We were in town for my husband’s birthday and I wanted to do something special for him. Going out on Captain Phillip’s sailboat was the perfect choice! It was such a special and wonderful excursion to go on. The boat was beautiful, Captain Phil was so nice and personable, and the snacks/drinks hit the spot. I highly recommend choosing Captain Phil and his sailboat for a great time and to learn lots of neat information about the surrounding area. We loved it, thanks again!

Great little sail boat! We booked with Captain Phillip and loved every minute of it. He has lovingly restored this vessel and it shows. There were six in our party so this fit perfectly. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and didn't overwhelm us. He was able to answer any question that we had while on the tour. Highly recommend it and would go again!

I am glad that you had a great time. I like to convey information about sailing and the bay in a manner that does not interrupt the vibe of the group.
