this day! Andrew

The trip was great. Sadly there was not much wind, so it ended up being more of a motor cruise than a sail cruise. Andrew was great and knowledgeable about the area and sailing.
