You won’t be disappointed - Amazing trip through the river out to the ocean. Great music, always felt safe with a highly experienced fun captain. Weather could not have been any better. Extremely relaxing. So glad we found this gem of an excursion.

A must for a first time sailor! - Amazing time with Captain Charlie on the Daffy sailboat. The Captain is knowledgeable and made us feel at ease as we sailed the ocean. I had never sailed before and was quite nervous, but by the end of the trip I felt comfortable and would easily say yes to sailing again. My husband wanted us to book this trip and he was quite satisfied with the experience that including steering the boat himself! Thanks for the memory Captain Charlie!

Captain Charlie is a blast! - Captain Charlie was fantastics and we had a great day on the Daffy. We began the day with a safety lesson and then set off for a sailing adventure. I had the opportunity to take the helm under the guidance of Charlie. We were fortunate to have a sunny, warm & breezy day and once we got to the ocean, we had perfect conditions and it felt like we were racing. What a thrill! Charlie and the Daffy were a perfect addition to our Fort Lauderdale visit & I highly recommend a sail on the Daffy!

Best sailing day ever! - Charlie was outstanding from the minute we arrived to the very end of our trip. He made us feel comfortable and safe. The day was absolutely amazing. He helped us help him if we wanted to and I got to pilot the ship! He was knowledgeable about the area and sailing on the ocean was wonderful

Enjoyable trip. - We had a great time. Captain/owner has an engaging personality and wit. We spent an hour each way motoring on the boat to the ocean and back but that was fine as we saw lots of high-end houses. Windy day for sailing but lots of fun. Would do it again.

Enjoyable trip. - We enjoyed the trip. Roughly 40 foot sailboat. Windy day but captain knows what he’s doing plus has an engaging personality and wit. About an hour each way to get to and from ocean but no problem as you get to see lots of area homes. Would do it again.

Laid back sailing experience with a hilarious old salt captain. - First things first, Captain Charlie is safe and intends to return you to shore in the same condition you left. No nonsense brief on expectations and off you go. The sail out to sea is enjoyable and views of Ft Lauderdale from the river and Intercoastal are second to none. Let’s you get your sea legs under you a bit. We had a calm day and the blue Atlantic water with the gentle rolling swell was perfect. With the right point of sail the sloop just about sailed herself. We ate, we drank and had a good time getting to know each other. Captain Charlie is an iconic old school sailor with great stories and a knowledge of local history. Would absolutely sail with this guy again and I encourage you to as well. 👍🏻👍🏻
