The Perfect Day
, Dec 2021
What an incredible day. We we looking for family time to reconnect with cousins that we haven’t spent time with in almost a decade. Ages 21-56. Captain Charlie made us feel at ease to be ourselves. We had the most spectacular time. We laughed, bonded and created memories that will last forever. We will certainly spend time with him on the Daffy again!
Exceptional sailing experience
, Dec 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed the time on the water. Captain Charlie was an excellent host and knowledgeable about sailing and a great teacher
Great opportunity for kids and adults!
, Nov 2021
Captain Charlie was terrific with our 12 and 15 year old grandsons. He was teaching as we went along &, especially the older one, was thrilled to be able to actually perform activities on the boat. Our younger grandson got quite seasick & Capt. Charlie had strategies for helping him out! I would definitely recommend this trip!
Awesome sailing adventure
, Oct 2021
We had an amazing day on the water. Captain Charlie made the trip quite enjoyable with his humor, hospitality and knowledge of the water. Would definitely recommend this as fun day trip. We would book again next time we are in the area.

Captain Charlie was great! Even with a rain delay, he made our sailing adventure awesome! The scenery was beautiful and we all took turns at the wheel. It was the highlight of our Ft Lauderdale vacation!
Not happy

Still waiting for a refund. I contacted the ship captain and let him know the situation. He was fully aware and agreed with my situation of cancelling. Viator has not refunded my money. I gave notice of cancelation too.

memorable experience!
, May 2021
My family & i LOVED daffy the sail boat & charlie our captain is a beautiful soul as well. the only thing i’d have changed about the tour is having gone snorkeling but the water was way to rough & he cant control that so i don't think its fair to give him anything less than an amazing review. we loved the humor of him, the seating, the beautiful scenery. this is definitely an experience you WONT forget !
