Amazing sailboat experience Great sailboat Experience ⛵️ Highly recommended. The captain and his wife provided our family with exceptional service. We were greeted at the marina by them and quickly started our adventure on their beautiful sailboat. The weather that day allowed us to take breathtaking pictures of our family and the Miami sunset. Memories that we will cherish forever. Thank you 🙏🏻

AMAZING! I could not possibly recommend this experience more! The boat is beautiful, the bay is amazing, and Captain Luis and Mabel are an absolute delight! My wife and I mentioned we were considering buying a sailboat, and without hesitation, they allowed us to help with the rigging and sails, provided some handy tricks and knowledge, and continued to give us tips to keep in mind once we begin our own sailing journey. They are both a wealth of experience and knowledge that you should definitely utilize if you are interested. I told them that we are now dead set on buying a boat and it is 100% their fault 😀 Seriously everyone, if you are planning a trip to Miami, or even if you live there, book a trip with them. I also highly recommend that you take time to stroll to the back of the boat to converse with both Luis and Mabel, even if you aren't wanting sailing lessons, they are such delightful people with amazing stories to tell. We smiled the entire trip and can't wait to come back.

Sailing and Swimming My family and I loved every minute of our 3 hour sailing trip with Luis and Mabel. They are very friendly and knowledgable about the history of surrounding areas. They also showed us how to sail and how everything on the boat works. Mabel prepared us delicious snacks and refreshments. It was the highlight of our trip.

Relaxation and Sunset My 19 year old son and 2 of his friends were visiting for spring break and the 4 of us went sailing for 4 hours from 2:30 to 6:30 pm, and had an amazing time. Very relaxing to sail, see other boats, saw dolphins and were able to swim in No Name Harbor. Luis and Mabel were very fun to spend time with, explained the history of the area, and showed us how the sails work, great conversation. Sailing back we saw the sunset. Liked that we could book 2, 3 or 4 hours. Strongly recommend.

Relaxing on Biscayne Bay My friend and I enjoyed a four hour sail with Mabel and Luis on Biscayne Bay. The wind was calm the day we went so they needed to use the motor some. They are so friendly we immediately felt at ease and knew we were in good hands. Mabel gave frequent commentary on the sights and history of the surrounding area. They provided snacks, drinks and wine. I'm hoping to book another trip with them this spring and take my grandson.

Spectacular! Memorable day of sailing with captain Luis. Highly recommended. Capt Luis and his wife run a family friendly business....super relaxed and chill vibe. 19, 17, 15 boys manned the sails and learned something as well!

This was a birthday cruise for my wife and I. We had a great time. Everything was perfect and the views were amazing. I definitely would recommend this cruise for everyone.

Brandon

My husband and I were able to go on the 4 hour excursion with Luis and Mabel. We had such a great time and they were very hospitable hosts! Everywhere we went was beautiful views and was very relaxing. We chose the 12:00-4:00 time which was very nice because we got to stop and swim. We hope to do another tour with them the next time we come to Miami.

We chartered this sailing boat for half a day on the water with 2 families and a few teenage kids. The experience was wonderful throughout. Luis and Mabel are highly professional sailors and very friendly people. We felt an immediate connection as we had recently visited their home country Colombia. We left from coconut grove Harbour and had to use the engine to cross the bay to Nixon island where we spent a long time swimming and paddling in the water in front of splendid houses. After which Luis put the sails on and we glided silently on the sea till sunset time while enjoying the snacks kindly prepared by Mabel. very relaxing and stress free. Mabel was also kind enough to take several group pics of our party which she sent to us a few days later. wonderful memories for keepsake. Highly recommended and perfect boat for a party of 6/7.
