We had a wonderful time. Tony is an excellent teacher. Doesn’t just tell you to do something, he explains why each thing is that way. I would go back out again any time!

Tony was very knowledgeable about sailing and was a good teacher. The conditions were great, which added to a lovely time in the Harbour.

This was an awesome experience, we spent a beautiful, sunny day sailing around the Bedford Basin and learning so much about sailing and sailboats. Tony is an excellent host and it felt like we were hanging out with one of our friends for the afternoon while "learning the ropes" and listening to his incredible experiences. There was great conversation and lots of laughs!

The trip with Tony and company was extremely fun and educational. Having no sailing background, Tony does a fantastic job engaging each party with a hands on role with thorough explanations. If getting involved isn't your cup of tea that's fine, this experience itself is worth it strictly for the breathtaking views you'll only experience from being out on the ocean.

Book this now! Do not miss this experience. An incredible afternoon on the water aboard a beautiful 33ft sailing boat cruising around Bedford basin with Tony. Wonderful to learn the basics of sailing from someone who is exceptionally good at what they do and are clearly passionate about it. Tony is very friendly and personable and we were made to feel very welcome. We learned a lot in our short time and felt like we were hanging out with a friend by the end of the day. Truly a good time all around.
